There’s a lot to see and experience along Florida’s Forgotten Coast — but if you’re like many would-be visitors, you have no idea where to start. While a little research can reveal a wealth of opportunities, there’s something appealing about letting somebody else do all the hard work.
The solution? Schedule a charter tour. This approach should deliver the ultimate mix of excitement and relaxation, all while exposing you to the region’s best views and activities.
While there are several tour and charter companies situated along the Emerald and Forgotten Coasts, few allow you to customize your adventure quite like About Fun Charters. This trusted business has a strong reputation throughout Port St. Joe, enhanced by an unbreakable bond with this vibrant community.
About Fun owes its success to Captain Charlene Burke, who has spent her entire life on the Northern Gulf Coast. Her love of the water began at a young age, and today, she knows everything about the local waterways and habitats. She studied marine biology at the graduate level and continues to make new discoveries about local aquatic life with every trip she takes.
Licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard, Captain Charlene takes safety seriously. She wants all guests to feel comfortable and confident as they explore the Gulf.
As a family-friendly operation, About Fun offers charter trips for all types of explorers. Kids are often present for these journeys, although this is also a popular outing for young couples and retirees. Every journey is unique, as About Fun is big on customization.
Small and intimate, these trips are limited to just six participants. As a result, this will cost a bit more than the Emerald Coast’s larger tours. If you dread crowds, however, the smaller group will make your journey a lot more enjoyable. What’s more, the cost is reasonable when compared to other private charters in the area. Prices largely depend on how long you spend out on the water; trips begin at just two hours but can extend as long as eight.
A few of About Fun’s best excursions include the following:
Dolphin Photography Cruises
Do you dream of taking stunning photos of marine life? If you’ve unsuccessfully tried on your own, you should be well aware by now that you need to be in the right place at the right time. This is exactly the advantage that About Fun Charters will provide. With guidance from Captain Charlene, you should have no trouble spotting dolphins (or other aquatic creatures) and scoring awe-inspiring photos.
If you love snorkeling but need access to the best and most beautiful spots in Port St. Joe, you’re in luck: About Fun Charters offers interactive and highly educational snorkeling tours. You’ll need to bring your own snorkeling gear, but that’s where the work ends. From there, Captain Charlene will transport you to some truly astounding spots in St. Joe Bay.
During this fun expedition, you’ll have the opportunity to collect sea critters. When you’re done snorkeling, Captain Charlene will tell you all about these creatures before they’re released back into the bay.
Sometimes, the simplest sightseeing tours are also the most enjoyable. If you are in need of some serious rejuvenation, let Captain Charlene take you to Port St. Joe’s most charming spots. You can meander along the shore as you search for seashells and driftwood. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the Emerald Coast without the crowds.
If you crave both adventure and seclusion, you’ll love everything about your charter tour with Captain Charlene. Book a custom trip with About Fun Charters and get ready for a boating experience like no other.
-Reservations take place exclusively over the phone. When in doubt, it’s best to book well in advance, as Captain Charlene can only schedule so many trips.
-Be prepared to pack your own gear and food. Captain Charlene will take you to the area’s most scenic spots, but she doesn’t provide snorkeling or photography equipment — or lunch.
