Sanibel Island’s Most Popular Experiences

Sanibel Island can be a good place to do some fishing. Here are three of the most popular places to fish in Sanibel Island.

Captiva Island
Captiva Island is the ideal place for ocean fishing. You can choose to fish straight from your Sanibel Island boat rental around the docks, the beach, and even around the piers, or you can dock the boat and try fishing from the beach.

Sirenia Vista Park
This is a small waterfront park not too far from Sanibel Island. It has manatee viewing areas, convenient fishing banks, and a place where you can launch your boat. From the park, you can also paddle the mangroves and gain access to the Calusa Blueway.
