The annual PGSC South Cruise of short destinations (1-3 weeks) will be for boats that would like more destinations and stops and not going to the Florida Keys or Bahamas. The Keys and Bahamas groups are organized to depart on April 6th and planning meetings are scheduled per the email blast. The Alternate South Cruise will start at Pelican Bay and head south to York Island, stops up the Caloosahatchee River, then to Old Fort Myers, on to Fort Myers Beach, Naples, Marco Island with options to Goodland and Everglades City. The cruise will leave Pelican Bay sometime the end of the week of April 6-10 with boats going to Pelican Bay anytime during that week. Details will be decided at the planning meeting.
