Pet Parents and their dog are invited to cruise to Keewaydin Island

NAPLES, Fla. (October 7, 2020) – Pure Florida brings back Bark on the Ark, a dog friendly cruise from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, November 21 aboard the M/V Edison Explorer which departs from Tin City, located at 1200 Fifth Ave. S., Naples.  Additional Bark on the Ark events are scheduled for the third Saturday of each month through April 2021. Guests will have the opportunity to bring their dogs for a sightseeing eco cruise along Naples Bay to Keewaydin Island.

At Keewaydin Island, passengers will enjoy time to play with their happy hounds. During the excursion, pet parents and their dogs can run, swim and play catch while enjoying the sunshine, water, sand and fresh air. Water, tennis balls, waste bags and healthy dog treats are included for the canines. Dogs must be kept on a leash at Keewaydin Island. Guests may bring their own small cooler bag with drinks and snacks along with towels for themselves and their puppy pals.

While Pure Florida cannot guarantee animal sightings in the wild, the captain will alert passengers to wildlife such as dolphins, eagles, manatee, native birds and more. Registration for the tour is $49 per person which includes one dog per ticket. Gift Certificates and discounted promotions are not redeemable for this specialty cruise.  For the safety and comfort of passengers one handler per dog is required.  Reservations are required as space is limited to 24 passengers and their pets to allow for social distancing on board. Well trained, friendly dogs that can follow basic commands are welcome. The M/V Edison Explorer is an open-air vessel, cleaned and sanitized for your safety and ours.  For more information or to make reservations, call (239) 263-4949 or book online at
