Pure Florida’s Fort Myers location will present Bark on the Ark from 8 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6. In honor of International Homeless Animals Day (August 20), Pure Florida will host two volunteers from the Gulf Coast Humane Society and an adoptable dog onboard. Guests will have the opportunity to bring their dogs aboard the M/V Edison Explorer for a sightseeing river cruise to Picnic Island, an island located between Sanibel and Pine Island that exhibits the natural beauty of Southwest Florida.
Passengers can enjoy a peaceful cruise along the Caloosahatchee River followed by a playful time on the island, socializing with man’s best friend. During the excursion, dogs and owners can run, swim and play catch while enjoying the sunshine, water, sand and fresh air. While Pure Florida cannot guarantee animal sightings in the wild, potential wildlife sightings include dolphins, eagles, manatee, native birds and more.
Water, Frisbees and dog treats are included for the canines. Human treats, such as soda, wine and beer will also be available for purchase. The M/V Edison Explorer departs from The Marina at Edison Ford, located at 2360 W. First St. in Fort Myers.
Registration for the tour is $44 per person. Reservations are required as room is limited to 25 passengers and their pets. All dogs that can follow basic commands are welcome. For more information or to book your ticket, call 239-919-2965.
