Be sure to bring your camera because there will likely be some wildlife making appearances!
Good Time Charters
Good Time Charters will take you out on a tranquil trip across the waters during sunset. While you are on board, a naturalist guide will tell you all about the local seabirds, dolphins, and manatees. You will also get the chance to stop and go shelling as the sun sets on the horizon. This trip takes about three hours, and if you do need to cancel, you can do so for free up to 24 hours in advance. These charters are wheelchair and stroller accessible so that everyone can enjoy the trip. Afterward, you can return to your Fort Myers Beach rentals and relax.
