The Fleet That’s
Hard to Beat

Our luxurious fleet of 25-foot Sea Pro 248 DLX Bay Boats with yacht-caliber features departs from a port at 750 Palm Point Dr. in Goodland, Florida. The comforts on our watercraft include:

  • Comfortable Seating
  • Flushable Head (toilet)
  • Fresh Water for Washing Sandy Toes
  • Comfortable & Slip Resistant SeaDek
  • Stocked cooler of water and iced tea to drink

We also have a spacious Carolina Skiff, designed for groups with open seating along the front of the vessel, which provides the perfect view for all aboard. And other high-quality vessels may be operated by our captains during peak season.

Want to Join
the J Club?

Serious shellers might guess that J stands for Junonia. To be specific, Treasure Seekers guests join the J Club when they find a Scaphella Junonia. It’s a special treasure because these gastropods live 40-60 miles offshore. Imagine a shell traveling that far without being destroyed!

Although the most avid collectors seek them for their rarity and beauty, we’ve helped inexperienced guests – including children – find this unique treasure. Anyone who wants to jump aboard could be the next lucky member of our J Club!
