was at bananna beach for carnivale and jerry jeff concerts. the staff at bananna beach is wonderful ! the view from a beach front room is so soothing too. the pork chop dinner is especially good, I guess i could go on and on missing it already, made some great friends with many locals, if your looking to make your own day trip see earnest there, the boat is bare bones but you can plan the day. we went to key caulker and rented a cart to see island, had lunch, then on the way back snorkeled the wall and also did some fishing and had fresh conch ceviche.All for a resonable cost.the memories are priceless!
