Our Boat & Location

Our 40-foot long boat, The Explorer, has comfortable padded seats, a bathroom, beautiful views along its perimeter, and a fully covered deck to shield you from the sun. For your convenience, our affordable, family-friendly cruises depart daily (depending on the weather, of course!) from our homeport in AL. My boat has a steel roof, covering the entire seated area, resulting in a 15-degree reduction in temps under the shade of the boat.  My boat has all padded seats, and everyone has a seat on my boat. There is a bathroom aboard the boat.

Its open sides allow full views of dolphins, other boats, and our uniquely gorgeous local scenery. The views are unobstructed. Adults are also welcome to bring their own favorite beverages or food aboard. We will happily make a suggestion of our favorite places that do fabulous carry-out food, too.
