Beach Walks

Our beach walks are led by Marine Biologists who are fun, entertaining and in-the-know!

The National Shell Museum offers guided beach walks throughout the entire year! In addition to daily walks at the Island Inn, we also offer summer monthly guided excursions at Bunche Beach with world-renowned Marine Biologist Dr. José H. Leal. Our Marine Biologists are enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge and hope to inspire you to look at our beaches and shelling in exciting new ways.
