New Wave Eco Charters

Captiva Drive
Captiva FL, United States

New Wave Eco Charters offers exclusive sightseeing, shelling, and kayaking charters and tours in the Captiva area, in Florida. Daily eco-based charters to the most beautiful areas of Captiva Island will introduce you to exquisite wildlife and birdlife that can only be seen in books and movies.

The charters are led by marine naturalist Stephen Plein and local award winning marine biologist and shell expert Stefanie Wolf. Together, they provide a fresh spin on traditional shelling and sightseeing. You will be treated to a day of thrills and education both environmentally and historically.

New Wave Eco Charters can take you on a sightseeing or kayaking charter to the upper island chain of Pine Island Sound where you can see birds like the Great Eagle, Osprey, White Pelicans, Anhingas, Roseate Spoonbill, Reddish Egret, and more. There are also Dolphins, Manatees, Alligators, Gopher Tortoises, and more.

The kayaks are normally rented to smaller groups as Captain Stephen likes to provide a personalized service and be able to attend to each guest.

Alternatively, you can book a weekend shelling trip exploring the beaches of Captiva and collecting shells. Please note, New Wave Eco Tours fight to conserve the nature, the ocean, and its inhabitants, and never allow live shells to be collected. Rather, they are released back into the ocean so they can continue living.

Stefanie will teach you all about the shells and point out exactly which ones you have found. They can be Angel Wings, Sunray Venus, Jewelboxes, Conchs, Sharks Eyes, Sand Dollars, and many more.

Cruises and shelling adventures will take place aboard a 24-foot Mako center console originally built in 1991 and restored in 2017. It is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha Four Stroke engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. This vessel has a wide T-top that will provide plenty of shade in the hot Floridian sun, snorkeling equipment, a GPS, safety equipment and a capacity for 6 guests.
