Love being out on the water, but don’t love the investment that is required to own your own boat? Then consider joining one of SWFL’s boat clubs! It’s a carefree way to enjoy the Paradise Coast and Gulf of Mexico. All the maintenance is taken care of, and the boats are cleaned & gased up for you. So all you have to do is show up, hop on and take off! Cruise through the mangroves with the dolphins, anchor along the coastline for a dip, or head out into the Gulf to fish.

Sea turtle nesting season runs May through October here in southwest Florida.
There are several types of sea turtles that nest in southern Florida, but loggerheads are the most common. Mature females will come ashore at night to lay clutches of up to 100 eggs every 10 days.
About 55-60 days later, babies emerge and find their way back to the sea.
If you are on the beach and see a marked nest… DO NOT DISTURB!
