By Staff | Jul 20, 2010

Take a 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, participants will 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 two thousand years of Southwest Florida history. 

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

This "Cruise Into The Past" will depart Punta Rassa at 9 a.m. on Friday, July 23 and return to Punta Rassa at 1:30 p.m. Additional information and reservations may be obtained by calling Captiva Cruises at 472-5300.
