Experience the sights of Naples from the water on this sightseeing cruise. Get the chance to spot seabirds, dolphins, and possibly manatees, depending on the season. While on board, sit back and relax as you learn about local history, wildlife, and celebrity real estate. Plus pass by the area’s high-end mansions on Keewaydin Island.

Thank you for taking the time to post a wonderful recap of the Society's work. You did an excellent job, and I'm sorry we were closed when you came to visit Historic Palm Cottage. Know we look forward to seeing you next season. If you haven't signed up for the Society's Cottage Briefs (our e-newsletter), please do because we've introduced a new product for these trying times called The Society Sage. It contains productive exercises for children and fabulous reading material for people of all ages. That link is: https://visitor.r20.constantcontact.com/manage/optin?v=001PwvH1XjSNdcfzT76J3WBlhcBAhAzoMn-jIJaatglrG5FSNnJQOhF2iv2oGs8_cb9Ow8DatMrHPC6vZEUvFRdlu4Lb9KLRNkZ5OqHdRuqrKOne57ZkWuu3qvoh-jV-xITuvawwidACx0SpfE20Q6weUKHmp6OV36fe_NnwGiJMK4AZV-MsTQPW65H0pCjcc09 Thank you, again, for your support of our work, and stay safe and healthy!

Thank you for such a wonderful review. Or volunteer docents, and greeters, take great pride in their knowledge of the history of Naples, and Historic Palm Cottage. Be sure to tell your family and friends to stop by Historic Palm Cottage for a tour of their own the next time they are in town or visiting Naples pier.

Was part of a great tour today led by the totally awesome Jerry. He was very knowledgeable, and his tour was interesting and amusing. He gave a lot of details, basically making a 50 minute speech with no notes. Sure, he’s done it before, many times, but he still seemed as

The Palm Cottage is very worthwhile tour that conveys the unique history of the Naples area as well as the people who laid the foundations for the region success. You will not only get a glimpse of what tourist life was like in the early 20th century, but also hear the stories
