The boat we are using for our wildlife tours is a 19 foot power catamaran that we have had customized specifically for our tours. This boat is very stable, quiet and is capable of getting into very shallow water. The boat is filled with foam flotation for added safety and all required safety gear is carried aboard. There are two 6 ½ foot long cushioned seats, on either side of the boat which are shaded by a Bimini top. This arrangement gives excellent visibility which is helpful when observing dolphins and manatees.
On board we carry reference charts of some of the commonly seen birds that we encounter on our tours. On the back of the chart we have provided a map of the area so you may keep track of our location. We use an underwater hydrophone (microphone) to listen to the sounds of dolphins, manatees and other underwater sea creatures. Binoculars are available for your uses, but are usually not necessary.
