Dinner cruises are a relaxing way to dine in Sanibel Island, FL
Cruising Around Sanibel and Captiva Islands
Captiva cruises and Sanibel Island cruises represent one of the two options for getting out on the sea around these barrier islands. One may either take the adventurous route and learn to sail themselves at one of the island’s schools or they may simply charter a cruise. The latter option, of course, involves less work and more relaxation. There are Sanibel cruises and Captiva cruises which set out from the mainland and from the islands themselves. Either way, anyone who treats themselves to one of these expeditions is certainly in for an experience that will be hard to forget.

Taking a Captiva dinner cruise or Sanibel dinner cruise is one of the most relaxing ways to enjoy the waters around the island. These cruises allow the passengers to relax and enjoy the scenery over fine food and drink. Most of these cruises are offered on yachts, generally in the 100 foot size range, and also allow guests to dine below decks with the comfort of air conditioning and protection from the elements. Sanibel cruises and Captiva cruises will take guests by some of the most spectacular scenery in the region and some of the most pristine waters one is likely to find anywhere.

Captiva dining cruises and Sanibel dining cruises usually leave around sunset. The departure times will vary according to the time of year. The cruises usually run about two hours in total and take passengers around a circuit which offers them a view of the most popular landmarks from the Gulf of Mexico. The cuisine served on these cruises is generally of the highest order. Most cruises offer a seafood option, one or two meat options and a meat-free option to guests. Appetizers, drinks and other luxuries are standard amenities on these cruises. Captiva cruises and Sanibel cruises both offer their own unique experiences though most cruises will circuit both islands.

A Sanibel Island dinner cruise is one of the most popular activities with visitors to the islands of Sanibel or Captiva themselves and those who stay in Fort Myers. The calm waters, warm temperatures and abundant sea life make them very relaxing affairs. Booking Sanibel and Captiva cruises can be done online or by phone at most of the establishments who offer them. Many of the island resorts include dinner cruises as one of their options to keep their guests entertained. Captiva cruises and Sanibel cruises also allow passengers to take in the sunset from the sea, a truly breathtaking sight.
