The 5th Annual Keewaydin Beach Party and Pot Luck!!!!






5th annual Keewaydin Beach Party!!







We will rent pontoon boats which will join any private boats/jet skis/kayaks and head out to Keewaydin Island for a day of fun in the sun.  Our trip begins at Brookside Marina on Davis Blvd, where we will load the boats and embark on the Gordon River, through Naples Bay ending at Keewaydin Island.  Take in the abundant wildlife such as dolphins, manatees and bald eagles on this scenic trip that takes about an hour.

The cost of this event will be $33.00 pp, boat rental and fuel for the pontoon boats.)  This event is limited to the first 24 people but if the waiting list has enough people to fill another boat, we may be able rent another boat.

Everyone should bring something to share and whatever you want to drink.  Please post what you plan on bringing so we have a varied menu.  These pontoon boats seat 12 people with enough room for compact chairs, coolers and beach toys so bring just what you need. We can condense coolers at the dock if necessary.

Plan to meet at the marina at 8:30 am for a 9:00 am departure. If you miss the boat, you miss the boat and there are no refunds if you do.  We will leave at 4:00 unless threatening weather changes our plans. If the day ends early due to bad weather there will be NO refunds unless the marina provides a refund to the event organizer.

The refund policy is as follows:

1) If the day ends early due to bad weather there will be NO refunds unless the marina provides a refund to the event organizer.

2) If an RSVP is removed from the list due limited seating, 100% refund will be given.  This event price is based on attendance of 12 people per boat.  If we can only fill one boat, the last people to sign up will be the first to loose their seat, so sign up early!!!

3) If you have to cancel after paying, the fees are not refundable but are transferable if you find someone to fill your seat.

There will be a canopy and grill.

Bring a hat, sand chair, plenty of sunscreen, noodles or other floatation devices, your drinks, food and insect repellant

    Thank you Donnie and Dave for being our two boat captains. We really appreciate it! This is a potluck so everyone may post the food item they are bringing. Please also cross reference with our Private Boats event page ( so we don't have too many duplicates and also for a head count (although you DO NOT need to bring food for the total number of people... only about a quarter of them)
