“Wonderful Way to See the Sunset”

Double Sunshine Cruises
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 November 2013

This afternoon I went on a benefit cruise that used the Double Sunshine Cruise service in Tin City, Naples, Fl. It was pretty full at 120 people. There was an open cash bar which is provided by the cruise line. It is a two deck affair. Not only was this 90 minute cruise one of the better I have been on, but also on the way out they give you a nice history of Naples as they point out the businesses and houses and developments that have grown there over the last 80 years or so. Just before you enter the Gulf of Mexico on your way to a rendezvous with a gulf sunset, they take a short 15-20 minute detour into the very scenic development of Port Royal full of beautiful houses that are owned by the who's who of some of the most famous products and businesses of the 20th century. All is narrated live by a crew member who really knows his stuff. On the way out, dolphins joined us for part of the ride. The entire experience was a real treat with a knowledgeable captain and crew. I highly recommend their sunset cruise.

Our local friend was showing us around and said the best way to see Naples was by boat, otherwise its just hedges and walls. He was correct as our tour explored the waterways giving some of the history of the area and showing us how the really rich guys spend on one of their holiday homes -some very nice expensive well designed homes on the canals. The captain and crew were informative and professional. It was also nice to get out to the Gulf for a different kind of view. Definitely recommended for tourists. If you are not a kiwi you would probably miss the NZ flag flying up top- good to see- ask why when you are there..

I found this cruise company using Groupon and am glad that I did. The boat was very nice and comfortable and the crew was very accommodating. We had a nice 1 1/2 hour tour sightseeing the homes along the water in Naples and then spent some time in the Gulf, which we weren't expecting, but the water was calm so we were able to go there. We had a nice time on the water and am glad we chose this boat to sail on.

90 minutes and you get to see most of the Naples waterways, dolphins and maybe a bald eagle. This is great with kids. I was even able to take my husband who is wheelchair bound.

This was a 90 minute cruise down to the Gulf. Houses were interesting to see and hear about even if we didn't know about the owners as we are from the UK. It was an opportunity to see quite a different life style. Needless to say the highlight of the trip were the accompanying dolphins who entertained us most of the way down. Snacks and shelter were available on the boat.
