Bark on the Ark dog Cruises

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

Pure Florida’s popular Bark on the Ark, a dog friendly cruise is a monthly event for the whole family. The fun cruise takes guests and their pups aboard the M/V Edison Explorer for a sightseeing eco cruise along Naples Bay to Keewaydin Island. Cruises depart from Tin City, located at 1200 Fifth Ave. S., Naples.

At Keewaydin Island, enjoy time to play with their happy hounds.  Pet parents and their dogs can run, swim and play catch while enjoying the sunshine, water, sand and fresh air.  Each pup will receive their own doggy bag that includes water, a tennis ball, waste bags and healthy dog treats.  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.

Reservations are required and the cost is $59 per person (+tax) 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. Well trained, friendly dogs that can follow basic commands are welcome. The M/V Edison Explorer is an open-air vessel with room to move aboard the vessel.  For more information or to make reservations, call (239) 263-4949 or book online.  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.
