Marco Island, Florida: Trip Report
Jump to:

We were going to go to Cozumel or Cancun to do a little scuba diving with the kids but when an opportunity appeared to take a private jet to Marco Island came up I couldn't say no.

The experience was definitely amazing. Flying a private jet and not dealing wit TSA security and fighting crowds at the airport is definitely worth paying more for, just not sure it's worth THAT much more. We pulled up to the special terminal, were greeted by the pilot. Someone grabbed our luggage and took it to the plane. Then when we were all ready to go we walked just a few steps to where the plane was parked and found our very comfy seats.

Marco Island was not on my list of places to visit but since I'd never been there it seemed interesting. The clincher is that I found a nice friendly dive shop where my daughter could do her checkout dives to be a certified scuba diver.
