Reconnect with nature and discover the “Old Florida” feel as you cruise the Caloosahatchee with Pure Florida. This 90-minute experience is a perfect opportunity to kick-back and relax. Enjoy the fresh air, watch the many birds in the rookeries, enjoy the mangrove inlet and the entertaining historical and ecological narration provided by Pure Florida Captain and First Mate. Wildlife sightings are seasonal and cannot be guaranteed but have included dolphins, manatee, gators and a variety of birds.
“The morning temperature was cool but with the promise of the day heating up later in the morning.
As we headed out of the berth at The Edison Ford Marina, we could see Pinchers staff busy setting up their dining area. The Edison Explorer entered into the river channel and it wasn’t long before we were joined by a dolphin. Further on we visited numerous mangrove areas with tons of birdlife. Beautiful white cranes, egrets and even a Bald Eagle sitting in its roost on a dead White Pine. All along the way the Certified Naturalist and Historian explained everything to us and answered all of our questions. It was fascinating learning about the old Semiole Bridge. Our day was completed with the sighting of two Manatee. People come from all over the world to see this animal.”
Thank you Pure Florida for this wonderful
Fort Myers river cruise experience.
