Full moon and night trips are a great way to take advantage of Florida’s cooler climate as well as catching night feeding fish. It is proven that certain species of fish feed more at night during the full moon cycle because of stronger tides. We will target snook, tarpon, grouper, lane snapper, yellowtail snapper, mangrove snapper, mutton snapper, shark, and permit.
Sightseeing, dolphin and eco tours are a wonderful way to spend a day relaxing in beautiful Florida. Along these tours you can see the luxurious homes that line the waters edge, as well as many forms of wild life. Many times dolphin will be within cameras view playing and surfing along with the boat. There are many birds to see like Bald Eagles and Egrets as well as many other species. You may also see manatees, sea turtles, and the occasional salt-water croc.
Combination trips are a great way to knock out several peoples interest all in one trip. Kids and non-anglers get bored of watching us enthusiastic angler’s having our fill of fun. This trip you can pick between fishing, sightseeing, shelling, and scuba diving. Let the kids play and swim while the adults lounge on an island sipping on cocktails. Or set out and venture the island and find the awesome shells you won’t find on those crowded beaches.
