Yacht Charter Englewood FL
5 of 5 starsReviewed January 24, 2014 NEW

On a recent vacation to Florida's southwest coast we decided to charter Gulf Island Tours' large yacht for our family. We had a marvellous time out on the water. Stuart and Angela had prepared well for the trip. All we needed to do was step outside in the morning and we were picked up in a white stretch limo that the five kids went crazy over, especially since we had kept it a surprise for them. The yacht was ready to go when we arrived and we spent a leisurely day out on the water, with stops for the kids to swim and explore beaches. Captain Stuart took us to a restaurant on Cabbage Key that everyone loved - a hidden gem on a tiny island. It was one of those days where everyone just went "Aaaaah....." The charter was fabulous and well worth the money - thank you Stuart and Angela. We hope to return next year.

Visit Gasparilla Island!
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014 NEW TripAdvisor Report

This past December, our family decided to "not do a traditional Christmas" and take a much needed family vacation to visit Gasparilla Island in Florida. We looked at several other areas in South West Florida such as Fort Myers, Captiva & Sanibel Islands but then decided on a secluded beach cottage located on Don Pedro Island which is just north of Gasparilla Island. The neat thing about it was the island could only be accessed by boat so we began searching the web for boat rentals and private boat charters and fortunately found Gulf Island Tours. It seemed the business was kind of a "one stop shop" for the adventurous trip we were planning. We were flying into Fort Myers from Raleigh Durham and had discussed renting a car until my son noticed Gulf Island Tours offered limousine service also. I called and spoke with Angie and she helped us plan our visit to Gasparilla Island from that point on.

We were treated like royalty from the moment we landed in Fort Myers!  Upon arrival, it was easy to spot Gulf Island Tours gorgeous white stretch limousine. Our beach house came with a dock and Gulf Island Tours had all of our needs handled. On the way, we stopped at the grocery store to stock our beach cottage. We had my two sons, their girlfriends, my husband and I so we really loaded the limousine up with supplies for the week. We were definitely glad we hadn't tried to rent a car! The limo took us to Chadwick Cove in Englewood Florida where we boarded the double decker H2O Limo for our ride over Don Pedro Island. At that point, we also selected which of their rental boats we wanted to use for the week and my husband and son followed behind the pontoon boat to the dock right in front of the rental house. The beach house was great (rented through VRBO!)  We loved the seclusion of Don Pedro Island and were glad we chose to visit Gasparilla Island over Captiva or Sanibel Island. We also rented a golf cart and explored the tropical paradise but the boat rental was the most fun we have had on a vacation in a long, long time!. The best way to visit Gasparilla Island is definitely by boat! The mangroves were full of exotic birds and we also got to see plenty of manatees and dolphins. My husband and Captain Stuart were instant buddies and the very next day, he took my husband and two sons out to show them the best fishing holes for no extra charge! We got the same great service on our return back to the "real world" (though we were all definitely sad we had to leave!)

We would definitely recommend Gulf Island Tours to our family and friends or to anyone looking for an extra special vacation in South West Florida. This was truly a "worry free" vacation and we can't wait to visit Gasparilla Island again!

Yacht Charter Englewood FL

At Gulf Island Tours, we love giving our snowbird pals from up north a real break from the cold with a yacht charter in Englewood Florida complete with roundtrip limousine service.  We have had an unseasonably warm winter and had the great pleasure yesterday to take a family from Canada on a yacht charter from englewood, FL.  We picked them up this morning at 8:15 in our Chrysler 300 Super Stretch Limousine in North Port and started their vacation off right!  It was a short limo ride from North Port to Englewood to Chadwick's Cove Marina.  We boarded our guests around 9:00 am and began our Gulf of Mexico Island hopping yacht charter.
The boat charter left Englewood FL and stopped first at beautiful Gasparilla Pass.  There, the family took our motorized dinghy to the gorgeous beach to relax and swim.  A few hours later, we journeyed thru the calm Gulf of Mexico Intercoastal waterway alongside Boca Grande all the way to Cabbage Key.  Along the way, our guests were delighted to see numerous pods of dolphins swimming and jumping in both the bow and the stern wakes.  They were so close today you could almost reach out and touch them!  A yacht charter from Englewood  Florida to Cabbage Key in the winter tends to be loaded with dolphins and birds so is nearly always an exciting wildlife journey!
Upon arrival to Cabbage Key, Captain Stuart radioed in with his VHF radio a reservation for our group at the restaurant.  They had a great time there, seeing Gopher turtles, Cranes, Blue Herons, various lizards and other wildlife as they sat on the outdoor veranda and had their dinner.  They enjoyed crab legs, crab cakes and jumbo Gulf shrimp.  Everyone was delighted with the food and scenery and a few hours later, they boarded our vessel for our boat charter back to Englewood, Florida. 
After the sunset, they disembarked  the yacht for their limousine ride from Englewood  back to their vacation home in North Port!  We are told other yacht charters in Englewood FL are not comparable to our service simply because we provide free limousine transfers for all of our yacht charters!  Remember to bookmark for easy access to our website and blog pages!  Book your Yacht Charter with Gulf Island Tours and we'll send our Chrysler super stretch limousine for you and your group within a 60 mile radius of Englewood, FL
