The Insider is hosting a Matlacha boat cruise that will dock at Lovegrove Gallery & Gardens, where participants will be greeted by yours truly and be hosted on a VIP tour. It takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on February 24. It’s a one-of-a-kind trip you really don’t want to miss!

The tour starts at the Pure Florida dock in The Marina at Edison Ford in Fort Myers. From there, you will head toward beautiful Pine Island. Along the way you can take photos of the amazing scenery for your scrapbooks or to share on social media.

A marine expert will be on board to educate you about the wildlife.

When you dock at the Lovegrove Gallery & Gardens, I’ll be waiting to greet you and lead you on a VIP tour of my gallery and botanical gardens. The News-Press arts and entertainment reporter Charles Runnells will join us and lead a Q&A discussion of the art you’ll see all around you. After lunch, you will also have a chance to visit some Matlacha businesses within walking distance from the gallery.

Tickets: $80 for INSIDERS/$95 for non-INSIDERS, and lunch is included. BUY TICKETS NOW!
