Captain Brian and gals off Cayo Costa Island

It starts on Matlacha, a tiny and colorful island that is the gateway to Pine Island on Florida’s southwest coast, thirty minutes from Ft. Myers. From there you and your pals will travel by boat to the legendary island of Cabbage Key where you will stay overnight. Next, take a private trip to one of Florida’s best beach and shelling islands, Cayo Costa. And that’s not all. Add some shopping, a nature tour and a tangerine colored sunset to the mix and you’ll have a weekend that will be remembered forever. So here’s your task: Organize a group of like-minded friends who are adventurous and enjoy the outdoors – and want to experience Florida – beyond the ordinary. Get everyone involved in the planning by dividing up the activities – the driving, the reservations, even the libations. Follow this simple plan and get ready for major fun. And don’t forget the wine!
