Sailing Excursion

Following a short shuttle to the Naples City Dock Marina, you will board a 53’ catamaran for a morning of sailing and shelling. Watch for dolphins as you cruise the famous homesites of Port Royal before heading out to the Gulf of Mexico. There will be a 30-45 minute stop at Keewaydin Island to do some optional shelling and swimming.

Golf

Following a quick shuttle ride, enjoy 18 holes of golf at Club Pelican Bay in Naples. This exclusive private club was originally developed by Westinghouse and opened in 1980 as a private club. In 2016, Club Pelican Bay achieved the designation of a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses. You’ll take a break from your round of golf to enjoy lunch in the club’s dining room. You may bring your own golf clubs or opt to rent them from the clubhouse. Golf balls and a towel will be provided. Meet in the lobby of the hotel on Monday morning at 8:10 a.m. and return by 4 p.m.
