The Crew of Paradise Boat Tours has a few simple goals for you while on board the Passenger Vessel Inlet Explorer:
1. We want to show a little piece of our paradise through the local wildlife
2. We want you to enjoy yourselves and relax - you are on vacation
3. We want you to have a safe, memorable trip
Below you will meet the people that make this possible.
Captain Sherman Baldwin
He started boating over 46 years ago as a child on Cape Cod Massachusetts. He has boated around the world but his favorite place has been Southwest Florida. It all started in 1984 where he discovered his love for the dolphins in Sarasota Bay while sailing the bay with his children. There is probably nobody else who observes the dolphins of SW Florida on a daily basis more than Captain Sherman. As a result, Paradise Boat Tours sees Dolphins 95% of all tours. And we don't mean we see dolphins from afar. We see dolphins up close and personal.
Captain Sherman is a Master Captain and a graduate from New England Maritime. He has an impeccable record of safety. Not only are his tours informative but also very entertaining.
