Your booked and ready to go, so now what? Below you will find a list of what we recommend you pack for your trip, as well as some other attractions in our area that you may enjoy!
A bad sunburn can ruin a vacation, or at the least make it extremely uncomfortable. Our Captains wear long, light pants, and long sleeve shirts with hats and tons of sunscreen. We recommend the same if you are not used to our strong Florida sunlight. Sunglasses are a must, preferably polarized, to help protect your eyes from the sun and the reflective rays coming off the water. Our Captains wear Costa Del Mar, as they are tailor made for the anglers and outdoorsman. And of course you'll want to bring a camera to capture all the memories you'll be making.
If you have a couple days off the water and would like to see what Punta Gorda has to offer, we recommend checking out the local shops and restaurants at Fisherman's Village ( http://www.fishville.com/ ). Its quiant and florida style atmosphere is something the whole family will enjoy.
Paddleboarding and Kayaking is popular along our flats and estuaries. We recommend using Southwest Florida Paddlesports (http://shop.floridapaddlesports.com/ ). It's a great workout and allows you to experience the most pristine Charlotte Harbor areas at its calmest.
If you enjoy a nice glass of wine with great food and a romantic atmosphere, we recommend Trabue (http://www.trabuerestaurant.com/) in downtown Punta Gorda. We love the mussels, and roasts. Be sure to ask to be seated outside if it's a nice evening, as you'll be surrounded by sparkling lights and on most nights a lovely guitarist.
Laishley Crabhouse offers delicious seafood, sushi, and American cuisine, combined with a prime waterfront location and impressive interior design which result in a one of a kind dining experience for the whole family. This is one of our favorite restaurants and we highly recommend them to any visitors to our area.
