Naturalist Guide

Private Boat Trips

Let’s take a boat ride and learn about some factors that contribute to the health and beauty of our ecosystem.

If you have a small group (max 4) we can go out on my 20′ Boston Whaler from the yacht basin.

If you have a boat, I’d be happy to pack up my nerdy gear and join your group on your boat.

If you are traveling with a larger group I can contract out a larger vessel to accommodate groups up to 45 people.

We will enjoy just cruising, keeping an eye out for dolphins and pretty birds, taking time to talk about your experiences and how they relate to Gulf Coast marine science. We will collect water samples and test for pH, salinity and temperature. We will scope tiny marine life called plankton through a digital microscope that magnifies these microscopic invertebrates, baby fish, and plant life that create the foundation of our food chain.


Do you love walking the beach but feel perplexed or curious about some of the items you find. I love walking the shores with people who love learning about the interesting evidence of life and observing live creatures found at the shore.
