This week, I went on the Tampa Bay Ferry over to Shell Key Preserve and it was the perfect day trip! While on the Ferry, I got to learn about the history of the area and got to see a baby dolphin! 
Once I got off on Shell Key Preserve, I had 3 hours to explore before the Ferry came back to pick everyone up! While exploring, I saw sea turtle nests and found so many beautiful shells! The water was so clear and the perfect temperature for swimming in this heat.
The Tampa Bay Ferry leaves from Fort De Soto and will take you to either Shell Key or Egmont Key for the day. It departs at 10am, 11am, and 2pm and will return to pick you back up after 3-4 hours. If you want to see more about my trip check out our Tik Tok!
