What you'll do

You will board my spacious 26-ft World Cat at the Jug Creek Marina. We will head west on the Creek which is lined with mangrove and habitat of dolphin, manatee, herons, egrets and osprey. Along the way we pass under the Stringfellow Road Bridge and pass the Lazy Flamingo restaurant. Further along we enter Back Bay and transit Dead Man"s Curve. You will view the beautiful mansion on Little Bokeelia Island which was built in 1902 by the famous battery magnate, Charles Burgess. When we exit the Creek we enter Pine Island Sound and the vista is amazing: Useppa Island, Cayo Costa, and the Boca Grande Pass. We will return to the Marina via Charlotte Harbor and Shell Cut. You will be amazed at the beauty of Charlotte Harbor and learn about the history, geography and wildlife. On the cruise back you can look out for dolphins, and enjoy relaxing music.

Upon retiring from teaching about 10 years ago I have spent countless hours on the water sharing my passion for boating, exploring, and experiencing local ecosystems. I love to meet new people and see families and groups bond over new shared experiences.

Where you'll be

Jug Creek is a fabulous area for marine wildlife and nesting birds. Dolphins are almost always sighted close to the boat in the Creek, in Pine Island Sound, and other parts of Charlotte Harbor. "Battery Island" is a prime example of old Florida architecture and of historical significance.

Rated 4.98 out of 5 from 130 reviews.

Captain Will is an original! We got our tour start time wrong and he went out of his way to provide an unscheduled tour to us AFTER the tour we missed. We can't thank him enough! His knowledge of the area and its wildlife is priceless. He is also a great storyteller. You won't be bored and the time flies by! We weren't ready for it to end.

Where do I begin?! Captain Will was wonderful! We had to reschedule from our first date as a storm came in and Will wanted to make sure were safe so we went back to shore. We got to go to Boca Grande the next day and we were blown away. It is absolutely stunning there! The prettiest green water and beaches, beautiful scenery and gorgeous houses! Captain Will was very knowledgeable about the area and took his time so we could see dolphins. The marina that he departs from has a frequent dolphin that comes by named Leftie as he is missing a flipper and was the sweetest thing! Leftie and Boca Grande were my favorite part of my trip. I can’t wait to come back!
