Approaching Temple Mound at Emerson Point

Typical Day

Join us in the grass flats of Sarasota Bay at Ken Thompson Park. We will collect, identify and release marine animals. The grass flats are the nursery of the Gulf of Mexico, everything we catch is small and safe. Typical tour is 2-hours or so (depending on your kids interest level) and includes your own professional Master Naturalist Guide and all equipment needed for a real Florida adventure. Dip Net tours are best scheduled at low tide, so times may vary.
