About the Captain

Ain't you glad... -- Capt. Andy Coleman


All aboard the Teche... a shallow draft 26'6" 'perfect dream' as boats go. With a Panga style hull and powered by a 225 Mercury Verado. The Teche offers a smooth, quiet, dry, comfortable and amply powered ride no matter the size of your group.


Hailing from Low Country South Carolina, Capt. Andy Coleman pilots the Panga Teche (named after a beloved lab). Capt. Andy was nostalgic at 11, crusty by 30 and has gotten worse since. He knows the bay, the river, the swamp and the history. He lies colorfully and will be delighted to show you things that make him happy.


Aboard, Join Capt. Andy... for a one-of-a- kind tour or stand-up paddle adventure, exploring the historic Choctawhatchee Bay and River Basin. Each trip is tailored to be as active or relaxing as your group desires. Visit pristine natural areas, some of our best kept local secrets and get a glimpse of nature in its purest form-- all in just a short drive from iconic 30A.
