Meet Our Crew!
Captain Dave is a Florida native who has grown up fishing and boating the waters we tour. He has a passion for all things Tampa Bay. In 2016, Capt. Dave and his wife Nancy were inspired to start Latitudes Tours while on a vacation boat excursion; they knew they wanted to share their passion for wildlife and the Ruskin area with others.
First mate Jodie will delight you with her extensive knowledge – it’s a one-of-a-kind guided tour. You’ll see and hear about the unique marine life and animals of Florida’s Gulf Coast while learning a bit of history along the way!
Our Kayak Tours are led by our lifeguard, CPR, and first aid certified kayak guide, who will share extensive knowledge through an immersive experience as you glide through the water on your own kayak. You’ll take an up-close and personal journey through Tampa Bay Estuary, where you will see and interact with the animals and nature you encounter.
We are all dedicated to providing our guests with memorable tour experiences no matter the experience. Try our kayak tours, fishing, or our popular daily river eco-tours, where you’ll have a chance to see manatees, dolphins, and the abundant beauty and wildlife the Tampa Bay Estuary offers. Try our relaxing lunch cruise, a dinner sunset cruise, or book your very own private charter for weddings, birthdays, and more.
