A Florida Master Naturalist guides a small, shallow-water craft to remote, uninhabited islands, answering questions about the delicate ecosystem and wildlife while guests collect indigenous shells. Shell hunters may even catch glimpses of dolphins and rare wading birds along the way. A minimum of four passengers is required to schedule the tour.
Reel Kind Fishing
Reel Kind Fishing charters boats on which adventurers explore backwater wetlands, protected freshwater, and saltwater regions that are home to diverse marine life. Along with licensed and experienced captains, the company supplies rods, reels, tackle, and bait, ensuring that even novice fishers can participate. Tour-takers might nab snook, redfish, spotted seatrout, and tarpon, the four of which can be housed together in a jumbo aquarium for a fish reality show, as long as a sassy blowfish joins the mix. Each boat seats up to three people for half-days, three-quarter days, or full days, with the vessels heading either inshore or offshore near the Gulf of Mexico. Explorers might bring a hat, sunglasses, snacks, and jackets, according to the weather, and smocks depending on how neatly their co-tourists can eat.
So friendly, so accommodating, and so knowledgeable about the wildlife and nature we passed on the boat rides and about all of the shells we collectedKristen K, TripAdvisor, 10/2/12
