What you'll do

We will start with a boat ride from Boca Grande across Charlotte Harbor to Cabbage Key for breakfast. You will enjoy a hot breakfast served on the screened-in porch of the popular restaurant overlooking Pine Island Sound. After breakfast explore the island's guided walking trail, climb the historic water tower or visit with Michelangelo, the resident gopher tortoise. From there we will take a boat ride to Cayo Costa, an island and state park only accessible by boat. You will enjoy a secluded beach, refreshing swim and world class shelling. We will end the tour with more boating and exploration of Boca Grande Pass, Charlotte Harbor and Pine Island Sound where you will see dolphin, manatees, historic lighthouses and take in a bit of history of the area.

Roger

I am a Coast Guard certified Captain with over 25 years of boating, fishing and island hopping experience in Boca Grande, Florida. I am intimately familiar with the waters, nature, flora, fauna and surrounding islands including Cayo Costa, Cabbage Key, Pine Island, Useppa and more. I will ensure tours that get you away from the crowds and provide unique experiences that include paddle boarding, world class shelling on secluded beaches, fun island hopping to restaurants and bars by boat and nature hikes. We will also talk history! Think Calusa Indians, famous pirates and turn-of- the century hotels owned by magnates of a bygone era. Of course swimming, beach chairs and shaded umbrellas are available if you just want to relax?!?
