To make the joys of the sea accessible to all


Our Goal, Vision & Commitment

'Seas the Moment'

Donate to our Cause

Who we are?

We are family members and friends of Mary Anne Hedrick, the founder of Access the Sea. We are committed to carrying on Mary Anne's legacy to spread her joy of the sea to others in South Florida.

Your Board,

Matt Hedrick, Keith Hedrick, Oksana Hedrick, Natalie Sharp, Ryan Gebauer, Rob Bereolos

What do we do?

We take people with disabilities out on the beautiful intracoastal waterways for a 4-hour boat trip with fishing included. Access the Sea uses a 50-ft handicapped accessible catamaran captained by Rich Brochu (founder of the Florida Fishing Academy) and his crew from Riviera Beach Marina.

I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free
human being with an independent will.
