Boating is a great way to practice social distancing and get out and safely enjoy some fresh air during the COVID-19 outbreak. And luckily, several waterfront restaurants are open for dockside pickup, so you can grab some food and have a great meal while you cruise. (Bonus: you are also helping local businesses!)

What better way to social distance and support local businesses than to be out on the water and enjoy some delicious food? We’ve compiled a list of local restaurants around Southwest Florida that are available for takeout. All you have to do is pull up to the dock, grab your food, and enjoy.
