Our local waters produce an incredibly variety of sport and game fish including:  trout, redfish, spanish mackerel, tarpon, king mackerel, trigger fish, grouper (gag, red and goliath), amberjack, snapper, rock bass (black sea bass), flounder, grunt (white snapper), whiting, pompano, little tunny, blue fish, mullet and sharks.  Our waters also produce stone crabs, blue crabs and shrimp.  On a typical day we will see a wide variety of non-game fish such as pinfish, pigfish, squirrel fish and stingrays.  While traversing the National Wildlife Refuge, manatees, alligators, and a staggering variety of migratory and resident birds can be seen.  While on the water, we are often escorted by porpoises and large manta rays are seen in their aerial displays as they leap from the water.
