Cruising for Father’s Day Ideas?

Father’s Day is right around the corner (June 19), and if you’re still cruising around Naples in search of just the right tie, golf shirt or grilling set, stop. The Inn on Fifth and Club Level Suites have three magic words that will make the always challenging Father’s Day dilemma a breeze this year – boats, beef and bourbon.

First of all, boats. Casting off from Tin City (1200 Fifth Ave. S.) on the Gordon River, just a short walk down the avenue from the Inn on Fifth, Pure Florida is offering free cruises for dads (when accompanied by paid adult or child admission). The family can relax and enjoy the natural beauty, history and wildlife of Naples aboard the M/V Double Sunshine. The Father’s Day weekend cruises set sail at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., with sunset cruises departing one hour before sunset. For details and reservations, call 239-263-4949 or visit

So where’s the beef and bourbon? Glad you asked.

Whichever departure time you choose, follow up your cruise with a quick stroll to Avenue5 (699 Fifth Ave. S.) for a fabulous Father’s Day feast. On Sunday, June 19, Chef David will be serving up a three-course Sunday Prime Rib Special – a lavish three-course Prime Rib dinner including a choice of lobster bisque, house or Caesar salad; succulent Prime Rib (all Dads receive a complimentary upgrade for the larger cut), served with a loaded baked potato and grilled asparagus, followed by Vanilla Crème Brulee with fresh berries. Then toast the man of the hour with one of Avenue5’s specialty bourbons and whiskeys, and congratulate yourself on giving a Father’s Day gift your dad will truly savor – even more than that new “favorite” tie.
