Anglers and non-fishermen alike enjoy the wilderness setting of LAND CAPTAIN trips. Birding and wildlife viewing are popular activities in Southwest Florida and salt marshes offer an ideal vantage point for both. Alligators, Deer, Bear, and an occasional Panther cross the LAND CAPTAIN’S bow regularly while incredible numbers of Spoonbills, and other wading birds delight serious birders standing on the bank.
The Landcaptain welcomes nature photographers. Canoes are outrigger – equipped to provide extra stability and protection for valuable camera equipment.
In addition to providing a view of the wilderness, LAND CAPTAIN excursions visit other points of sightseeing interest. Locations near Everglades City and the Ten Thousand Islands are steeped in history. You’ll find rustic stone crab houses within a short distance of Indian shell mounds and ancient structures. Pirates and Conquistadors arrived here centuries ago; today, tourists continue to visit the area.
