Off the Hook Adventures offers you and up to five of your friends or family the opportunity to spend time together on a private tour. Private as in, you have the boat and captain to yourselves for the duration. No strangers, you know all the guests on board the boat. As long as your group can agree on your itinerary, Captain Corey will oblige your request within reason.

We were greeted promptly as scheduled at the Caxambas Park & Marina. We booked two-two hour sessions back to back and were pleased that we did. We were able to see the sights we wanted to see, do some shelling along the way and enjoy dolphins, and eagles as well as all the other wildlife around us.

The Captain kept us entertained with his quick wit and knowledge of the area and the wildlife. The boat was stocked with non-alcoholic beverages and snacks for our afternoon adventure. There were times due to the lack of wind we were forced to motor, and when the wind cooperated we were able to experience the peacefulness of sailing.

If you decide to try and book a trip the day you want to go, send a text! The website might show no openings and if they are available they will let you know as he did for us. All six of us enjoyed our afternoon outing.

We had a wonderful stay on the catamaran, where on the one hand we could talk a lot with the boat driver but on the other hand we could visit and enjoy the nature and the different islands. Also the shelling was not too short. we found more and larger clams here than on sanibel.
The trip is really recommended for everyone!

We go to Marco Island every year in the winter and never miss a sailing/shelling trip with Capt Cory and his crew. You sail along the Marco coast watching for dolphins, pelicans and manatees. Mid way into your adventure you are dropped off at one of the many islands to walk the shell covered beach. Cory is knowledgeable about the wild life, the ocean and the environment off Marco. This is truly a gem. His boats are safe well taken care of and it is so much fun. We never would go to Marco without a trip with Cory at Off the Hook Adventures.

We took a trip to Marco Island in the off-season and we were looking for things to do and came across Off the Hook Adventures and thought - why not! Best decision ever!! Corey was AWESOME and he even took pictures of us in the water so we had family pictures. We found over 50 sand dollars and he even told us which ones were 'dead'. That way we didn't have smelly shells in our bag. We saw lots of manatee and dolphins and different birds; however, we didn't see any sea turtles and that's what I was really hoping to see. We loved this trip so much that we're even going back next year to get married!!!! Hopefully we can get Corey again and he can officiate our ceremony on the private shelling island :) I highly recommend booking this 2 hour or 4 hour tour, you won't be disappointed. (side note...we visited in June 2016, I'm just a little late in my review.)

This is the perfect custom trip for young and old (toddlers to my 70yr old parents) Corey does a great job of helping everyone have a safe and comfortable adventure. Boarding at Caxambas Park and Marina is convenient and easy. Because you usually have the boat to yourselves, Corey can customize your trip to maximize your value!
