Lunch on the island.

Believed to be the inspiration behind Jimmy Buffet’s song, “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” Cabbage Key is a classic “old Florida” hide-a-way. The island has an Inn and Restaurant, built in 1938 by American playwright Mary Roberts Rinehart. The restaurant, which sits on top of a Calusa Indian shell mound, offers panoramic views of the island and Pine Island Sound as well as delicious seafood, steaks, cheeseburgers and desserts. The walls are lined with signed dollar bills… Ask your captain how the tradition got started! There is also a short nature trail and water tower to climb. The boat returns to the marina at 3pm.

Price: $50 (plus a $5 per vehicle parking fee) Lunch separate.
