Half Day Charlotte Harbor Lunch Cruise

The King Fisher Fleet in Punta Gorda, FL has a half-day Harbor Cruise on Charlotte Harbor to the Burnt Store Marina for lunch at Porto Bello’s Restaurant. This is laid-back cruising at its best, where we will see dolphins, birds, fish and other plentiful sea life, which abound in this beautiful bay. 

We will also get a little local history, pirate lore and other colorful stories along the way. During the lunch stop, at approximately 11:00 AM, you can walk the docks, look at beautiful yachts and take a few photos before cruising back to Punta Gorda. The cruise provides sodas, water and munchies for a small fee.

However, due to the unique dietary
 requirements of YAHOOs, we can bring small coolers on board with wine/beer/snacks. Coolers must be left on the boat during the lunch stop.
