Details

If you never have been to bird island on a holiday weekend its a good time. Bird island is on the Butler Chain in Windermere. The chain has plenty of room to wake board, tube, or whatever you want to do. If you want to bring a boat you MUST be there early due to the fact of limited parking. It does cost $5 dollars to launch and the ramp closes at dark. There are other ways to launch but it gets complicated. I know its early but its a full day of sun and fun. The party spot to those that like to mingle and party is on the North West side of bird island. On a Holiday weekend there are around 20-30 boats tied up to each other. There is no schedule for the day, my boat will do some water sports early then hit the island to get a good spot, then probably some more water sports. There is a giant swing on lake Tibet that I have video of on my facebook thats definitely worth checking out. The best way to meet up is to just exchange phone numbers and call once your on the water. Its a byob and food. Feel free to email me if you have any suggestions or comments. The boat ramp is located on Lake Isleworth. My boat is full already but if you dont have a boat email me and I'll do my best to get you on another boat.

Go to Map Quest: 10910 Chase Rd, Windermere, FL 34786. If you click on the "Aerial" button (top right of map) you can see a nice view of it. Use that map to get familiar with the chain if this is your first time. Bird Island is on Lake Butler.

The parking fills up fast you must be there early or sit in line and wait for an open spot. Remember you $5 for the launch.
