We have had truly amazing weather here in Southwest Florida for boat tours and yacht charters the week before Christmas! We welcomed a family aboard our vessel, the "Reel Keel" in Fort Myers for our three night Platinum package. We moved the yacht south, from Englewood, Florida and fell in love with historic downtown Fort Myers all decorated for Christmas. Historic Fort Myers a scenic town with several blocks of pubs, outdoor restaurants with live entertainment complete with a Broadway style theatre! There's much to see and do in downtown Fort Myers and it's an easy trip from Punta Gorda, North Port, Cape Coral or Port Charlotte - especially in our super stretch limousine.
The next night, we moved the yacht to beautiful Captiva Island and visited the South Seas Resort. Captiva Island is definitely one of the most beautiful islands to visit on a yacht charter. Another popular resort people like to experience by water is "Tween Waters Resort. This island has several postcard worthy white sand beaches with clear turquoise water. With Gulf Island Tours, you can visit these amazing resorts for a few hours or even for a few days. A yacht charter vacation is unlike any other in that you can see many destinations and if one particular spot isn't "your kind of place" you will get to enjoy a very scenic ride to another island.
The third night, we visited Gasparilla Island and Boca Grande at Uncle Henry's Marina after stopping on the way at Cabbage Key. Cabbage Key is another a beautiful Florida island on the Gulf's Intracoastal Waterway that is only accessible by boat. Upon arrival, we immediately saw lots of fascinating wildlife! We watched in amazement as a Gopher turtle interacted with a Ribbon snake as we were walking from the boat to the restaurant. As the two creatures intersected, the turtle just trampled right over the harmless snake and kept on walking. We also encountered a huge iguana, a variety of lizards, and a plethora of exotic birds. The waitress there warned the kids in our group that one of the Snowy Egrets (named Floyd) was actually tame enough to take food off your dinner plate if left unattended. We left Cabbage Key that afternoon and on the way to Gasparilla Island, everyone was absolutely thrilled to see a pair of dolphins jumping and playing in our boat's wake.
The next morning, the family decided to rent a golf cart and tour beautiful Boca Grande for the day. Later that evening, after they had dinner in downtown Boca Grande at The Loose Cabosse, we dispatched our limousine to Uncle Henry's marina and sent our customers back to Fort Myers in our Chrysler Super Stretch limousine. That is one thing that sets Gulf Island Tours apart from our competition. We provide limousine transfers as part of our yacht charter packages so no matter where you embark or disembark, we can transfer your group by limo to and from the yacht from Sarasota to Fort Myers and every point in between.
