FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Sweet Liberty Catamaran, A Naples Florida Must Do!



Recently we were lucky enough to be in sunny and warm Naples Florida. We were looking for something to do besides play golf and swim. You can do that every day but once in awhile it is nice to have a change of pace.

Sweet Liberty is a 51’ catamaran that sails out of Naples harbor. It was still early in the season so there were only 6 of us on the boat. The captain, Mitch, and the crew, Kevin, were professional and very friendly and informative. The boat is well appointed with plenty of cushions and blankets and two bathrooms.

We motored out of the harbor and through some Port Royal inlets that had some of the most phenomenal homes I have ever seen. A statistic that seemed preposterous is that 85% of the homes are vacant on any given day. These are multi-million dollar vacation homes that have to be seen to be believed.

Once we reached the Gulf, Kevin raised the sail and Mitch turned off the motor and we sailed along the coast. The air was brisk and the sailing was terrific. BTW if you are prone to motion sickness, I would recommend Bonine or a similar product.


On the way back into harbor, Kevin spotted some dolphins and Mitch exhibited some stunning piloting as he circled the boat to get back to the dolphins amidst the three other boats vying for glimpses of the dolphins.

The two hour journey was nothing like Gilligan’s Island. It was relaxing and informative, as well as eye opening at the exhibition of wealth in the Port Royal community. As a native and frankly you don’t meet many people who are Naples natives, Mitch had a wealth of information regarding the sights and the community. The price for two was $62.00 which seemed like a bargain for the experience.

I am not an employee and have no financial affiliation of any type with Sweet Liberty, this post is just based on a very pleasant experience.

Dear Mr. Bentrim, "aka: Bearly Tolerable"

I thank you for the link to your blog, as well as the kind words you said about the trip...
More importantly, it was a pleasure meeting you, and shooting the breaze when we did.
I'll be in touch...
