Excusions to Boca Grande Cabbage Key, Useppa.Is it worth it?

I've noticed that many boating excusions offer trips to Boca Grande, Cabbage Key and Useppa Island. My question is, as we are staying at the Waterside Inn on Sanibel, is are they really worth it? I am definitely going on the Cayo Costa trip but feel the other excusions are just a lot of walking, looking at historic buildings, shopping and having to find a restaurant for lunch. Can't I do better by just touring on my own on Sanibel and Captiva ?

Cabbage Key Day Trip -if you like nature/wildlife/tranquility Yes. For Hip restaurants, thinks to do, activities that are not listed above - no.

Experience Florida the way as nature intended

Welcome to Cabbage Key . One hundred acres of tropical vegetation surround the historic restaurant, inn and cottages. A panoramic view of Pine Island Sound is provided from our front porch atop a thirty-eight foot Indian shell mound.

There are no cars here, not even a paved road. You will find winding nature trails, picturesque views and relaxation .

I recommend Matlacha on Pine Island - funky artist community (you'll love it, many art and craftes created on the island.). If your looking for action you will need to cross the bridge and visit Fort Myers Beach or Naples/Marco Island some 30 -45 minutes by car or boat.

Don't forget Ding Darling, IMO the best reason to visit Sanibel. The sunset boat or kayak trips are unbeatable for information and seeing birds at a gorgeous time.
