We had an awesome boat tour in Englewood FL last night which included both a sunset tour and a dinner cruise! The H2O Limo is a very comfortable party boat that is located in Southwest Florida on the beautiful island of Manasota Key. We had a party of seven, a married couple with their two young kids, two grandmothers and a very special seven year old that was a late life child of one of the grandmothers. Their cruise began at Chadwick Cove Marina which is a lovely quaint "Old Florida" type of establishment. Our group commented that Chawick Cove felt like they had stepped back in time as they enjoyed all the beautiful tropical surroundings which included mangrove forests and giant Snook fish swimming beneath the boats.
After embarking on our boat tour, the H2O limo headed down the winding mangrove channels south towards Stump Pass Beach State Park. This was a day that nature didn't disappoint. The children and adults alike we all amazed when the pods of dolphins came out to play. They dolphins were jumping and playing in our boat wake and several even came up on the sides of the H2O Limo very close to the boat. During the cruise, we got to see an amazing variety of salt water birds such as Ospreys, Grey Herons, Terns, Snowy Egrets and Magnificiant Frigate birds. The mangroves were teaming with wildlife every where you turned!
About thirty minutes into our boat tour from Englewood, we arrived at Stump Pass Beach State Park. With dolphins still cresting a few feet offshore, we were also lucky enough to see a pair of sting rays gliding along in the clear teal green Gulf waters as the tide started rolling in! Less than an hour after arriving on Stump Pass beach, the toddlers in the group shed their clothes while alternating swimming in the calm waters in Lemon Bay with chasing the Herons and Egrets as they stood on shore trying to catch their dinner with the incoming tide.
The next hour was spent drying off while tour boat explored another mangrove channel while waiting for the sun to set. About fifteen minutes or so later, Captain Stuart took the H2O Limo out of Stump Pass and into the Gulf of Mexico so the group could watch the fiery sun as it descended into the sea. It was a stunning display that definitely didn't disappoint! After the sunset, we all decided it was time for dinner so we cruised back up the mangrove channel to a waterfront restaurant called Flounder's in Englewood, FL. There, we all enjoyed a wonderful meal outdoors by a firepit while listening to wonderful live entertainment. This is the great thing about a boat tour in Southwest Florida.....there are many casual restaurants you can drive your boat right up to for a delightfull dinner!
