I periodically go out to try and clean up much of the fishing tackle and line that gets left tangled on the mangrove islands, though it is tough and there is only so much ground I can cover in one day. The fishing line can entangle birds, and manatee can accidently ingest it as they are foraging on the flats. I have come across two pelicans so far this year that were entangled in fishing line and hanging from trees. Unfortunately, I found them too late and they were already dead. The pictures are of line and tackle I pulled off just one island in about 3 hours.

The captain was also very well informed about all aspects of nature and was happy to answer lots of questions from our enthusiastic kids.
ColoradoTodd – Fort Collins, CO said..."Great Dolphin Watching!"
Saw lots of dolphins, birds and even a manatee cow and calf at the dock. I thought it was very informative and fun and included a stop on the beach for shelling.
