Go to Stocking Island on a Sunday when they cook the hog roast. Spend the day there exploring or pass by in your hire boat and move on after lunch

We had an awesome time over at Stocking Island. We took a ferry from Captain CJ for $15 round trip (per person) and had a great time on the island swimming with the stingrays and relaxing in the sun!
