Register now for special ‘Cruise Into The Past’

By Staff | Jun 4, 2010

In cooperation with Captiva Cruises and The Mound House Cultural Resources Center, a special cruise — dubbed "Cruise Into The Past" – will depart Punta Rassa at 9 a.m. on Friday, June 18 and return at 1:30 p.m. 

Cruise to the historic mound house on Estero Bay, where Theresa Schober, Director of Cultural Resources, will conduct a tour and sneak peak of their new underground archeological exhibit.  Along the way, learn about the dynamic history and ecology of Punta Rassa, Pine Island Sound and Estero Bay.

This new exhibit at The Mound House offers a rare opportunity to walk in an actual Calusa shell mound to observe its construction, its layers and to see this cross section of over a thousand years of Southwest Florida history. 

Reservations are required as space is limited. Cost for this unique opportunity is $45 per person, which includes a donation to The Mound House Cultural Resources Center. 

Additional information and reservations may be obtained by calling Captiva Cruises at 472-5300.
