SUPPORT THE CHILDREN
What We Do
We coordinate a FREE fun day on the water for kids with special needs and illnesses with professional captains/crews/businesses that provide: fishing charters, sailing excursions, parasailing rides, dolphin cruises and pirate cruises. Most events have space for the parents and sometimes a sibling or two to tag along. All activities are free of charge. Fishing charters have limited mates/captains and will give cater the fishing trip to the kids only.
We have different activities at many different beach locations and marinas in St. Pete Beach, Orange Beach, Perdido Key, Pensacola Beach, Destin, Ft. Walton Beach, and Key Largo, Florida.
Boats have maximum seating capacities so we will need to schedule each person in order to give you a smooth experience and to provide a passenger manifest to the captain. Seats are first-come-first-served based on date of reservation. We will begin calling in August so REGISTER NOW on the CONTACT PAGE.
11th ANNUAL CAPTAINS FOR KIDS
IMPORTANT THIS YEAR
We will be having this years event on Saturday, September 9th. We will be able to schedule large families of four or more for most dolphin cruises/sailing excursions only. The fishing trips and parasailing are a maximum of 2-4 people per party depending on the size of the boat. The available seats on the PIRATE CRUISE (when available) are extremely limited (4-5 max) because of availability. We will give priority to those who have not been able to take a pirate cruise before. Some fishing trips last one hour and some will last more than four hours. Let us know your preference. We will only be able to provide one activity per family. Weather cancellations are common for fishing charters and parasailing due to high winds and rough seas. We will make a weather call on these events 2-3 days prior to the event. We will normally not cancel dolphin cruises until the day before the event unless a pending tropical storm. We will start scheduling in late-August.
We will start scheduling for each event/charter in late August. Feel free to message us with questions and concerns at any time. If you would like to reserve a spot early, you can leave your information on our contact page. Also, please help us spread the word to your friends and organizations that support kids with special needs and illnesses. Hope to see you there.
