Visiting the Clearwater, FL area? Have friends/family coming into town and want to treat them to something exciting and different?

A Private Charter to the Islands is a taste of the real Florida lifestyle, safe and fun for the kids, and is the perfect way to relax and unwind with the privacy of your own group.

Explore beautiful uncrowded white sandy beaches with Tropical Shells, and Sand Dollars galore! Cruise the calm Gulf waters spotting Dolphins, Manatees, and other wildlife, and bring some lunch and drinks for a picnic on the beach.

Hope to see you soon! - Captain Todd.

What a great experience! We had 2 families on the trip with 3 kids ages 11, 14 and 16. We knew we were in for a great day the moment we set foot on the boat. Captain Todd did a great job of making everybody feel comfortable and relaxed. Right after we left the dock we saw dolphins! Captain Todd... More

I found Todd and his company Private Island Charters through Trip Advisor and his top rating was well deserved. There were 6 of us out on his boat for the day (aged 9 - 73) and to say we loved it would be an understatement. His boat was clean and modern, he was patient and completely accommodating, even going out... More

We did a last minute search for boating options as our December week after Christmas was showing some favorable weather. We did not want to rent our own boat as we had no clue as to what we were doing. I wanted a private/personal experience as we've done the boat rides to Anclote from the Spongedocks several times (which is... More

This was definitely the highlight of our vacation. Captain Todd was awesome! We went to three sand bars and found some of the largest sea shells of our entire trip. Captain Todd was wonderful with our two kids (ages 9 and 12). They had a great time swimming and searching for sea shells. The boat ride was relaxing and enjoyable.... More

We had a really great time with Captain Todd showing us around. We had a small group including my wife and two kids (10 & 7) and Captain Todd was very personable with everyone on the trip. We had an amazing day on the water with crystal clear Gulf water and very little wind so we could see straight down... More

Just went out today with Captain Todd and could not have been more satisfied! Had a group of 7: 2 couples and 3 children ages 9-14. Saw turtles, fish and dolphins up close. Visited beautiful white sand beaches that easily rivaled the Caribbean. If you have kids, bring big bags for all of the shells they will find. We found... More

We had such a great time with Captain Todd! He was very laid back and fun. We were able to bring drinks, food and beach toys. The islands were beautiful and quiet. We enjoyed sitting under the umbrellas and walking the beach. We saw dolphins and lots of birds. Everything was perfect! I highly recommend this charter.
