     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.  The Bird Dog Boat program was started by re-engineering the Cedar
     Key clam boat design to an adaptive boat design.  Now you can book a charter from our
     home port and enjoy a great day of fishing or eco adventuring.  Then kick back for a bowl
     of Cedar Key clams.

     Located in central Florida, Leesburg, FL is close to Orlando, FL and surrounding areas.
 We will be departing from Venetian Park for a tour of Harris Lake.  This venue is perfect
     for large power chairs.  The park area is relaxing, open and not crowded.  During a recent
     voyage, we watched an osprey with a fairly large fish in its claws, flying across our bow.

     Restaurant we recommend:
     Oakwood Smokehouse and Grill (BBQ), Leesburg, FL




     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!

     Restaurant in area we recommend:
     Rusty Bellies Waterfront Grill, Tarpon Springs, FL


     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.

     Restaurant in area we recommend:
     Tiki Docks River Bar & Grill, Riverview, FL


     Get ready for some good ole Florida adventure.  Mary's Fish Camp was established in
     1946 and still holds all the charm and ambience 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. 

     Restaurant in area we recommend:
     Bayport Inn Seafood Restaurant, Bayport, FL


     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!
