Hi and welcome to The Florida Everglades... Yes, that is a photo of me, Captain Jim... Everyone expects to see a guy in a very typical "Captain's outfit..." Hat, shades, a little weathered, salty, etc. Well, that is me on any given day, but I don't consider myself atypical... That's because of my passion for all things Florida isn't typical; mine comes naturally...

Gowing up in Florida has been an incredible journey... That journey has lead me to The Port Of The Islands as a Captain and Master Naturalist living in The Florida Everglades... I am a University of Florida graduate, and that makes me a Fighting Gator residing in a lot of Gator Country...

So, come with me and step aboard The Summer Breeze and enter an environment that is like no other in the world... With an ancient history, boundless wildlife, and endless places to explore... You will not only discover a real piece of Florida, you just might discover a piece of yourself that's been waiting for the right opportunity to be set free... 

"Every Trip... An Adventure..."
 Jim
Captain & Master Naturalist

 Hello Everyone this is First Mate Terri, with Salty Dawg Scarlett, and we welcome you to our neighborhood, The Florida Everglades... I'm a Chicago girl, but I have been in Florida for over 25 years, and although I miss certain things about The Windy City, there's nothing quite like The Florida Everglades...

We would like our guests to understand that "Every Trip Is An Adventure." Whether you're interested in eco touring, beachcombing, or any other tours, we want you to fully experience the wilderness with the time you have to spend in The 10,000 Islands.

The Captain and I consider it our responsibilities to guide you through the 10,000 Islands based on your goals and reasons for visiting this wilderness. And we believe the best way to fulfill this responsibility is by a Private Boat Tour... Private Boat Tours enables us to focus on two significant factors... Your interests and the conditions we face on the day of your Adventure, for conditions are everything in the 10,000 Islands. Combining these factors enables us to personalize your Adventure.

Therefore, no two trips can be precisely alike, and we believe this is how you, the Adventurer, can enjoy this unique environment to the fullest extent of our time together as Captain and Crew...

The only rule we have aboard The Summer Breeze is... "If the Crew is happy, the Captain and First Mate are happy..." And Scarlett... Of course..

Visit Panther Key...  The Island where John Gomez, famed pirate and adventurer, once lived and is buried somewhere on the island.

Take a Private Boat Tour to The Ruins of Fakahatchee Bay and Fakahatchee Island.
​This area, deep in The Everglades, was once home to The Calusa, also known as "The Shell Indians". 

The Island and surrounding area are rich in history and not much has changed since the early 1900s, when farmers and fishermen first settled around Fakahatchee Bay.
