The Pine Island Sound, Florida west coast

Anyone thinking about our little-known treasure on the west coast of Florida? I have made cruises here spending 7 days, never two nights on same anchorage and covering just 22 miles of chart distance. It is a delightful cruise where you see more birds and sea creatures than anywhere else I've been.

Love it down there. My ex-BIL lives in Ft. Myers, and before he was my ex, we did a lot of boating around there.

On the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Anchoring:

We anchored at the "Ding" Darling reserve, enjoyed our short stay. Wish we'd had time to stay longer. I'd suggest ActiveCaptain for a reference
