These are nearshore excursions and you will be traveling at cruising speed (about 25 knots) up to a few hours in each direction on the Gulf and/or Pine Island sound. If you are prone to seasickness or you are elderly, this is probably not for you. Please inquire if you have any concerns/questions.
One of longer trips you will spend 1 ½ hrs on the intercoastal waterway enroute to this remote Island of Jimmy Buffett fame where he reportedly wrote “Cheeseburger in Paradise” at the “Dollar Bar” where you can donate a buck and leave your legacy. The extra hour tour will allow time to climb the water tour for 360 degree views and a little exploring. Tip: don’t ask for fries, it’s potato salad or coleslaw.
