On our first full day on Marco Island in southwest Florida we attended the Admiral’s Sunset Dinner Cruise. If you’re just now reading about our Florida trip series let me catch you up really quick!
We had the opportunity through Spirit Airlines to fly into Fort Myers (Florida) and then drive by rental car to Marco Island to learn about and experience the area for almost one week. This was our first family trip flying anywhere and our first family trip to Florida! I’ll have links to the previous posts at the end of this one.
As a travel blogger all of our main needs were covered for this trip. I was not paid to write about this trip and all opinions are my own and my family’s. Thanks to Florida’s Paradise Coast for providing our itinerary.
During our time on board we were fortunate to get a look at some dolphins swimming near our dinner boat. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset dinner cruise with absolutely delicious food. We also met a wonderful Christian couple who were enjoying the cruise as well. I think they were celebrating their anniversary.
While waiting for the cruise to begin we noticed a boat next to us had a guy throwing something (I’m guessing it was fish) to the various fowl that were gathering around his boat. We enjoyed watching different kinds of birds gather around to get a snack from him. I was able to video a little of this interaction. It was fun to watch and you can see the short video I shared here at my Instagram page.
This was our boys and my first time EVER in Florida so we saw unfamiliar animals. I think some of these fowl were osprey but I don’t know what those birds with the long beaks were. If you watch the video and know what the other birds were please tell me in the comments!
As I said above, the food was absolutely delicious! I certainly don’t know how to cook meat to the perfection I thought this was done. I’ll have a link to their menu and different dinner cruise options at the end of this post. If you get a chance to be down in Marco you should consider taking their cruise. Kids are welcome on the cruise and ages 11 and under are half price.
We enjoyed the cruise from inside the ship at our table and outside the ship on the deck. While we were out on the deck cruising past the shoreline at dusk I was able to video the sights we were seeing. I shared this on my Instagram page recently. You can see our sight seeing cruise here.
