$24 Gets You a 75-Minute Jet-Boat Eco Tour (a $49 Value)
During the 75-minute eco tour and adventure, passengers file into Jet Boat Naples' modern jet boat to explore the northern 10,000 islands at speeds of more than 30 knots. As the boat flies through waterways, a narrator waxes facts about the local ecosystem, mangrove forest, and wildlife such as dolphins and birds. Passengers even experience what it feels like to "spin out" in a boat with Jet Boat Naples' signature 360-degree Kiwi Turn, named for the temperature of the boat. Tours leave daily at 9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m., and 5:30 p.m.
Pure Fort Myers
Father-and-son duo Captains Lance and Harry Julian founded Pure Naples in 2009 to introduce landlubbers to the pristine waterways that surround Naples. No strangers to the waters, the Julians draw on five generations of maritime business and 25 years of maritime-tourism experience to make their tours as fun and informative as possible. Together they introduce tourists to picturesque views of dolphins, bald eagles, and nature’s cutest cow, the manatee, with cruises, or they facilitate individual exploring with Jet Ski and boat rentals. They even take their boats out on regular deep-sea or bay fishing trips and private charters for the serious angler.
