This will in no way be your run-of-the-mill boat tour. We never set routes or have an itinerary for the day. The area and wildlife are constantly changing, migrating or adapting to the conditions at hand. The biggest influences typically are the climate and tide so we schedule and route trips based on these and many other factors. Just a few of the details we monitor closely to ensure your trip is the best and most productive it can be! We pride ourselves on making the most of your time with us.

Once again our trips are completely customizable. This means if you wish to do nothing but search for dolphins or manatee, that's what were gonna do. If you would like to browse some real estate by water, I know the canal systems. Are beautiful shells your quarry? I know some killer spots.  Beach walks and lunch on the water, you got it. Sunset campfire on a Gulf beach, I know just the place. Seriously, Throw me an idea. I have quite a few up my sleeve as well. I guarantee we can come up with a great trip to suit your needs.

We do offer packages and prices will vary depending mainly on the length of trip and number of guests in your party. Any boat trip is limited to 6 people and most trip are booked privately, meaning the boat is yours! This is how we can offer custom trips.

Most tour boats carry 12, 20 even 40 passengers! You're pretty much stuck with whatever the set route is and whoever is standing in your way of whatever action might be happening on the well trampled water these mega tin cans use. The same goes for shelling trips as well. We only go to beaches that are rarely touched and typically inaccessible to the huge hoards of shell collectors on Marco Beach or the large vessels dumping off dozens of folks. 

Let me show you a REAL coastal Florida experience. Mangrove Maniacs is the only boat based tour company you will need.
