A Day of Play in Fort Myers

August 6, 2009

Today is a day of play and discovery and experiences you will never forget. We are going to start the day with a hearty breakfast followed by an incredible experience at a Marine Science Center.

Beach Treats - located at 17284 San Carlos Blvd Ft. Myers is the perfect place for breakfast or brunch before starting your day. From 6:30 am - 6 days a week you can enjoy a delicious breakfast and if you love coffee, you will enjoy their gourmet coffees.

The action starts when you hit the water with Adventure Water Sports - they are your premier destination for fun in the sun on beautiful Ft. Myers Beach Florida. You can enjoy the water the way you want either on their wave runners, kayaks and sail boats or you can enjoy a relaxing guided dolphin tour around the island. You can sit back and relax or be as active as you would love to be. If you don’t want to be as active as that, you can sit back in their comfortable beach chairs with umbrella and table.
