SaltwaterNow:  Boat and Captain
USCG Licensed Captain Tony Murray is a biologist (BS from FSU) by training and offers an insightful eco-tour and fishing adventure.  He provides support for conservation and research efforts and also a wide variety of educational and fishing opportunities. 
The 26' Twin Vee Power Catamaran with Twin 150 Suzukis center console runs both shallow and deep water.  She offers an exceptional ride; she can run at 40 kts (plus) and the 2007 twin four stroke motors are quiet, reliable and environmentally sound.

Capt. Tony Murray - I'm the older one
The waters that I traversed in the last year in the Apalachee Cat have ranged well beyond our local St. Marks River area into our off shore waters of Apalachee Bay.  My range within our immediate area has included southerly 90 miles to Horseshoe Beach and westerly 90 miles to Cape San Blas.  I also trailered the Apalachee Cat down to the Keys for an enjoyable week in the Winter. 
Always an Experience!
