The Marco Island Shell Club is a friendly and dedicated 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for shell enthusiasts at all levels of interest and expertise.  The Club season, which begins in late October or early November and continues through March of the next year, includes weekly  shell art workshops, which culminate in the annual Shell Show in March. Evening seminars, varied excursions,  and the end-of-year celebration and annual meeting at the end of March round out the season.

Our mission is to promote the study, conservation, history, and science of seashells and mollusks, and to encourage shell-related interests, such as shell collecting, crafting and shell art. 

  NOTE:  Because of the coronavirus, there will be  no workshops scheduled through December, 2020.  The Club plans to begin workshops in January, 2021, dependent on the status of coronavirus restrictions, and continue through Friday, March 5,2021.

The Marco Island Shell Club creates unique items to share with family and friends and to treasure forever. Proceeds fund marine science scholarships and local educational activities. Don't miss this opportunity to purchase some of the beautiful shell art created by the members of the Marco Island Shell Club.


An integral part of the mission of the Marco Island Shell Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is to "promote the study, conservation, science, history and appreciation of seashells and mollusks in all their forms..."  The Club depends upon the proceeds from the holiday sale in late fall and the annual Shell Show in March to underwrite scholarships and grants.
