If you’re already familiar with the area or have done any research be assured that expectations will be met. If wishing to be pleasantly surprised is more your style, you won’t be disappointed. Expect to see manatees, dolphins, bald eagles, pelicans, osprey, roseate spoonbill and other indigenous birds. The Caloosahatchee River, Fort Myers Beach, St James City and the famous town of Matlacha on Pine Island, Matlacha Bridge, Pine Island Sound, Cabbage Key, Ding Darling wildlife refuge, the Sanibel Lighthouse, commercial fishing boats at work catching blue crab, stone crab and shrimp, swimming and shelling beaches. Stop at an uninhabited mangrove island for a picnic or visit any of the awesome local water front restaurants that your captain can access from the dock side like Bert’s Bar, Ragged Ass Saloon, Low Key Tiki, Woody’s, The Waterfront and others. And don’t be surprised if your expectations are exceeded. There’s always the chance of seeing Loggerhead sea turtles or a free jumping tarpon or an eagle swooping down to the water’s surface and then up into a tree with a 20" sea trout. That’s why our knowledgeable guides love what they do. It never gets old for the boat captain because it’s always a learning experience. Change here is perpetual so there’s always something new to see and do. With comfy, shaded boats from 18 to 26 feet, you and your group can relax while the captain guides you to locations and sights even local residents don’t get to experience without the skilled boatmanship it takes to navigate the unspoiled backcountry and complicated channel markers.
