Fishing With Capt. Terry Pitz

Eco-Tours in the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge

terry pitz 4Capt. Terry is one of the few guides that has been issued a Special Use Permit to guide in the Refuge. He has great respect and knowledge of the marine, birds and wildlife of the area. Let him take you on a quiet and relaxing ECO-tour of the refuge and the surrounding area. Come see manatees, dolphins, great herons, pelicans, egrets, eagles and much more. The refuge has no wake zones and no motorized areas, which keeps the fishing pressure down. Please let the Captain know if you are interested in going into the "Ding" for fishing or for an ECO tour.

All prices are for one to three people.
