The Friends of Cayo Costa State Park (FCC), a new citizen support organization focused on protection and improvement for Cayo Costa State Park, will host the trip. The FCC is a division of the Barrier Island Parks Society, and all proceeds from the event go exclusively toward funding project and program needs for Cayo Costa State Park.
The day will feature tours of the island, storytelling by members of the original fishing families, demonstrations and wonderful food. Activities will be held at the state park landing area off Pelican Bay, and beachside near the pavilions and camp ground area.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children under the age of 12. The price includes transportation, all activities and lunch. The event will take place rain or shine. Private boating parties are encouraged to attend and may purchase tickets on the island. Dock space is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. Sponsors for the event include Tropic Star Cruises, Captiva Cruises, Calusa Queen, Kingfisher Fleet, Tarpon Lodge, Pineland and Jug Creek Marina.
