What is the latest and earliest that you can catch the barge and water taxi to and from the island? Are you allowed to drive the golf carts on the beach? I noticed that the boat rentals are significantly higher than other places closer by, are the prices negotiable? Are there any seafood markets close by? How often are you allowed to exchange towels and is there an extra fee for this. Are you allowed to fish off docks/piers and do you need a Florida fishing license? If you rent a boat can you take it to Sanibel Island and back and how long would that take?
Good Afternoon! These are all great questions. As a rental guest of Palm Island Resort you will want to use the car ferry to access the island. The hours are 6:45 am to 10 pm Sun. to Thursday, until 11 pm on Friday and Midnight on Sat. Golf carts are a fun addition to your stay, but are not allowed directly on the beach. A full service concierge is available to help you with everything else.Did you download the APP? It has a lot of helpful hints too.
I don't know the answers to all of your questions. I'd contact the resort directly. I can tell you that the golf carts are not allowed on the beach. There is the Placida Fish Market and Twin Lobsters for fresh seafood. Each rental unit has a washer and dryer to keep your towels fresh.
The ferry takes you to island, then employees will take you via golf cart to your house and pick you up with just 10 minutes notice. The golf carts are available for rent as well but we did not need one due to good service.
Call the activities desk or see website for fishing information and ferry hours.
