Before embarking on the 8-hour journey, inexperienced boaters receive navigation training from a knowledgeable staffer, which covers steering, reading nautical charts, and the procedure for challenging nearby boats to a scavenger hunt. At the conclusion of skipper school, up to five passengers can clamber aboard a 15- or 17-foot Boston Whaler to fish or explore sandy islands across Tampa Bay’s gently lapping waters. Each vessel contains a helpful map of nearby waterways, which illustrates navigable channels and the borders of fish Congressional districts.

About I.C. Sharks
A seafood market stocked with fresh fish. A marina with direct access to the Weedon Island Preserve. Boat rentals. At I.C. Sharks, staff members sate clients’ hungers for both seafood and coastal exploration, specializing in these and other seashore exploits. The scent of steamed blue crabs lures visitors into the facility’s crab shanty, C.R. Crabs, or into the fish market, where I.C.'s crew works closely with local fishermen to source daily catches of fish, including grouper, tuna, and snapper. At the docks, boating experts teach customers to man Boston Whalers before they launch for up to a day’s worth of boating recreation. Engines roar as these vessels follow charts through nearby islands, where fishermen plop lines into the water or sightseers marvel at dolphins as they sign autographs in their natural habitats. Guests can enjoy a variety of fresh seafood dishes at the waterfront cafe and tiki bar, including fresh grouper sandwiches, fresh Florida fish tacos, and smoked mahi mahi fish spread, washing it down with an adult beverage, including frozen drinks.
