The Mangrove Islands & Flats | Paddle
Flow Through The Backcountry Scenery
Expect to paddle with minimal effort while floating inches above sharks, rays and other sealife. The tides and winds will carry you between islands, along beaches, sandbars and anywhere else you desire, you are literally "going with the flow". We provide up to three boards that can be utilized for touring, sightseeing, exercise, fishing or for when an opportunity presents itself.
Underwater Scenery | Snorkel
Colorful, Diverse & Full of Life
Snorkeling is a great way to get up close and personal with the local sealife and experience a range of beautiful colors and underwater diversity. In The Keys we have the flexibility of many interesting snorkel areas. They include the mangrove islands, inshore coral heads, patch reefs and our barrier reef just six miles off of the island chain.
Sandbars Islands & Beaches | Relax
Explore, Relax & Sightsee The Tidal Sands
The sandbars and beaches are the gems of the backcountry. These tidal oases emerge at low tide producing some of the most picturesque areas of the Keys. A great way to spend a day swimming, soaking up the rays and trying a few activities like paddleboarding or snorkeling all from your own personal slice of sandy paradise.
Dolphin, Wildlife & Sealife | Explore
View Keys Animal Life, Above & Below The Waterline
The sealife in the keys comes in many forms with annual migrations, resident wildlife and unique creature encounters all year. Dolphin watching is a a great way to spend a couple of hours and if you add to that our turtle, bird, shark and stingray population you've got yourself some great sightseeing, photo opportunities and exploration.
Shallow Water Sportfishing | Fish
by Boat, Board & Wading
We cover the whole Lower Keys fishery with something for everyone including paddleboard fishing. As an eco minded charter we primarily practice catch and release.
