Dolphins and Manatees
These marine mammals are some of the most famous residents of Sarasota Bay. Dolphins are often seen corralling fish and using cooperative hunting methods. It is not uncommon to see calves learning these methods right alongside the adults. They are playful, curious, and a familiar sight in our waters. Manatees are also seen frequently in the shallow areas of the bay. These giant mammals feed on sea grass and are able to tolerate both fresh and salt water. They prefer the warmest waters, and take "rests" on the bottom of the sea floor for minutes at a time. It is illegal to feed/harass marine mammals, so your captain will keep a safe distance while you enjoy the company of these amazing creatures.
Birds of Florida
Did you know there are over 500 bird species that call Florida home? Some of the most commonly seen birds in the bay are brown pelicans, egrets, night herons, terns, gulls, roseate spoonbills, ospreys, cormorants, anhingas, and bald eagles. If you are an avid bird watcher, you don't want to miss this opportunity to observe a plethora of species in one place.
Sunset trips and Boat Tours
Sunsets in Florida are magical. Book an evening boat ride with us and let our experienced captains take care of the rest. These private charters allow guests to relax and unwind on the water without the worry of operating the boat and navigating the bay. Bring your own food and drinks, and we will provide the coolers, ice, and water. Sarasota has historic locations and noteworthy sites that can be viewed from the water. If interested, our captains can show you these places and give you a little bit of local history.
