The Platinum Excursion included swimming with horses which was actually a great experience - highly recommended activity if you stay in Bradenton or on Anna Maria Island!
The ride featured a peaceful walk across the water then was followed by a couple swims with the horses; again, the horses being well-trained allowed for a safe and enjoyable experience.

My husband and I went out on the water with Aaron and it was an incredible experience and let me tell you why: 1. Fishing runs in Aaron’s blood you can tell, to say he is a passionate fisherman is an understatement.
Aaron runs a really great fishing charter, is extremely knowledgeable about the area and is a great guy.

I would highly recommend over parasailing, as Hans can direct the flight course, and with headsets the passenger can converse with Hans as he gives a great overview of the area.
Awesome experience... beautiful views... exciting ride...Hans (pilot) points out marine life and gives commentary.

From the girl that checked us in at the office, the guy who "taxied" us out to the boat on a smaller boat, to the two guys who ran the parasailing boat, every single person was engaging, fun and made us feel at ease.
Our captain, Mark, was excellent and knew the area well and took us to the spots where we were likely to see wildlife.
