A 5 to 6 hour "Fun Boat trip" from Fort Myers Beach to "Lovers Key" in Bonita.

Pamela & I are both "certified" to operate these boats, and we'll be at the helm for this 5-6 hour trip.  Pamela is also a licenced Captain with the U.S. Coast Guard.

These boats are all Coast Guard approved with life jackets, navigation systems  etc..  We monitor radar weather, and won't go out if it's not good. 

B.Y.O.B (alcohol or non-alcohol), cup, ice, and a very small cooler (6 pack) size.

We'll be docking for lunch, appetizer, just a drink etc. (at your own expense) in Bonita Springs and a rest room break around 2 hrs. after we leave the dock. 

Although I'm not charging for this because "Freedom" boat club now says I can't, we'll gladely accept  a "gratuity" if you please to cover some costs of doing these trips. 

I'm a member of the "Freedom boat club" and their sales Department told us I could charge my Meetup group members $25.00 each per trip to help pay for my membership fee of $5,500.00 plus $242.00 per month after the first year. 

In addition to this I pay for gas & tips for dock workers that help us with docking (about $60.00 per trip).

The owner of the "Freedom boat club" now claims I can't charge members, and they won't refund my money to get out.   So that's why I'm asking for a "voluntary gratuity" to help pay for this.  People have asked what is the "normal gratuity" paid to us, it's usually $25.00.  View photos of our past trips in "photos" above. 

Please use the restroom at the entrance to Parrot Key before boarding the boat so we don't have to make any emergency stops in the first 2 hours of the trip.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
