I am not there now, BUT I often visit the island and can honestly say that I have always seen shells. Now to be clear, they're not the big, beautiful shiny shells that can be found sometimes, but I feel confident to say that you may find tiny shells, shards of shells, and maybe if you're lucky a whole big shell. :)

And maybe even sharks teeth!

Here now in topsail Beach. Beach is wide, flat and clean this year... very few shells, sharks teeth or anything else. Not so good for the artifact hunters but great for everyone else. We did find a couple tiny sharks teeth yesterday, but you damn near need a microscope. Water really warm!

Greetings dave230,

Have you clicked on the website I posted? Have you tried googling the best places to find seashells near Topsail? I have found that heading out at dawn, at low tide, after a storm, has been the most productive for finding shells.

Happy hunting!

FYI

Lea - Hutaff Island, is an important sanctuary for birds, wildlife, and a peaceful recreational area for visitors.

If the OP wants to go in the other direction, Bull Island is an uninhabited reserve north of Charleston. There is a ferry that goes out from Cape Romain.

There's a beautiful maritime forest there and lots of shells. Bring water, bug spray and food if you want it. There is nothing there, except local wildlife to include gators.

I have enjoyed fossils and shell collecting for about 50 years. Though my collection in very small I still like collecting. The cost of shells has prevented me in collecting since my wife and I live in a small mobile home.

Still I enjoy fossil.s and shells.

If you can help me to receive low prices I would appreciated.

Come to the Missiles and More Museum to view a great international shell Collection. There is also a Fossil dig behind the Talos at the front of the building. Sharks teeth and more are found there. http://missilesandmoremuseum.org/
