Embarking on a private guided luxury boat cruise to Discover St. Joe Bay, Cape San Blas, the Forgotten Coast, and St. George Island

In this blog, I want to share my profound love for the ocean and the joy of taking people on unforgettable journeys aboard my 2018 Misty Harbor Tritoon, where my husband, Captain Chris and I explore the wonders of the sea, search for dolphins, engage in snorkeling adventures, and indulge in the art of beachcombing.

The ocean has held a captivating allure for centuries, drawing in humanity with its vastness, rhythmic waves, and abundance of life. The sea inspires awe and instills a deep sense of peace. Almost immediately, one can forget the stresses of their weekly work life and enjoy the beauty of our world when we depart the boat launch.

Our private boat tours offer plenty of adventure, whether you want to see wildlife like dolphins, go snorkeling, fishing, or enjoy an exhilarating ride on our towable floaty Super Mable. We can even take you to secluded beaches that are only accessible by boat.

Our tours depart from several locations, including Port St. Joe, Apalachicola, White City, St. Andrews Marina, Cape San Blas, and Mexico Beach. We also offer intra-coastal tours, which pick up from Apalachicola and drop off in PSJ or vice versa.

Adventurers seeking a unique marine encounter will enjoy the spacious deck of our tritoon, which allows for easy navigation in various water conditions, ensuring a smooth journey for everyone on board.


Seeking Dolphins and Sea Life:

One of the highlights of our ocean expeditions is the chance to encounter dolphins and other fascinating sea creatures. With their playful antics and intelligence, Dolphins never fail to mesmerize seasoned travelers and first-time ocean explorers. We navigate the waters, seeking out these incredible beings, creating moments of connection between humans and the enchanting marine life, we have seen a “fever” of sting rays that was so huge we thought we were coming upon a sandbar! The picture below is a lucky shot that someone got of a Manta Ray.

Snorkeling Adventures:

Diving into the exhilaration of snorkeling propels our oceanic exploration to unprecedented depths—quite literally. Submerging beneath the surface, we immerse ourselves in a kaleidoscopic realm of vibrant coral reefs, teeming schools of iridescent fish, and the awe-inspiring ballet of marine life. Snorkeling offers an unparalleled perspective, granting us the privilege to witness the ocean’s extraordinary biodiversity in all its breathtaking glory.

Beachcombing Bliss:

During our Salty Fish Excursions, we often anchor at secluded coves and pristine shores where beachcombing becomes a crucial part of the experience. The shore offers a variety of natural treasures such as seashells, driftwood, and other wonders from the sea. This is an ideal time for reflection, relaxation, and a deeper appreciation of the delicate balance of the coastal ecosystem. We have collaborated with the Forgotten Coast Sea Turtle Center in Port St Joe to learn about our turtles and search for any debris that may cause harm to them.
