The captain and mate were very efficient and helpful in loading and unloading passengers and their gear. The captain's entertaining stories and local lore made the trip from Pine Island to Cayo Costa seem less than the 50 minutes it actually took. I highly recommend...More

We enjoyed our boat trip out to Cayo Costa Island. We did see some dolphin and birdlife. The water was calm and we managed to avoid any rainclouds that were around. Being a week end, the boat had a large group of young children on...More

Great trip! Well worth the drive to Bokeelia to get that local flavor. Best way to get to Cabbage Key and Cayo Costa State Park from Cape Coral. Captain Autumn is friendly and kept us entertained with plenty of local knowledge!

We paid $32 per person, round trip to Cayo Costa. Well worth it if you want to lay in the sun, go shelling, swim. Nothing there though so take whatever (picnic, chairs...) you want to have while there.
