The Gulf Shore Grill & The Cottage

Posted by Shane On March 20th

Have I got a place to go for you this weekend in the boat. Have you heard of the Gulfshore Grill & The Cottage on Ft. Myers Beach? This is a great time of year to go (Spring Break). If you like to people watch and have a great time you have got to go. Once you have anchored off of Ft. Myers Beach, you can walk up to the beach and get lunch at the Cottage. At The Cottage you can sit out on a deck or inside over looking the beach and Gulf of Mexico and watch all the people, it is really quite amusing. The food at The Cottage is really good an the cold beverages are great too. If you want to dine inside in the air conditioning walk next door to the Gulfshore Grill which also offers amazing views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. The food here is really good as well. After lunch you can go down stairs to the Beach Bar and hang out enjoy a cold beverage and people watch. Or throw a Frisbee or play smash ball or just relax in the refreshing waters of the Gulf of Mexico. You will have a great time here, everyone is happy and having a great time!!!Oh, do not forget you camera. Enjoy the photos.

Bow Ditch Point

Posted by Shane On March 13th

I have another really great boating guide tip that is often overlooked.
Have you heard of Bow Ditch Point? It is on the far north tip of Ft. Myers Beach. The really neat thing about this area of the beach is that there are not a ton of people this far up the beach. Now here is the cool thing, this location is great for everyone. If the Gulf is choppy or rough you can pull around the rear side (bayside) of the point and get out of the choppy waves. The beach here is really nice and offers the good sand if you know what I mean. There are several cool things about this beach. The first is fishing right from the beach, whoever the fisher people are in your group will love this. You can catch live bait right off the beach with a cast net. You can fish right off the beach and catch, Snook, Red Fish, Trout, Pompano, Whiting,Spanish Mackerel and many other species right off the beach, Why? Great currents push through the pass there. Another great thing is watching all the boats coming and going, watching the Dolphins play in the water. If you walk south a little ways there is a place to get cold drinks, sandwiches and snacks, it is part of the Lee County Parks and Recreation. There are also restrooms right there. This a great place to cook out, enjoy the weather, catch fish. Who Knows you may even catch a keeper fish and put it on the grill for lunch. Yes, I am serious, just be aware of our current fishing regulations. This beach offer something for everyone, so check it out and enjoy!! This is Paradise!!! You are probably wondering why not drive your car, well just try fighting the traffic on the road to Ft. Myers Beach and then try to find a parking spot…Ha ha, Good Luck…NOT…..
