Bringing the family to Dauphin Island July 12-19.
Just wondering how to look for shells? Best time of day? In the water, on the beach?
My kids are 6 and 9 and want to find shells. Any tips?

Also, they told me they need flashlights for crabs. What is that all about?

Any other fun activities for kids nearby?

thanks

We went in August and had a wonderful time. We stayed at the campground in a tent. It was a great place for my children, who are 8 and 5. We found shells at both beaches and also were able to see some horseshoe crabs on the west end beach. Everyone was so friendly and the food was great where ever we went.(even the gas station LOL) We also found hermit crabs in numerous places but the usually escaped during the night. We will be going back soon and I hope we can stay in a rental for a week. I love Dauphin Island what an adventure with the fort, beaches, bird watching(which we did not do on purpose)and the wonderful people. Thank you to every one.
