Sunrise & Sunset Tours

Sunrise Boat Tour

Up at the crack of dawn? Then get out early to experience the sunrise over St. George Island bridge that will send your worries away and set course for your vacation or special occasion. The tour is provided upon availability and is a three-hour photography-based charter.

Get out cameras and be ready to crane your necks on this outing across Apalachicola Bay! Chances are you will enjoy dolphins and calves at the mouth of the Apalachicola River, seagulls feeding on bait fish and see shrimp boats returning to shore through Government Cut. Plus, crabbers are starting their days collecting trap treasure, flanked by packs of pelicans.

This trip features St. Mark’s Island, Chipley Lake and Little St. Mark’s River and some surprise historical pass-throughs. Along the way, you will make a stop at a personal houseboat to climb onto its porch and experience the essence of centuries-old ways of living, fishing and hunting in nature.

Photographing during this time of morning is wonderfully tranquil and provides an ambience only found at this hour. Gliding out gracefully on a boat is the best way to encounter a sunrise’s escalating glow and snap pictures as a new day races over the horizon.

Sunset Boat Tour

Watch the stunning sunset from the water! This trip is designed to be more than just about fleeting moments of colorful and luminous twilight. It will be one on which you and yours will make special and lasting memories. Whether it’s the cap to a romantic evening, party with friends and family, or relaxing afternoon of reflection, sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico provide spectacular scenery and surround both casual viewers and professional photographers with peaceful calm and capture-quality richness.


Join Capt. Davidson for this late cruise on glass-like water as you circle St. George Island, Government Cut and Little St. George Island soaking in the last rays of light as the brightness of day turns into night’s haze. The photo op will come quickly and sink softly over Apalachicola Bay but as you lose its blistering blaze and the sunlight settles, you gain the mystical glowing of shrimp boats loosening reins on nets, ready to head out to sea.

The benefit of this leisurely cruise is being on a boat that is perfectly positioned so that you feel part of Mother Nature’s best show on Earth. So, bring a camera, sit back, or just aim, and enjoy its spectacle.
