Nestled amid a tangle of scenic tributaries and the boundless Intracoastal Waterway, Cast and Cruise Boat and Sport furnishes adventurers with the requisite vessels for nautical exploration. Setting out from the Vilano boat ramp, kayakers can paddle along the gentle cerulean waves, spotting the pods of dolphins, flocks of seabirds, and the manatee dance troupes that inhabit the area. Those who prefer to sightsee from a higher vantage point and prefer distance from the salty spray can take the motorized reins of a sprawling pontoon boat replete with drink coolers, a radio, and sunny or shaded seating for up to 14 people.
