Fort Myers's Most Popular Water Experiences

Fort Myers is an ideal place to rent a boat and do some boating and enjoy other water activities. Here are three of the most popular places to visit while exploring the canals and other waters during your Fort Myers boat rental.

Start at Sirenia Vista Park
This is a small waterfront park with manatee viewing areas, fishing banks, and a place to launch kayaks or paddleboards. Spend some time enjoying the aquatic conditions and then sail your boat to Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve.

Have a Memorable Meal
The Lighthouse Waterfront Restaurant overlooks Connie Mack Island, and it offers soups, fresh seafood dishes, fine steaks, poultry, and popular desserts like Key Lime Pie, as well as views that often feature exotic wildlife like alligators.

Do Some Fishing off Captiva Island
Captiva Island is the ideal place to try out some fishing. You can fish straight from your Fort Myers boat rental or from the docks, beach, or even from one of the piers. There is a wide variety of marine wildlife here such as mackerel, cobia, bass, redfish, snapper, tarpon, as well as many sharks.
