Captain Buddy Thornton is a fourth generation Naples native. Raised on the Gulf Buddy has spent his life navigating the beautiful waterways of south west Florida. Aboard this 27ft. pontoon boat you will be able to B.Y.O.B, sit back and enjoy the tropical scenery, sugar sand beaches, dolphins, manatees and other natural wonders Naples has to offer. Knowledgeable in the local flora, fauna, attractions and hideaways, Buddy will build your tour around your interests. If you would like to see the Domes of Cape Romano, party on Keewaydin, or just cruise the waterways tailed by dolphins playing in the surf this is your charter to do it.
