“Fishing and Shelling”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

No trip to Anna Maria Island/Cortez, Florida for us is not complete with fishing or spending the day with Captain Kathe. Captain Kathe is a 4th generation commercial fisherwomen who provides boat tours, fishing, shelling and nature cruises out of Cortez, Florida.

This past week we did 2 trips; a 2-hour shelling trip and a 3-hour fishing trip. She is just plain fun. Knows and loves the area so not only do have a fun time you come back with a better understanding of the people and habitat.

Thanks Kathe, see you next year.

“Great time playing with the dolphins”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

We had a great 2 hour ride with Captain Kathe and her spiniels, Pup-pup and Tippy-toes. The dogs found the dolphins who were ready to play in our boat wake. The captain is a great and knowledgeable lady as well as a fun-loving captain. How did her dogs know that dolphins or manatees were in the area. The cruise was spectacular. Look for the you-tube videos.

“Beautiful Boat Ride”
Reviewed December 11, 2011

Found Captain Kathe's at Star Fish Restaurant. We were the only passengers other than the Captain's two cocker spaniels. The dogs barked when they sensed dolphin in the area and they were never wrong. (The rest of the time they were quiet.) It was a lovely trip at a reasonable cost. We saw beautiful scenery, birds, dolphins, etc., and we learned a bit about the area.
