Get out and Explore!
What is the ride like?
FUN: Our boat tours are more adventurous than other boat excursions in the area. We take you to remote beaches and get you closer to the wildlife than any other operator.
COMFORTABLE: Our custom Skiffs have ample room and padded bench seating. We cruise at a comfortable 25-30 mph.
FAMILY FRIENDLY: Our custom Skiffs are the perfect choice for those looking for a family friendly cruise. We have comfortable bench seating and a large bow deck making it very easy to get on and off the boat. Our railings are very sturdy and allow for excellent wildlife viewing throughout the excursion. We are also one of few boat tour operators who are USCG Inspected and Approved to carry more than 6 people. We max our capacity to 16 people on Private tours and 12 people on mixed tours.
How many people can the boat hold?
16. Our custom Skiff is inspected by the United States Coast Guard and is approved to carry up to 16 people on Private Tours and 12 people on Public Tours. Please Contact Us if you have any questions.
What should I bring?
We recommend bringing towels, sunscreen, a hat (with a strap) sunglasses with lanyard, a camera (at your own risk), a bucket or bag to collect shells, a reusable water bottle and any medications you may need. We also recommend wearing your swimwear underneath your clothing.
Are children allowed?
YES! They must be able to fit into a U.S.C.G.-approved life-vest.
We recommend ages 2 and up. Feel free to contact us with specific questions.
We offer discounted prices for our youth passengers!
Do we have to wear Life Jackets/Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs)?
Yes and No.
In the state of Florida, children under 6 are required to wear a United States Coast Guard Approved PFD while underway on any vessel less than 26 feet (make sure the PFD has "U.S.C.G. Approved" printed on it).
Although children older than 6 are not required to wear a PFD, we highly recommend weak or non-swimmers do so.
It is up to the individual Captain to determine if PFDs are needed depending on the sea conditions.
We have child and adult PFDs available for use at no additional charge. If you would like us to provide complimentary type III (vest style) PFDs for the trip, please specify when making the reservation how many adults and children you plan to bring and their individual weights. Feel free to contact us if you have any concerns.
are dogs allowed?
Yes. Dogs are allowed on ALL of our PRIVATE tours.
How far out do we go?
We cover over 30 miles round trip on our excursions.
We are never more than 3 nautical miles from the shore.
What happens when the weather is bad?
Our captains thoroughly check the weather before each tour. If they determine the weather to be potentially dangerous, they will decided to cancel the tour.
Should the tour be canceled due to severe weather, we will attempt to contact you as soon as possible and will offer a full refund or the option to reschedule.
It is very important to leave a good contact number or email so we can get ahold of you if we need to.
What is the cancellation/change policy?
You may change or cancel your reservation anytime up to 24 hours before the scheduled time of your tour departure for a full refund. Any "no call, no show", late arrivals, or last minute cancelations within 24 hours of your scheduled time of departure may be subject to the full purchase price of the reservation. Cancelations due to dangerous weather conditions prior to or immediately after departure will be fully refunded if you are unable to reschedule. If potentially dangerous weather conditions force us to return to the dock 1/3 of the way or more through the tour you will be refunded based on the amount of time spent on the water.
Can I smoke on the boat?
No smoking or vaping is allowed on the boat
Can I bring a camera?
You may bring a camera on board, but please keep in mind that by doing so, you are agreeing to take on any liability of lost or damaged items.
Can we swim with the dolphin or manatee?
These are wild animals protected under the Federal Marine Mammal Protection Act.
It is illegal to swim with these wild animals.
Will me or my things get wet?
It depends on the conditions.
There is always a chance of getting splashed. Please ask the captain for the best place to sit.
Can I bring food or snacks?
Yes. We encourage guests to bring food and beverages on our longer excursions.
Will you have water?
Yes. We offer clean reusable cups and filtered water on all of our tours. We do not offer water bottles as single use plastics are notorious for ending up in our oceans. We encourage guests to bring a reusable water bottle. We also have a large cooler with ice to store all of your drinks you would like to bring.
Can I bring alcohol?
Yes. Alcohol is permitted. We will have a large cooler with ice to store all of your beverages.

When do you take payment?
We take payment prior to departure. This makes your boarding process very easy. Just show up with your gear and be ready for an adventure!

Our captains greatly appreciate cash gratuity.
