Pine Island, Florida is a hidden gem located in the beautiful waters of Ft. Myers, FL.  This mangrove island, composed mostly of palm tree nurseries, has avoided the high rise development of many areas in southwest Florida.  You will paddle the bays, backwaters, and shorelines of the Great Calusa Blueway paddling trail, launch right from our own dock nestled in the mangroves.  Accommodations are a very comfortable waterfront home with a beautiful view of the mangroves.  Greet dolphin and manatees as they visit on a regular basis.  Launch kayaks and SUP's right from our own dock.  Bike 17 miles of bicycle trail accessible from the house. It's a great way to escape the PA winter!  Our itinerary will be very relaxed with plenty of time to paddle, bike, bird, fish and explore.  Paddle as often or as little as you wish.  Relaxation is key on this special trip.  Meals including breakfast, lunch, hors d'oeuvres and dinner are provided.  Call 717-252-1616 for a trip sheet with full details.
Fee - includes all paddling gear, lodging, and meals - $2700/Week/Couple
