Are you looking to spend quality time outside with your family away from the crowds this summer? Charter a skiff with one of our licensed captains! All boat captains are also experienced marine educators. Let our educators show your family how to catch nearshore fish with a seine net or show you the best spots to search for crabs! If you prefer to pack a picnic and relax on the beach that is fine too!
