Cruiser Appreciation Day


    All Welcome at 12th Annual Celebration

    For the 12th year in a row, the Town of Fort Myers Beach and the Anchorage Advisory Committee will celebrate the cruising public that dock in the Town’s mooring field in the back bay. This year’s Cruiser Appreciation Day will be held on Saturday, April 6 from noon to 3pm in the waterfront courtyard at Matanzas on the Bay, 414 Crescent Street, Fort Myers Beach and everyone is invited to attend.

    The event will feature free admission for all, barbeque, live entertainment, drinks, door prizes, giveaways and friendly island hospitality. This year’s menu items include Smoked Ribs and Caribbean Pork Shank with sides, Smoked Fish Dip with chips, Dave’s Dockside Pizza, soft drinks, water and beer. All available at reasonable prices.

    Crossing the Sky Bridge to Fort Myers Beach offers a bird’s eye view of our mooring field. This event is an opportunity to meet and mingle with mooring field patrons, learning about their vessels, extensive travels and our mooring field. Boaters renting a mooring ball on the day of the event will receive a free lunch.

    The Fort Myers Beach mooring field provides 70 mooring balls available for rental year-round at $18/day, $103/week or $312/month. The rental fee includes use of shower and laundry facilities and vessel pump-out service. A public dinghy dock is available for public use to tie up dinghies 10’ or less (no overnight tie-ups). The Town’s mooring field is very popular and highly acclaimed by boaters throughout Florida.
