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.
