Our friendly and informative staff are there to make your Double Sunshine experience a great memory – and even a repeat in the future with family and out of town guests. After parking your car you will find our office at the entrance to TIN CITY. Picking up your tickets there, we will direct you to the vessel located right beside Pinchers Crab Shack Restaurant where our Captain and crew will welcome you aboard. Feel free to purchase drinks and snacks before sitting down to enjoy your Dolphin Watch / Sightseeing or Sunset Cruise. Feel the warm breeze. Watch the antics of pesky pelicans and hear the seagulls as they soar overhead. Your captain will let you know that it is time to take your seats with a short safety message before he blows the one long and three short blasts of the ships horn for departure. Once you are underway, the commentary begins about the history of Naples, wildlife, ecology and the beautiful mansions that line the banks of the Gordon River and its canal arms.
You might even have the luck of seeing the Green Flash!
If you have chosen the Sunset Cruise, your captain will stop the vessel at sea for a few moments to allow you to watch our glorious sunset – the reflection on the water having given your vessel its name of Double Sunshine. Once the sun has dropped over the horizon of the Gulf of Mexico, you will see the beautiful colors in the sky and you can take photos to remember your experience. You will return to your departure point at Tin City to the lazy tunes of Jimmy Buffet, see the city, the homes and river side as lights come on. Then stay around Tin City for the restaurants and shops to add to the memory of your cruise and something special to take home.
