Sweet Liberty

These Naples sunset cruises have received attention from the New York Times, locals, and many Southwest Florida bloggers for the last two decades as one of the top local attractions. The crew members pride themselves on creating the most comfortable experience possible. Visitors are invited to bring a small cooler or picnic basket with food and beverage of choice.

The cruise takes about 30-40 minutes each way. Not only will you be able to enjoy the sunset, but there are many beautiful mangroves, hosting a variety of wildlife, along the way. It will indeed be an evening to remember! 

Prices are $40 for ages 13 and up, $20 for children ages 4 to 12, and free for children 3 and under. 

Naples Catamaran

The Naples 48′ Catamaran provides a comfortable and luxurious means of exploring the Gulf. Sunset cruises travel through Naples Bay and Port Royal and conclude with an unforgettable sunset. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the elusive “Green Flash,” a beam of green light that shoots across the sky at sunset. 

Along the way, kick back and relax under shade or on the open deck with various snacks, a selection of beer, wine, soda, and water. Learn about the local wildlife and ecosystems through a custom-narrated tour. 

Tours cost $34.50 for adults and $14.50 for children 3 to 11. Sightseeing and Beach Shelling tours are also available.

Pure Naples

Pure Naples offers 1.5 hours tours aboard the Double Sunshine, so named after the water’s reflection at sunset. Your tour will include popular sights of wildlife, mansions, stories of Naples’ colorful history, and evening lights of the river. Drinks are available onboard. 

After sunset, the ship will sail back to Tin City while playing the lazy tunes of Jimmy Buffet. You’ll see the homes and riverside illuminated by evening lights. After disembarking, there are plenty of restaurants and shops in the area to continue the evening fun.

Cool Beans Cruises

The Champagne Sunset Tour sets sail two hours before sunset. It offers all the natural beauty of the Gulf, alongside a great selection of beverages.
