Active Disabled Americans, Inc.

Key Largo, FL 33037

(305) 451-2102

Mission: “Captain Mick Nealey, an experienced Keys captain and guide, has launched Active Disabled Americans dba Tranquil Adventures, a charter , tour and cruise operation. What sets this venture apart from others, however, is that it is configured to cater to people with disabilities, rather than just let them tag along if they can somehow get aboard. Nealey, founder and operator of Active Disabled Americans and a victim of polio at age 2, considers himself able bodied even though he sometimes uses a wheelchair himself. ‘I knew from an early age that I’d never be able to run as fast as the other kids,’ he said, ‘but I was always stronger. My disability never stopped me from doing anything I wanted.’ While other companies are interested in just taking you out for a boat ride, our company is dedicated to helping you enjoy a tranquil time while creating a memorable moment. We modify equipment to help with fishing, snorkeling, diving or paddling a kayak.”
