Escape aboard HYDROTHERAPY for a few hours of recreation and relaxation on the scenic waters of Southwest Florida. Watch dolphins frolic and birds dive, wade or skim for a meal while we keep an eye out for those elusive manatees.
All sorts of wildlife including bottlenose dolphins, manatees, ospreys, bald eagles and a wide variety of wading birds, diving birds and shorebirds make Lemon Bay their permanent or seasonal home. Rookery islands in the area host over a dozen species of nesting birds from mid-Winter through early Summer.
HYDROTHERAPY is a 2022 23’ Hurricane Deck Boat powered by a 200 HP Yamaha outboard. Her 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 her shallow draft allows access to backwater areas. All tours are private and there is comfortable seating for everyone.
We typically cruise in the area of Don Pedro Island State Park, Gasparilla Pass, Gasparilla Island and Little Gasparilla Island. Custom Charters to the Boca Grande Bayou, Boca Pass, Cabbage Key, Cayo Costa and other destinations are available on request.
