Ride the Shark Boat

If you’re looking to make a splash on your next visit to ‘Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa, you’ve got to take a ride on the exhilarating Shark Boat! Talk about creating an unforgettable memory — the Shark Boat is the newest watersport activity offered right onsite at ‘Tween Waters through Captiva Watersports. Up to six riders can enjoy the Shark Boat at a time, each in her or his own seat, and the oversized pontoons on the sides make it very stable, and easy to get on and off. 

Ready to ride? Just step on and hold on! You’ll be skimming across the water in no time, with the wind in your hair, yelling for more. The Shark Boat ride is about 15 minutes in length and you don’t have to worry about steering as you’re towed behind a jet ski driven by a USCG certified captain. What a thrill! And it’s only $20 per rider. 

If you enjoy the water but don’t want to get wet, parasailing is another exhilarating option. No physical ability is required either. Just sit on the rear of the boat and be gently lifted to 800 feet in the air. Up to three people can soar at the same time. And those views of the island, the Gulf and Pine Island Sound!! You might even see dolphins or manatees.  

Whatever your level of activity or your budget, Captiva Watersports has something for you. Discount coupons can be found at their website along with any age, height or weight restrictions. You can also find coupons in your “Resort Rewards” coupon book you’ll be given upon check-in. 

Have fun out there!

Baseball and the Beach

One of the highlights of a springtime visit to ‘Tween Waters is the opportunity to not only enjoy the beautiful beaches and warm sunshine, but also the chance to catch some exciting baseball games. Baseball fans know that many professional MLB teams descend on Florida for their spring training; it’s known as The Grapefruit League. There are two major league teams that happen to call neighboring Fort Myers home each spring, and it’s an easy drive from ‘Tween Waters.

 

There are games scheduled almost daily, and fans are encouraged to come catch fly balls, get autographs, cheer on the rookies and the seasoned stars, and take advantage of the unique opportunity to get unparalleled access to favorite players. It is a baseball fan’s dream-come-true! Plus, the weather is fantastic (think high temperatures of about 77˚ Fahrenheit and lows in the upper 50s.)  If you want to check out some games, you can get your tickets at the gate or order them in advance at floridagrapefruitleague.com.

 

And what’s better after a baseball game? How about returning to ‘Tween Waters for a refreshing plunge in the pool and a tasty grouper sandwich (or a kosher beef hotdog!) at the Oasis Pool Bar & Grille? If you’re not into baseball, but are in the sporting mood, there are lots of activities you can enjoy onsite, like biking, paddle boarding, beach volleyball, tennis, and more.

 

Then, as the sun begins to set on yet another perfect spring day, stroll over to the beach to catch a world-famous Captiva sunset. No baseball glove required.
