Let us guide you into The Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge, a.k.a. the backcountry, where you're guaranteed to see and experience things you've never done before. The Keys backcountry is a beautiful place of solitude and opportunity.
All trips are loosely structured to accommodate whatever you're most interested in doing, catching or seeing. Trips are for 1 to 4 passengers, everything is included, departure times are flexible, sunset trips are available and all skill levels welcome.
Activities & Charters Offered
We offer standard one activity focused charters like fishing, paddleboarding, snorkeling, exploration and relaxation but any combination of activities is possible. This flexibility allows us to accommodate a broad range and offer you the right kind of island experience.
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 two boards that can be utilized for touring, sightseeing, exercise, fishing or for when an opportunity presents itself.
Shallow Water Sportfishing | Fish
by Boat, Board & Wading
Fishing with options! Fish the shallow water reefs, wrecks, flats and backcountry. We cover the whole Lower Keys fishery and provide something for everyone whether sport, dinner or just fun. You can try the stealthy approach of a paddleboard, the flexibility of fishing from a boat or the immersive experience of wading the shallow waters of the backcountry.
Underwater Scenery | Snorkel
Colorful, Diverse & Full of Life
Snorkeling in the shallow water has the advantage of always being available, no matter the weather there's always a calm, place to see something interesting whether the mangroves, coral or other backcountry areas. For the adventurous, our barrier reef just six miles off of the island chain provides a seemingly unlimited range of color, coral and creatures.
Sandbars & 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 the most popular and a great way to spend a couple of hours. Add to that our turtle, bird, shark and stingray population and you've got yourself some great sightseeing, photo opportunities and exploration.
