What Will You See?

The Beautiful Gulf of Mexico

With Naples being close to Ft. Myers, Bonita Springs, Marco Island, Caloosahatchee River, Pine Island Sound, Estero Bay, and the open Gulf waters you have the possibility to see exciting wildlife such as dolphins, manatees, sting rays, sea turtles and much more.

With many of our waters being soft sand you are able to walk in most shallow areas that allow shelling and beach access that would otherwise be unavailable by car.

To top it off, being on the West Coast of Florida will give you and your group fantastic sunset views!



The boat will be run at $150 an hour plus fuel and tax (2 hour minimum). The fuel tank starts full and will be filled up upon completion of each charter to ensure you only pay for the fuel that your group used. Tax is 6.5%.


The rate for captains is $50 an hour.
Tips are not expected, but appreciated.


How long are the charters?

The charters are completely customizable and are available at 2-4-6-and 8-hour time ranges.

Can we extend our charter?

Every situation is different and while we would love to extend your charter if possible, it is up to the captain’s discretion and other bookings.

What if it rains?

Our weather policy is very clear and as follows: If the charter is postponed, cancelled, or ended early due to severe weather, or a mechanical problem you will receive a refund for any time you were not able to be on the boat (minus fuel). All cancellations due to weather will be made by a Toucan Yacht Charters captain and cannot be pre-determined based on a weather forecast. Severe Weather includes but is not limited to (thunder, lighting, high wind, rough seas, dense fog,) as many storms move quickly and are non- life threating it is possible to resume normal operation soon after some rain storms.

How many passengers are allowed on the boat?

Up to 10 passengers are allowed on the vessel, including children.

Are Pets Allowed?

Unfortunately, we cannot allow pets on the charter due to insurance.

What should we bring?

As this is a water ride, we recommend being prepared to get wet! Swimwear is highly suggested, along with sunscreen, sunglasses, towels, and goggles, to name a few. If you plan on stopping at a restaurant or bar, everyone should bring their IDs for any alcohol purchases.

Are we required to wear life jackets?

Adults are not required to wear life jackets, however if a child is 13 years of age or under, they will be required to wear a lifejacket the entire time. You must provide a well-fitting USCG jacket for them. Anyone who cannot swim will not be allowed in the water during the trip for safety.

How much does fuel cost?

The average rate for fuel is 20 gallons an hour while underway which comes out to be about $100 in today’s market. That is a high estimate as most of the time we are not fully underway for an entire hour.

What is your cancellation policy?

Our cancellation policy allows you to cancel up to 1 week (7 days) from the start of your charter date, and you will receive a refund minus 10% for processing. If you must cancel after that 7 days you will not be refunded, however we can move your reservation to a different available date–or you can keep a credit to be used for a future date good for up to one year from your original charter date.

Can we rent just the boat?

Unfortunately, the boat is not insured for rental and must be captained by a USCG licensed mariner with proper insurance.
