If there is significant interest in this trip, we may need to select a second local restaurant that meets our needs and expectations.
In the late afternoon, we’ll lure you from your chairs with dinner at the waterfront Casey Key Fish House and Tiki Bar in nearby Osprey, FL, which will close to the public to accommodate us.
A modern concession serves only fresh, made-to-order food worthy of the short wait you'll experience. There are also recently built restrooms, covered picnic pavilions, and simple old-fashion picnic tables under the shade of waterfront trees.
Oh yeah…there is the peaceful, quiet beach and crystal clear water awaiting your pleasure. To ensure your safety, there are lifeguards year round. (Unfortunately, they tend to rescue girls under age 25 first.)
Or you can set up a chair with a good book and occasionally look up to watch boats pass by and see dolphins and large rays jumping in the inlet.
Some serious fishing happens in the Venice Inlet. There is a bait shop on site if you’d like to bring your rod and join these anglers. Just be sure your catch can be stored on ice below the bus--out of aromatic range!
North Jetty Park at Nokomis may be one of the most relaxing, back-to-nature beaches we’ve ever offered you. How does 5 hours of total relaxation in a beautiful setting on the Gulf appeal to you? Since there is nothing commercial to distract you, the rest of the world will feel many miles away. As you can see, this park facing the Gulf is lined by a channel leading from the intercoastal waterway to the Gulf.
We gave you a sneak peek at Nokomis last year,
leaving you seeking a full day there.
On May 18th, we’ll grant your wish!

This will only need to be done one time; not yearly as in the past. Please click on link below, print and sign, and give the form to your bus leader on this trip.
