SECOND!  We board the Miss Daisy, a 40 foot pontoon boat, for a “Feet wet” tour of Mangrove nurseries, Saltmarsh estuaries, and seagrass flats…ALL of which are critical habitat for hundreds of species that inhabit our inshore waters.

Our professionally operated tour boat is stable, dry and comfortable.
