Adventures in Paradise

Spring Break is over and Easter is coming. If you are hunting for ways to fill your time with pure family fun, Pure Naples offers Adventures in Paradise to fill your basket!

Pure Naples’ newest adventure is “kid friendly” and “adult friendly” too! It’s a three-hour excursion exploring all that is the Northern Ten Thousand Islands of Southwest Florida. Not only do we see dolphins and pelicans in this area, but also deer, wild boar, and a wide variety of osprey and other sea birds. Step on board our M/V Naples Explorer with our naturalist who gives you information about what survives in this amazing area. Kids are given a scavenger hunt sheet to fill in with what they see. You will be taken ashore at Keewaydin Island to explore and gather from the abundance of beautiful shells there. Ask our naturalist why they collect here. This excursion is three hours long so bring a sun hat, sunglasses, water and snacks. Binoculars would be a good idea too – and your camera!

If you like more of a buzz, then Jet Boat Odin will fill your basket! This bright red, New Zealand designed, US certified – and built – Jet Boat, with its Hamilton jet propulsion, provides a one hour thrill and eco cruise that gives you a bit of the “New Zealand experience” right here in Southwest Florida. Skim out over the waters of Naples Bay at speeds of 30 M.P.H., fish tailing to experience the dexterity of this amazing ride. The captain will signal with a raised hand, and the next thing you know you are doing an exhilarating 360-degree “Kiwi Spin.” You just might catch a bit of spray!

Pure Naples can also give you the opportunity to experience the freedom that a Jet Ski provides. You have the choice of a guided tour to explore the backwaters and mangrove areas of Naples Bay or go it alone to do your own thing. Head out into the gulf to the wide-open spaces or stop at Keewaydin Island to explore the beaches and pick up a few shells that are scattered along the shoreline.

If “exhilaration” is not a part of your vocabulary, Pure Naples can provide you with a Boat Rental to laze your way down the Gordon River. Take a picnic lunch – or early dinner – and rest on the beach to people watch. Or in the evening, see the early beginnings of a sunset – we do require all vessels to be back at Tin City before sunset, however.

Also, in the months of April and May, Pure Naples will be running a new Facebook Photo contest. Submission is easy, visit www.PureNaples.com/Contest, fill out the form, upload a favorite photo of you, your family or friends that captures a water-related adventure or thrill you’ve experienced. Any image of water-related adventures and thrills will work, such as:

  • exploring on a boat
  • canoeing through a cave
  • jet skiing
  • surfing
  • shelling
  • water skiing
  • whitewater rafting
  • swimming with dolphins
