Up to six participants will board the Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserves’ 25′ Triumph Windsorcraft vessel, take a short ride to the snorkel site, then don masks and snorkels to see firsthand the seagrass beds and other habitats marine creatures call home. Sea urchins, varieties of fish, seastars, whelks and other animals can be discovered. Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserves staff will assist in collection and identification of these animals, as well as discuss the importance of aquatic preserves and the species that depend on these estuarine habitats. Participants should expect to be out for 2 hours. We will have a small cooler aboard with bottled water. No large coolers please due to limited deck space. Please wear a bathing suit, and plan to bring snorkel gear (if you have it, otherwise gear will be provided), towel, water, sunscreen, and hat.
Meeting place for trip is the Gasparilla Marina: 15001 Gasparilla Rd. Placida, Florida 33946. Participants are required to pay the $5 parking fee at Marina office prior to boarding the boat, and must be on board at time of scheduled departure.
Please note – tours are planned around the tide and current to provide the best possible underwater visibility conditions. If for any unforeseen reason the conditions are poor for snorkeling, we will provide a nature boat tour during the scheduled time. If the forecast is calling for inclement weather, guests will be notified via email on the day prior to their trip and will be given a refund.
