Special packages include:

Lemon Tree Inn, a boutique hotel in Naples, Florida, offers a Gator Getaway that brings Dads up close and personal with the Everglades and all the creatures that live in this National Park. Alligators, crocodiles, sharks and more than 400 species of birds and dozens of endangered species call this part of the world home. The Gator Getaway packages offers a scenic four-hour kayaking excursion through the Everglades with the experienced and trained team of professional guides from Everglades Area Tours, an outfitter based in Everglades City approximately 35 minutes from Naples, Florida. The two-night package for two-people includes accommodations and a kayaking excursion through the Everglades.

Montauk Yacht Club Resort & Marina is reeling Dads in with the 27th Annual Shark Tournament taking place on June 14-15. Cash prizes will be awarded for the heaviest shark each day and tournament-wide. The top three prizes will also be awarded for the Heaviest Mako, Heaviest Blue Shark and Heaviest Shark of other species.

In 2012, more than $550,000 in cash and prizes were paid out to the winners. In addition to this exciting competition, all anglers can help contribute to marine life study by tagging, and then releasing, sharks back into the ocean that do not meet strict weight requirements. Such tags will allow researchers and conservationists to better understand the sharks’ habits and migration patterns, without causing any harm to the sharks. Last year, more than 250 sharks were released back into the ocean. Of the sharks that were weighed in, more than 750 pounds of edible shark meat was donated to the Long Island Council of Churches’ food pantry to help feed those in need.

Entry fee is $1,000 per boat. Those who register before April 15 will be eligible for a chance to win a $500 gift certificate from the Star Island ship’s store. Montauk Yacht Club has accommodations available starting at $499 per room, per night and slip rates for this weekend are $5.50 per foot, 40 foot minimum. Dockage is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information, please visit http://www.montaukyachtclub.com or call 888-MYC-8668.
