Mangrove tours are available on both the Keys Cowboy (25’ Privateer) and the Snook Crook (16’ Actioncraft), which allows them to be offered in combination with any other charter. These tours are often just a way to relax after a hard day of fishing. There are extensive mangrove systems throughout south Florida, and riding through them on a boat offers a unique way to experience the region. Their iconic prop roots support an important nursery ecosystem for many fish species. There are egrets, herons, ibises, kingfishers, and ospreys perched throughout the mangroves, granting close-up views of these species. Roseate spoonbills and flamingoes are also spotted on occasion. Pods of dolphins and manatees commonly inhabit this region as well. Mangrove tours provide breathtaking photo opportunities of the local wildlife. Capt. Elmo is also familiar with local history and development of the region, resulting in a one-of-a-kind tour.
