Punta Gorda Waterfront Walk-Holiday Canal Cruise

  • Dec 15, 2013 · 3:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

 

Lets get in the Holiday Spirit!!

We are going to be exploring some other great areas this season.  Today we are headed to Punta Gorda, about a 50 minute trip south from central Sarasota on I75. The historic waterfront walk is really exceptional and we will be doing the Harbor Walk from Fishermans Village , along Gilchrist Park to Laishley Park to the Trabue Harborwalk thru the mangrove forests and back...4.5 miles round trip.  Following the walk at 6:00 P.M. we will be leaving on a Holiday Canal Cruise to see all the decorated homes along the waterway.  This is a one hour cruise. Following the cruise we can stop for a bite to eat at Harpoon Harry on the end of the Fishermans Village Boardwalk overlooking the Peace River.

 

To get your ticket for the cruise call [masked] .  I will let them know that people from Sarasota Walkers want to be on the same boat.  Cost is $14.00.  Call early as they sell out by mid. Nov. so get your name in.  Ask to be with the Sarasota Walkers Group-Carolyn Francis       CALL TODAY!!

 

If you plan to carpool..let me know!  Last time we had several cars willing to carpool, but necessary if you want to make the trip on your own....shopping is good, so you may want to go early!!  Carpool from Walmart 2:30.  let me know if you are willing to carpool so we can determine who want to drive and ride.  Thanks.

    Great event planning. It was great that our boat ride just happened to coincide with the PG Boat Parade. It was nice interacting with the people partying in the homes along the canals. Thank you!

    I was looking forward to this event so much and was not one bit disappointed! The bonus of our cruise being at the same time of their boat parade made it even more spectacular! Thanks Carolyn for all you do for so many of us....including giving up your own boat ticket so others could enjoy!!

    Hi Everybody!!
    I have just found out that my husband's Christmas party is the same night as this event :-/ I'm still going to try to do the walk; however, I'm going to have to pass on the boat ride.

    I bought a ticket already and noticed that there are some who wanted to go but the boat was sold out. Anybody want to purchase my ticket from me? First come, first serve...call me (941) 628-5563. It was actually $15, not $14, by the way...

    Thanks!

    Doreen

      Congrats Kathy Lewis!! You're the proud owner of a boat ride ticket!! Thanks so much for calling so quickly...and I'm so thankful after talking to you that you are the one blessed with this ticket :-) Hope your sister recovers quickly, wishing you safe travels, and that this life transition finds you with more joy, blessings, and abundance than you ever thought possible.

    Wow, I regretfully ordered my ticket too late, boat filled, but I'm on a waiting list. My fault, I signed up early but waited too long to call for ticket. Maybe next year...
