We’ve Got The Guinness World Record!

UPDATE: We have the title!

The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel have the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the largest human image of a seashell… Yes, that’s a thing, who knew?

The event took place on none other than National Seashell Day of course! In its third year of celebration, National Seashell Day fell on Thursday, June 21, 2018, which is also the first day of Summer. We couldn’t think of a better way to welcome Summer than to get together with friends or co-workers and shellebrate these fascinating mollusks that make our beaches so unique to the Gulf Coast.

What WAS the previous world record?

We thought you might ask that… 855! The previous record is held by the Shell Oil Company, who in 2017 organized a team-budding exercise for gas station owners in Turkey. They formed the famous Shell Oil company logo with 855 gas station owners and had a great time doing it we’re sure!
