Reel Kind Fishing charters boats on which adventurers explore backwater wetlands, protected freshwater, and saltwater regions that are home to diverse marine life. Along with licensed and experienced captains, the company supplies rods, reels, tackle, and bait, ensuring that even novice fishers can participate. Tour-takers might nab snook, redfish, spotted seatrout, and tarpon, the four of which can be housed together in a jumbo aquarium for a fish reality show, as long as a sassy blowfish joins the mix. Each boat seats up to three people for half-days, three-quarter days, or full days, with the vessels heading either inshore or offshore near the Gulf of Mexico. Explorers might bring a hat, sunglasses, snacks, and jackets, according to the weather, and smocks depending on how neatly their co-tourists can eat.
It's the southernmost point of the entire United States, approximately 95 miles north of Cuba with a longitude of relaxation and a latitude of party time. Key West is the place where Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams worked on their tans and perhaps wrote some novels, and where Ponce de Leon searched for his fountain of youth. Since people still haven't evolved to grow wings, they often try to get there via the Overseas Highway, where congestion often quickly spoils holiday inertia. Key West Express instead turns the sea into a shimmering freeway to relaxation, often getting the vacation kick-started before feet hit solid ground.
With a fleet of jet-propelled catamarans, travelers savor smooth sailing along their treks. Riders can nest inside air-conditioned interiors, where bartenders stir up libations and flat-screens make time fly by, or they can gorge on sunshine and views from the outdoor decks. Upon arrival, travelers can use the second half of their round trip to return home at a later date, after they've guzzled their fill of Cuban sandwiches or written a sequel to The Sun Also Rises.
When a restaurant's award tally ticks close to 100, there's no need to change the menu. That's the philosophy at work at Michelbob's Championship Ribs, where co-owners Marsha Gibbs and Bob Mattson have been serving baby back ribs imported from Denmark and slathered in award-winning original-recipe barbecue sauce since 1979. All of their meats?which also include barbecue chicken, pork, and beef?are slow-smoked to a tender perfection each day and served alongside sides such as baked beans, cole slaw, and onion rings, which are all also made fresh daily. Most recently, their victuals won the Naples Daily News award for Best Food in Southwest Florida. They also ship their sauce and ribs anywhere in the United States via overnight air shipping, catering to the legions of fans and long-haul bike messengers who crave their delectable barbecue brand.
For Captain Carl, setting sail on one of his Marco Island Fun Tours hardly qualifies as working. Every trip he embarks on?whether skimming along the mangrove forests, searching for seashells on a beach accessible only by boat, or escaping a pod of furious mermaids?is a family outing. The crew comprises only members of Captain Carl's family, and is the inspiration for Marco Island Fun Tours. Back when he started the business, his biggest motivation was to give folks a chance to bond with their own kin and "enjoy time on the water." To that end, the captain takes passengers out on private charters, leads kid-friendly tours in search of dolphins, or spirits guests toward unfettered views of the sunset.
