BLAKE TOURS

DOLPHIN SUNSET CRUISES
DOLPHIN ECO TOURS

AND PRIVATE CHARTERS
ON LEMON BAY NEAR

ENGLEWOOD FLORIDA
WITH

CAPTAIN JERRY BLAKE

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",

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. There is ample comfortable seating for  everyone aboard. Coast Guard Regulations limit our

number of passengers to six so it's never crowded. 


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


For parties of four to six passengers or couples seeking privacy,

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 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 variety of other activities can be included

in a Private Tour including wading a sandbar looking for live

sea creatures, beachcombing for shells and shark teeth,

fishing, snorkeling, dining at a restaurant on the bay or

watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. Angler's

Fishing Licenses are covered under my Florida Guide

License so it is not necessary to purchase fishing licenses. 


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 can

group smaller parties together.


We depart from the marina next to Leverock's Restaurant in Cape Haze near Englewood, Florida. My slip is the third one 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 on Don Pedro Island or in Palm Island Resort,

I can pick you up there.  

Email jerryblaketours@gmail.com to check my availability.

You can also  reach me at 501-844-9028 but if I'm on a tour

I won't be able to take your call so email is the best

way to make arrangements for your tour.

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.
