    Get ready for some good ole Florida adventure.  Mary's Fish Camp was established in
    1946 and still holds all the charm and ambiance of a genuine Florida fish camp.  Our
     journey will take us upriver to Mud River Springs where we will try our luck fishing with
     creek chubs.  Then we'll go fishing at the mouth of the Weeki Wachee River and the
     Gulf of Mexico.  Later back at camp, there will be plenty of stories to hear.  So relax and
     take in some local Florida flavor.




     We'll be launching from Anclote River Park located fifteen minutes away from the
     historic sponge docks at Tarpon 
Springs.  This area is great for fishing or just enjoying
     the beautiful sites on the Anclote River.  Wow, look at that fishing trawler, really neat.
     A visit from our dolphin
 friends wouldn't be a surprise.  Enjoy a pleasant sea breeze
     aboard Bird Dog Boats at an iconic destination in Florida.  After your cruise on the
     river you will be ready for a bite in Tarpon Springs.  Don't forget the Baklava!




     This venue is designed for large power wheelchairs and a one overnight stay.
     Check in and relax at Safety Harbor Resort & Spa
.  Check out the local sights and
     parks.  Then get ready to roll down to the Safety Harbor Marina where Bird Dog Boats
     will be waiting for embarking.  Our tour will take us into Old 
Tampa Bay, teaming with
     dolphins, pelicans and many other varieties of wildlife.  
Is it time for lunch back at the
     harbor?  The Grouper Picatta sounds good!    




     We are pleased to announce our new partnership with Guy Harvey Camp Mack  

     on Lake Kissimmee near Lake Wales, FL.  This venue offers a world class fresh  
     water fishing experience.  We will be fishing for speckled perch when they bed 
     during the full moon periods.  Enjoy an evening of fellowship around the camp fire
     as you listen to fish stories and share yours too!  Guy Harvey Fishing Lodge features
     accessible rooms with roll-in showers and accessible parking outside the rooms.





     Cedar Key is our premier venue and features a dedicated embarking dock made possible
     by a partnership program between Bird Dog Boats and University of Florida's Nature Coast
     Biological Station, UF-IFAS.  The concept of our adaptive program was born in Cedar Key.  
     The boat was designed and built in Chiefland, FL in Levy county.  Now you can book a
     a charter from our home port and enjoy a great day of fishing or eco adventuring.  Then
     kick back for a delicious bowl of Cedar Key clams.  


     Not too far south of Tampa, E.G. Simmons Park is a hidden jewel located in Ruskin,
     FL.  Our itinerary starts out in Tampa Bay where we will have a unique vista of both
     the Tampa skyline and the St. Petersburg skyline.  But soon we will be motoring up
     the Little Manatee River, taking in sites and enjoying the wildlife.  Maybe we'll try
     our luck at a sheepshead or snook among the mangroves at Devil's Elbow.  Now
     sit back and relax as we cruise back across Tampa Bay.
