If you’ve been dreaming of hanging out on a desert island, then this is the tour for you! Picnic Island is a small primitive island located on the Intercoastal Waterway. It is a 45-minute cruise to and from the island. Wildlife to watch for along the route includes tropical birds such as the great egret, snowy egret, cattle egret, great blue heron, and various species of raptors including osprey, hawk, and bald eagle. We’ll keep our eyes open for dolphin and manatee, alligators and even deer along the shorelines.
You will have roughly an hour to spend on the island. There’s a beautiful hike through the mangroves and a lovely natural, unspoiled beach on a lagoon for sunbathing. You’ll be able to collect some unique shells, go swimming, or simply bask in the sun. Bring your dogs along for a frolic in the water. This is a wet landing, so water shoes are advisable. Inquire about a shore lunch on the grill.
