On an ecotour we’ll get close looks at mangrove islands where great varieties of birds nest, Islamorada is a birdwatcher’s paradise. You’ll be able to walk a far away, forgotten beach in the Everglades, one of the last places untouched by man. Ride with me and we’ll seek out pods of dolphins playfully jumping and diving thought the crystal clear water, dolphins are plentiful and encounters are quite frequent in the Keys.
We can even take a trip deep into the Everglades to serene creeks where it’s dead silent except for the sound of jumping mullet breaking the surface, tarpon rolling and birds chirping. Additionally, a trip to the glades means that you have an opportunity to see American Crocodiles in the wild. The glades are one of the only places you can encounter American Crocodiles in nature.
Depending on conditions including water depth, temperature, bottom contour, topography and wind, other sights that you may see are as follows:
Stingrays prowling the bottom
Sharks of varying sizes
Tailing redfish, permit or bonefish (tailing refers to when these fish are in shallow water and have their heads down in the grass and mud feeding so that their tails stick up out of that water)
Schools of jack crevalle
Schools of baitfish such as threadfin herring and pilchards
The bottom line is this, no day out on the water in Islamorada is the same, you never really know what you’ll run across. There are always opportunities for photo ops and unique experiences of all kinds. Come for a relaxing and nature filled boat ride, it will leave you excited and wanting more.
