Island Beach Monkeys

Be Safe This Weekend, Take the Monkey Bus!

| Sande Caplin |

This is a follow up story from March, 2015.  Island Beach Monkeys is bigger & better than ever.  A group of my friends had a chance to use their services last Friday….a bus, a golf cart and an SUV- all in one night.  Be safe this Memorial Day Weekend.  If you’re on Anna Maria Island, Cortez or Bradenton Beach, dont drive- hop on the Monkey Bus.

March 2015- Island Beach Monkeys is a free transportation service serving Anna Maria Island, Bradenton Beach and Holmes Beach.  Their fleet  is available to drive you wherever you want to go. Want a ride to dinner? Need to run errands? Want a tour of Anna Maria? Their team of friendly drivers is at your service!

Their fleet includes an 8 passenger Golf Cart Limo, two mini-buses, and an SUV.  Island residents and visitors no longer need to worry about catching the last trolley, as their drivers are available well after the last trolley has left the Island.  And unlike the trolley, their vehicles can cross all the bridges, meaning you are not limited to the Island.  They can go to Siesta Key, Cortez, Downtown Bradenton, and even the Ellenton Outlet mall.  You can pre-book trips all over the Tampa Bay and Sarasota area.

The Monkey Bus

Best of all, their services are free. The drivers work for tips only! All of their crew are Island residents.  They can offer a wealth of information about Island businesses, dining choices, sights, and special events.  And the fleet is fun.  They even have a karaoke-equipped vehicle

They also offer advertising opportunities for local businesses and services.   Island Beach Monkeys offers services to groups, individuals, and special events.  They can provide transportation for weddings, parties, and festivals, as well as for everyday type trips.  All of the drivers and vehicles are fully licensed and insured.
