Salt & Vinegar
Stung by a jellyfish? No problem! Carry small packets of vinegar in your beach bag to use in case of a sting. It will soothe your skin and the party won’t be over.

an adventure on the peace river
The majestic Peace River separates Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda and offers amazing scenery with hundreds of plant and animal species to discover. Spend a day on the river with Peace River Charters in an airboat, a canoe, or on horseback, and then head over to one of the neighboring cities to continue the adventure!
Peace River Charters’ airboat tour gives you the opportunity to speed down over 20 miles of river, taking in the wildlife, reptiles, and incredible scenery. This family-oriented adventure is fun, exciting, and educational.
SWAMP BUGGY RIDES
You can also explore the Peace River scenery from a 12-foot vantage point. Swamp buggies’ huge tires and elevated platforms allow them to weave and wind through heavy mud, uneven terrain, thick brush, and shallow water passages so you'll get to see and experience it all! If it sounds a bit extreme, it is! The swamp buggies are safe and comfortable. Plus an experienced guide will be there at every turn.
CANOE RENTALS & EXCURSIONS
One of the Peace River’s most popular activities is canoeing. Peace River Charters offers 8-mile (half day)
excursions. Enjoy a fast-paced airboat ride up the river and then paddle back downstream with the relaxed current. If you’re feeling more ambitious, canoe rentals are also available without airboat transport.
Horseback trail rides are another great way to explore the river for riders of all ages and experience levels. Embark on a wilderness trail alongside the water and explore the Florida cypress hammocks on horseback! You will be accompanied by a Florida native guide who will provide your group with a personalized experience.
