When you want to see all the beautiful "postcard worthy" barrier islands around Southwest Florida select a Gulf boat rental from Gulf Island Tours. We now have three Gulf boat rental options to choose from. We have a 19 foot Carolina Skiff with a Suzuki 70 horsepower motor perfect for a small group of family and friends. Another good Gulf boat rental is our 20 foot wider bodied Sundance Skiff. It has a 115 Yamaha and a huge bimini top for good shaded areas from the Florida sun.
By far, our most popular boat rental is our 30 foot double decker pontoon party barge, the "H2O Limo." It can hold up to 12 passengers very comfortably. The great thing about this boat is it can practically beach itself and has a very shallow draft of two feet. You can find many boat rentals in the Florida Gulf, but this boat is truly one of a kind with widescreen flat TV's, a bathroom/changing area, a small kitchen and weber grill, and plenty of padded couches for your complete comfort.
Today, we took a small group out for a short sunset cruise. We departed from Laishley's Marina around 6:30 and rode around in Fisherman's Village for a little while, waiting for what many visitors and locals alike agree is the best part of the day - the magnificent Florida Gulf sunset! Today was spectacular day for a Gulf boat rental since the clouds began disappearing towards the late afternoon, creating a dramatic pink and purple sunset along the horizon. Afterwards, we cruised back into Laishley's Marina and our group disembarked and headed for Dean's South of the Border at our suggestion.
In our opinion, a Gulf boat rental is the only way to truly see and appreciate all that Punta Gorda and Charlotte Harbor have to offer. Bookmark our page at www.GulfIslandTours.com for easy access to our website.
Limousine service Cape Coral provided throughout Charlotte, Lee, and Sarasota County by Gulf Island Tours. Check out our super stretch Chrysler 300 limousine complete with two flatscreen DVD's, colorful disco lights, mirrored ceilings, and phenomenal sound system for your next special event.
Other Cape Coral limo services do not compare. We offer limo tours from Laishley's Park and Marina in Punta Gorda to the Big M Casino in Fort Myers until the wee hours! Plan your next party with Gulf Island Tours and it will be a big hit. Holiday parties with family and friends will be more than memorable in Cape Coral and Fort Myers in our Chrysler 300 Super Stretch limo! Hit all the great clubs or have a great Bachelor or Bachelorette party this holiday season.
We had a great family reunion on Gulf Island Tour's boat, the " H2O Limo" and decided to visit Cayo Costa for this full day trip. We met up at Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda and had a great time exploring the neat shops and then grabbed some sandwiches to go from Harpoon Harry's. Captain Stuart met up with his brother from Clearwater, Florida, who is also a boat Captain and we fueled up the boat and got ice there at Fisherman's Village for our visit to Cayo Costa. We had a wonderful trip out to Gasparilla Island fishing at the Boca Grande pass. It is always amazing to see manatees and pods of dolphins and all the wildlife brimming around Cayo Costa State Park. When you visit Cayo Costa, you can expect it to look like the perfect "tropic island nest" like where "Gilligan's Island" could have been filmed. The water clarity and color were a bit churned up because the remnants of hurricane Karen were still active in the Gulf of Mexico (though far away from us in South West Florida.) It was still a beautiful, sunny day and the water was warm and calm plus the fishing and wildlife viewing was phenomenal. Some Red Snapper, Drum and Spanish Mackeral were all among our catches of the day! Cruising the calm waters, we came upon a wonderful sandbar between Cayo Costa and Gasparilla Island and let our dogs run free! On this side of Cayo Costa, the wind was blocked and there was beautiful clear water all around the isolated sandbar along with many bird species. We found a lot of gorgeous seashells like whole sand dollars, whelks, and even a large live lightning conch. It's always so much fun to visit Cayo Costa!!! As we cruised back to Punta Gorda, the low lying remnant cumulous clouds made for a stunning Florida sunset! After retruning to Punta Gorda and had a wonderful late dinner at Dean's South of the Border restaurant, just a few steps from where the H2O Limo was docked that day at Laishley's Park & Marina. If you'd like to book a cruise on the H2O Limo to visit Cayo Costa and Boca Grande, bookmark www.GulfislandTours.com for quick and easy access to our Gulf Island Tours website!
