Gibby Conrad, your Captain/Guide, is a pioneer of eco tourism in the Apalachicola Estuary and a lifelong student of Gulf Coast maritime history. After conducting tours on the Apalachicola River and Bay from 1997-2007, he moved to Tallahassee and changed his focus to other ecosystems in the Panhandle. After developing a guide to outdoor activities around the Capital, he became a museum educator teaching history and natural science. He is now back on the river that he knows so well, ready to share his knowledge and love of the estuary with his customers.

The boat that will transport you on your adventure in the river delta is a Beachcat 23 named Swamp Owl. The boat is designed for a comfortable, stable ride and is equipped for your comfort and convenience with a sun cover, cushioned seats, and enclosed head. Keep in mind that you will be outside, so come prepared with appropriate clothing and sunscreen. Because the trips are on protected inland waters, motion sickness should not be a concern.
