Miss Daisy Boat Tours

Come join us aboard the Miss Daisy pontoon boat for a two hour scenic tour along the Pithlaschascotee River (Cotee) in beautiful New Port Richey!

From the helm of the Miss Daisy II, a 40-foot pontoon boat, Capt. Ray Kelly sees what others don’t in Pasco County: a hidden paradise.

Your tour will then go out to the Gulf of Mexico where you will see famous mansions including the home of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, the unique stilt homes along the coast -and even spy on dolphins frolicking along with the other native sea life and shorebirds galore!

Captain Ray Kelly shares the legend and lore of the area including the story of how New Port Richey was poised to be the “Hollywood of the East,” with Thomas Meighan and silent film stars creating a mecca back in the 1920s.

Enjoy a meal before or after your tour at Gill Dawg’s or at any number of restaurants in downtown New Port Richey. You may also bring your own snacks, refreshments, or libations in your own coolers on board.  There is a private toilet on the Miss Daisy II.

Kelly, who served in the Navy for four years, has been a licensed captain for 15+ years and has owned his boat tour business for over 14 years. The Miss Daisy II docks at the Gill Dawg Marina in Port Richey.
