Florida Marine Life ...
The purple majesty known as the Gulf Stream courses through the Florida Straits south of Key West and moves steadily northward along the entire east coast of Florida. Like its color, its pace is majestic, a steady 4 knots. It's a mighty tropical river from 25 to 40 miles in width. Its temperature varies from a summertime 86° off Key West to 75° off Jacksonville in winter. For those who spearfish, many fish, including flounder, grouper, snapper, tarpon, wahoo, triggers, tunas, cobia, dolphin and mackerel, are abundant. For just the "lookers and photographers" sea turtles, angelfish, right whales, manta rays, Goliath groupers and sunfish can often be spotted just offshore.
A hero to many
Lost but not forgotten!

Unfortunately, we are not running trips offshore "at this time" for the first time in 26 years ... Hope things will change sooner than later but due to logistics of the last crazy year ... we will update as soon as we are able.
