We are coming up on the last stretch of summer time. Kids are home. It is hot and humid. Boredom is setting in. PURE NAPLES can help you out with the “what to do today” question. PURE NAPLES offers many options to experience the best parts of this season in Florida. Whether you are visiting Naples or are a full-time resident, take advantage of some of the fun activities available from our Tin City waterfront ticket office.
Kids get a real thrill with the 1.5 hour sightseeing and dolphin watch cruise on the M/V Double Sunshine. Our captain and crew keep a lookout for our water friends and when one is spotted, they will call out “Dolphins folks, off of the starboard / port side.” The dolphin love playing in the wake that this vessel makes and will often provide a good show for the kids. We have plenty of refreshments to purchase on board too, in case something got left behind. Cruising down the Gordon River, Naples Bay and out into the Gulf of Mexico, the sea breeze is sure to keep you cool.
There have been lots of happy times spent on the jet skis with mom or dad sitting behind. We do adhere to the USCG age limit for operating one of our Yamaha Skis, but with a driver’s license and a few instructions, anyone over the age of 18 can drive their own. Stop in at Keewaydin Island and go ashore for some shelling or a swim. There are shells of all types scattered along the shoreline for the kids to collect.
Our latest attraction in Naples is the eco cruise, enjoyed from the deck of the M/V Naples Explorer. This is a three-hour tour exploring all of the flora and fauna of the upper 10,000 Islands and Greater Everglades area. Egrets! Bald Eagles! Dolphins! And so much more! Our Certified Naturalist on board will explain all about the creatures in this area and the unique eco system that forms the islands. We include a nature hunt quiz for the kids to fill in with what they spot along the way. Going ashore at Keewaydin Island will provide an opportunity for a swim and some shelling – customary Pure Naples shelling bags are supplied.
While down at Tin City, ask about our jet boat – ODIN. Originally designed in New Zealand, this experience gives a very exciting trip including 360 degree spins, fishtailing through the backwaters and getting close up and personal to all that there is to see along the way. Propelled by New Zealand Hamilton jets, this eco safe vessel has the agility that no other vessel can provide – you may just get little spray on you!
