Fort Myers
Fort Myers Beach, FL

Welcome to Freedom Boat Club of Ft. Myers:
Balmy, secluded and clear.

Members at this club relish in the peaceful seclusion of nearby beaches and islands. Whether it is the serenity of Picnic Island (accessible under the Sanibel Causeway via Marker 101); the warm gulf waters and ideal shell-hunting of Lovers Key Beach (just south of Salty Sam's); or the clear waters and playful dolphins of Hickory Island (south through Estero Bay toward New Pass), you won't be disappointed.

A special attraction of neighboring Sanibel Island is one of the only working lighthouses on Florida's west coast, which still provides a clear beacon for many nighttime boaters. And you mustn't miss Grandma Dot's restaurant, just before the Sanibel Causeway Bridge.

Beach

Lover's Key State Park

For years, Lovers Key was accessible only by boat and it was said that only lovers traveled to the island to enjoy its remote and solitary beach. Today, it is one of four barrier islands that make up this state park. A haven for wildlife, the islands and their waters are home to West Indian manatees, bottlenose dolphins, roseate spoonbills, marsh rabbits, and bald eagles. The two mile long beach is accessible by boardwalk or tram and is popular for shelling, swimming, picnicking, and sunbathing. Black Island has over five miles of multiuse trails for hiking and bicycling. Anglers and boaters can launch their vessels from the park's boat ramp. The park's concession offers boat and fishing tours, as well as bicycle, canoe, and kayak rentals. For tour reservations, call (239) 314-0110. Located on County Road 865 between Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Beach in Lee County.

Entertainment

Cabbage Key Inn

Welcome to our island. One hundred acres of tropical vegetation surround our historic restaurant, inn and cottages. A panoramic view of Pine Island Sound is provided from our front porch atop a thirty-eight foot Indian shell mound. There are no cars here, not even a paved road. You will find winding nature trails, picturesque views and relaxation .

We are accessible only by boat, helicopter or seaplane. Regularly scheduled boats run everyday from Pine Island, Captiva Island and Punta Gorda. Remote and self-reliant, we do things "the Cabbage Key way," a style reminiscent of the nearly extinct old Florida. During the day many visitors stop in for one of our Cheeseburgers in Paradise. Nightlife is usually defined by a hearty meal in our restaurant, perhaps followed by some cordial conversation or entertainment in the famous Dollar Bill Bar. Vacation Accommodations and Marina on Cabbage Key Florida Gazing across the water reveals a sprawling canopy of stars and twinkling lights on the ICW. Early retirement with a book may be a choice in preparation for tomorrow's sunrise over Pine Island Sound.

There is no general store on the Island, so bring all the things you'll need for your stay, including a flashlight.

Dorado's Dockside Seafood Restaurant & T.P Hoolihan's Irish Pub

Our goal is to serve you the best seafood at a reasonable price with excellent service.

Dorado s restaurant is actually two different restaurants at one location.

We offer a waterfront marina view of boats coming and going on our patio. The other portion of the restaurant is TP Hoolihans which is an authentic Guinness Pub with a touch of the Irish of which there are only about 300 in the country.

     There were many doubters and skeptics when Freedom Boat Club was formed 25 years ago.      The boating-club concept was a visionary innovation, curious novelty and bold gamble all rolled into one. Was the private-club model financially viable? Would it turn out to be a good value for members?...
