We boarded the Charlotte Lady for our 9 hour cruise and were immediately welcomed by the warm, friendly crew. Captain Ralph, Ron, and Brenda were great hosts and regaled us with informative and amusing stories about the region and its history. Cabbage Key was a great destination and the food was exceptional and very reasonably priced for the freshness and... More

My wife and I took the cruise from Punta Gorda to Cabbage Key so we could check out the restaurant and cabins. The cruise left on time and was very pleasant. Nice having a bar on board that served adult beverages & snacks. Captain Ralph and his crew were great. They were very friendly and didn't hesitate to answer questions... More

Staff was friendly and professional, with a lot of good information on the area. Ability to sit inside or outside was great for our family, with Grandma and Grandpa enjoying the warmer inside seating. Clean bathrooms on board. Sunset was wonderful, cruise was relaxing and the accompanying (recorded) music added to the ambiance. Weather for the day we originally booked... More

We took the all day excursion to Cabbage Key. It is quite a long boat trip to get to the key and a bit boring for some of us. We went during a week-day so the boat was not too crowded. They sell cocktails on board as well as "gourmet snacks" (cheezits and chips). They were pretty pricey-but its what's... More

It was the trip of a life time for all six of us , Captain Dan and Johnathon were the greatest guides we have ever met. They were very knowledgeable about the area and all the types of fish we could catch. We caught one that would have been a trophy but was out of season so they helped us... More

This was located in heart of Punta Gorda where many tourist go so I imagined it would be a good spot to book a charter or tour. I was very disappointed in the knowledge and the girl running the operation was very rude. I ended up cancelling because of the way I was treated for asking questions about the area.... More

December 3rd evening started with really friendly staff directing us to our boat. Once on the boat, staff was equally friendly and helpful and did all that they could to make the Christmas light tour memorable.

Captain and first mate were entertaining and put on a good show. $18 per person well spent for this 1 1/2 hour tour. Only downside was speech near end of cruise... More

Took the 4 hour back bay fishing trip. Captain Bob was very knowledgeable of where the fish were biting, and knew when to move to to next hot spot when they stop biting. We caught a total of 6 trout, 2 mangrove snapper, and 2 sheepshead that we were able to keep, caught many more that were to small to... More

Even though this is a long day, the boat ride was very enjoyable and seeing the dolphins on the way to Cayo Costa was entertaining. Bring a book or the ride is 2 hours there then 2 hours on the island 2 hours back. Not enough time on the island, it is very beautiful.
