Tarpon Lodge can be thought of as a superbly-appointed historic resort. The balcony views of our room (on the Island House building) were breathtaking vistas of Pine Island Sound. The room itself had “double A/C” and an extremely comfortable queen size bed. The Lodge offers charter boats- skiffs and center consoles- with some of the best capatins around, all this on private docks mere steps from our room. The docks accomodate private boaters who dine at their wonderful Restaurant and Bar.
Each of the days I fished, i enjoyed an excellent complmentary breakfast in the morning and a refreshing dip in the pool when my day was over. Of additional note is the stupendous amouts of birdlife and eco-tour options at Tarpon Lodge. This is a must-see, must-stay resort that works wonders from family fun-types to hardcore travelrs.
