Overview

31' Eastern Boat, holds 13 passengers for an intimate lunch or sunset cruise. While traveling through the Boca Bayou and Boca Grande Isles our captains will point out different homes and businesses of interest, along with any wildlife we see. Usually dolphins jump in our wake, so make sure you bring a camera. Some of our normal destinations include Cabbage Key, Useppa, and Captiva islands. We also do private tours upon request.

Reservations recommended if you want to guarantee a spot but if you just decide to go at the last minute, if they aren't fully booked then it's not a problem to get in without reservations.
