All sorts of wildlife including bottlenose dolphins, manatees, sea turtles, birds of prey, a wide variety of wading, diving and shorebirds and about 200 species of fish make Lemon Bay Aquatic Preserve and surrounding areas their permanent or seasonal home.

A number of rookery islands in the area host a wide variety of nesting birds in late winter and spring.

Come aboard my safe and comfortable 25' Bluewave Bay Boat, "HYDROTHERAPY TOO" for a few hours of enjoyable scenery and relaxation. Watch dolphins frolic and birds dive or wade for their dinner while we keep an eye out for those elusive manatees on a scenic cruise on Lemon Bay Aquatic Preserve in the area of Palm Island Resort, Don Pedro Island, Little Gasparilla Island, Stump Pass and Gasparilla Pass. 

HYDROTHERAPY TOO's open design allows passengers to move freely about the deck for up-close and personal viewing of playful dolphins, curious manatees and other marine life and its shallow draft allows us to access backwater areas. Coast Guard Regulations limit our number of passengers to six so it's never crowded and there is ample, comfortable seating for everyone. 

*****If we don't find dolphins your next tour is FREE!*****

For parties of four to six passengers, couples or smaller groups interested in additional activties, I recommend a Private Tour custom tailored to your party's interests.

For parties of one to three passengers, I recommend joining a Mixed Party Dolphin Eco Tour that may include another party but will have no more than six passengers aboard. 

Private Tours are $100 per hour total for up to six passengers with a two-hour minimum charge. Along with viewing the abundant wildlife, a Private Tour can include wading and snorkeling sandbars looking for live sea creatures, beachcombing for shells and shark teeth, dining at a restaurant on the bay,  fishing or watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico.

Fishing Licenses are covered under my Guide License.

I recommend scheduling your tour in advance but I can usually work in a Private Tour on short notice.  

Mixed Party Dolphin Eco Tours are $45 per passenger and last about 2-hours. Please contact me a few days in advance if you have less than four passengers in your party so I have the opportunity  to group smaller parties together.

We depart from the marina next to Leverock's Restaurant in Cape Haze near Englewood, Florida. HYDROTHERAPY TOO is in the third slip on the right on the first wooden dock past the sign for the Rum Bay Water Taxi near the restaurant entrance.

Clean restrooms are available for your convenience.

If you are staying in Palm Island Resort, I can pick

you up at the  Rum Bay Restaurants dock.  

You can reach me at 501-844-9028 or email to check my availability.


If I'm on a tour I may not be able to take your call so email is the best way to make arrangements for your tour, even if it's short notice.

To secure your reservation, select the appropriate PayPal button below, enter the date and time of your reservation, click on "Pay Now" and enter your credit card information.

It is not necessary to have a PayPal account. 

Gift Certificates for that special occasion are available.

I recommend bringing visors or hats, Polarized sunglasses and slip-resistant footwear. Jackets or hoodies may come in handy as it’s often a lot cooler on the water than you might expect.
