New Wave specifies in sustainable charters and eco-tourism practices. We make it our personal mission to act as an usher to each and every client to lead them across the channel from the commonplace everyday and into the very unique, serene sense of wonder that our local estuary and its surrounding Gulf waters can bring. As a charter company we feel that if we have the privilege and the right to use our local waters for enjoyment, for fun, and in our case to make a living from it, then we have an even greater responsibility to care for and nourish it.  The Hawaiians have a word for this: Kuleana.  Or simply put, a marriage between right and responsibility.  It is our responsibility as daily water-dwellers to act as stewards of the sea in order to help eliminate the mental disconnect that the hustle-and-bustle that the inevitable pace of life inflicts upon us.  It is our goal to help you unwind, unplug, and unearth the yearning for the natural world that you've been longing for.  This is New Wave.  This is us.
