4 Days of Play in and around Naples Your days in Collier County, otherwise known as the Paradise Coast, should be free of structure, schedules, and over-planning. However, to make sure you experience the best the region has to offer, we have done a little planning for you, with lots of time for relaxation and the great outdoors built in.

Let’s play! ➥ swflorida.travel

Everglades City - Marco Island - Naples

47


day 1: If you are flying in, pick up your rental car at the airport. Or even better, hire a car from NAPLES TRANSPORTATION & TOURS (nttep.com) to keep your vacation as stress-free as possible. Get settled in at NAPLES BAY RESORT (naplesbayresort.com), where you are perfectly poised for spending hours on the water, when you are not lounging around the lazy river pool complex or getting pampered in the spa, that is. Do dinner the quintessential Southwest Florida way–aboard a boat. The luxury yacht NAPLES PRINCESS (naplesprincesscruises.com) does a sunset dinner cruise with a sumptuous buffet. It is the perfect introductory overview of the town and its seascape from a new perspective.

★★★

The Naples Pier is the prime from-land spot for witnessing the sun’s dramatic curtain call. If you’re lucky, you may even see the elusive green flash.

★★★

insider tip:

day 2: Beach time! Head north to Vanderbilt Beach for some sun time, and go extreme with a parasail, WaveRunner, or banana boat adventure from MARCO ISLAND WATER SPORTS (marcoislandwatersports.com). It sets up shop there and also on Marco Island. Break for lunch at PINCHERS (pinchersusa.com) restaurant in the Tin City shopping complex downtown Naples. Feast on the freshest local seafood in a casual waterside setting. Finish your sea-themed day with a sunset cruise aboard MANATEE ECO-TOURS (see-manatees.com), a serene ride that takes you in search of Florida’s lovable gentle-giant marine mammals.

48

Everglades City - Marco Island - Naples

swflorida.travel


day 3: If the manatee tour has whetted your appetite for spotting wildlife, it’s time to head east to the Florida Everglades. WOOTEN’S (wootenseverglades.com) provides a comprehensive introduction to local wild things with its well-stocked alligator pond and demonstrations and other wealth of other animal exhibits. Take advantage of the opportunity for a backwoods tour in a swamp buggy, a form of transportation invented specifically to travel the wetlands of the Everglades. After lunch in Everglades City, hop on an airboat tour of the Everglades’ River of Grass. See page 54 for more information on airboating, another form of transportation born in the Everglades. For dinner, relish still more local seafood with gourmet flair at DEEP LAGOON SEAFOOD (deeplagoon.com), back in Naples.

day 4: Pick your day’s water adventure with PURE FLORIDA NAPLES (purefl.com). Deep-sea fishing? Calm bay fishing? Sightseeing? Shelling? This outfitter offers all of that and more. It is located in Tin City, so plan on some extra time at the rustic, salty retail center for shopping and dining. Spend the evening relaxing over cocktails and dinner along Fifth Avenue South in downtown Naples.

Everglades Airboat Excursions

It all began in the Florida Everglades in the 1940s when tourists started asking for rides on the boats used by local frog hunters. The zippy boats with their shallow draft could fly over the so-called River of Grass waters from which the hunters supplied fancy French restaurants with frog legs. With public interest in the unusual mode of transportation, the airboat tour industry took sudden flight.

54

Everglades City - Marco Island - Naples

Today, airboat tour operators line Tamiami Trail between Naples and Miami and fill the town of Everglades City with opportunities to hop aboard the noisy contraptions and head out in Everglades waters—now in search of alligators, raccoons, birds, and other wildlife. Every tour operator has his or her own shtick, but they all share Everglades backwaters, opportunities to educate about the mangrove and marsh habitats, and built-in thrills.

swflorida.travel


They provide protective headgear to deaden the noise of the huge aircraft-like propellers that speed them across the water’s surface.

Here are five places where you can get the ride of your life... swflorida.travel

Everglades City - Marco Island - Naples

1

WOOTEN’S

One of the longest running airboat tour operators in the western Everglades, it has grown since the 1950s into an extensive nature attraction that also offers tours of its animal sanctuary—home to a Florida panther, tigers, lions, otters and more than 100 alligators—gator and other animal demonstrations, swamp buggy tours, a gift shop, and kayak rentals and tours. You can opt for public or private swamp buggy and airboat rides or combos of both. wootenseverglades.com

2

JUNGLE ERV’S AIRBOAT TOURS

Book a Wilderness Airboat Tour or Mangrove Canopy Airboat Tour, or a combination of both. Your tickets get you free passage to a boardwalk trail that travels through a raccoon sanctuary, gator slough, mangrove forest, and manatee lookout point. They also include admission to an alligator show. jungleervairboatworld.com

did you know... 3

EVERGLADES CITY AIRBOAT TOURS

Operated by a third-generation airboat tour guide, it takes pride in making its tours small—a maximum of six people per boat—and personalized. Guides can communicate with their passengers via two-way headphones. The one-hour narrated tour takes you through tight mangrove tunnels and narrow creeks that the bigger boats can’t navigate. evergladescity-airboattours.com

56

Everglades City - Marco Island - Naples

frog legs once were exclusive to French restaurants, but today they are considered traditional Everglades fare. You can sample them —typically fried— at practically any restaurant in the Everglades City area.

CAPTAIN JACK’S AIRBOAT TOURS

5

CAPT. MITCH’S AIRBOAT TOURS

With its Total Everglades Combo, you get to tour mangroves and grasslands by airboat, ride aboard a bigwheeled and elevated swamp buggy, visit Captain Jack’s animal sanctuary, see a free alligator show, and even hug a baby alligator for a cool Instagram post. Home to rescued wildlife, the animal sanctuary holds snakes, turtles, crocodiles, alligators, river otters, and big cats. captainjacksairboattours.com

A descendant of pioneers in the airboat business, Capt. Mitch offers private tours in six-seat boats. The business, he likes to boast, is “Redneck Owned and Operated.” During a one-hour tour, learn about the Everglades eco-system and how it works while exploring hardwood tree hammocks, cattail sloughs, and habitat for a number of wild animals including gators, snakes, bobcats, and bald eagles. captainmitchs.com

vacation hacks We’ve compiled a list of our top five hacks to help you enjoy your time away from home and get the best out of your sunny vacation to Southwest Florida.

1

2

Don’t want to get your car all sandy after a day at the beach? Carry a bottle of baby powder with you and use it to clean the sand off of your feet. It works like a charm!

3

Did you forget your cell phone charger? Ask the front desk of your hotel. People forget their chargers all the time and hotels usually have plenty to share.

4

If you plan to be on the beach after sunset, bring some No-see-um spray with you. An annoying mosquito-like creature comes out after sunset and you will want to be protected from its tiny bites.

5

Feel clean and fresh the whole trip. Throw a dryer sheet in your suitcase to keep your clothes smelling nice.

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.

Three Days the Family Way

From Cape Coral, Pine Island and North Fort Myers to Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, the region just north of Fort Myers has so much in store for families, you might need a plan. This three-day road map to navigating the area with kids hits all the high notes. And a few secrets.

day 1:

Get a jump on the day’s crowd and head to the sign with the giant conch shell that marks the SHELL FACTORY & NATURE PARK (shellfactory.com), the region’s oldest surviving attraction, in North Fort Myers. There’s enough happening here to spend a half-day at least. The Nature Park brings together our most intriguing native species such as alligators and raccoons, with 400 different creatures from around the world. Kids are particularly fascinated by the bugs, spiders, snakes, and other creepy-crawly critters in the Eco Lab; farm and exotic animals they can pet and feed; the butterfly garden; and the dinosaur playground. In Scallywags Fun Park, every amusement activity they have ever dreamed of exists–from miniature

Cape Coral - Pine Island - Port Charlotte - Punta Gorda

golf and bumper boats to zip lining and a 40-foot climbing pole. Stop in at Southern Grill for seafood, pasta, and ribs before you head to the shops and museums inside. From its humble beginnings as a shell shop, the retail operation has flourished into a continuum of gift stores, the Christmas House, a fudge shop, a video arcade, and other dazzling attractions.

day 2:

Time for sunshine, water, and beach. Cape Coral’s SUN SPLASH FAMILY PARK (sunsplashwaterpark.com) opens seasonally with all the speed slides, kiddie pools, sand beaches, and stay-wet activities kids love. When it isn’t open, head instead to the public beach at the YACHT CLUB COMMUNITY PARK (capecoral.net) in Cape Coral. It borders the Caloosahatchee River and provides swimming ops from its shoreline and in its swimming and kiddie pools. Other family-friendly facilities include a waterfront restaurant, playgrounds, a fishing pier, and a bait shop. In the

afternoon, visit the CALUSA HERITAGE TRAIL (floridamuseum.ufl.edu/rrc) in Pineland on Pine Island to build a history lesson into the schedule. Learn about the region’s earliest inhabitants and climb to the top of a Calusa mound. Plan on dinner at one of the island’s funky fish houses in Matlacha or St. James City.

day 3:

To the North, Charlotte County maintains its nature and history for a quiet, off-the-radar day of exploration. DOWNTOWN PUNTA GORDA preserves its history in its buildings and a trail of 29 murals that tell stories from heyday to modern-day. In the cool of morning, take advantage of the free bicycle loaner program to tour the town, its riverfront, parks, shops, and great restaurants. Spend the rest of the day relaxing at PORT CHARLOTTE BEACH PARK (charlottecountyfl.gov). In addition to sunning and swimming in river waters, the complete recreation center offers picnic facilities, grills, swimming and kiddie pools, basketball, tennis, volleyball, a fishing pier, and canoe and kayak rentals.
