-We firmly believe we are here to “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”

The sea provides us with so much sustenance, but it’s not a bottomless pantry. Our crew knows how important it is to be good stewards of this treasure and strives to abide by this philosophy with every outing.  The marine habitat and the creatures that live there need our help minimizing garbage and pollution that we are putting into our water ways.  By taking care of this, we are taking care of them.  The crew of the Sea Hare sets out on every adventure determined to do just that.

-Our Story

Salty Water Tours started as a dream and turned into a reality. We started as a Private Customized boat tours.  We had turned away a lot of guests that had more than 6 guests.  We decided to purchase a bigger vessel to fill those needs.   With love of the sea and animals, we wanted to create an educational Eco-Friendly tour that can be shared with Friends and Family.  The beautiful pristine waters and beaches in the St. Petersburg area is captivating.  We wanted others to join us to take in unique beauty that this area has to offer.  Come join us for your custom escape.
