Enjoy Gasparilla Sound with its turquoise water, small islands and bird sanctuaries. The fishing is great! A stop at Gasparilla Island, with the waterfront community of Boca Grande, is a must. Gasparilla Sound is home to unique wildlife which attracts wildlife photographers from around the world.
Just anchor or cruise in the Sound to enjoy the wildlife. You can see dolphins, white pelicans and other marine species. It will be a relaxing day in a protected marine environment which can only be experienced by boat.
The trip from Punta Gorda takes 25 to 45 minutes to reach the Gasparilla Sound. Make it a whole-day excursion in this enjoyable environment.
Bring your own lunch or set course for one of the dockside restaurants. (The Fishery in Cape Haze, or the Pink Elephant in Boca Grande). Don’t miss a cruise on the waterways of Gasparilla Island, with unique (and very expensive) waterfront homes and downtown Boca Grande.
