Fun Activities on the Water
Watersports, Marinas, and Charters in Fort Myers Beach
Think of literally anything you enjoy doing in the water – chances are there’s a place at Fort Myers Beach to help you make a splash. You’ll find secluded beachfront trails, high-octane motorsports, and everything in between. It’s all a short walk or drive from your Fort Myers Beach vacation condo rental.
Perhaps you’re looking to do some boating while you’re here. Fort Myers Beach has an abundance of full-service marinas overlooking cozy Estero Bay. Bring your own boat or rent one. Fish Tale, Moss Marina, Snook Bright, and Salty Sam’s are all popular, fully-loaded marinas. Those who have their own boats and care to make a grand entrance can float down and dock right in. The marinas offer amenities such as boat repair, inspections, and maintenance to make sure your boat is ready whenever you are.
If you’re looking to rent, any of these companies will help you find just the right boat for you. Set sail on an intimate cruise, family outing or larger party. There are also some luxurious marina and resort combos, such as Pink Shell and Matanzas. Lounge around by the pool, jump on your boat for a cruise, then come back for dinner – all from the comfort of one location.
Fort Myers Beach has a bunch of companies with a charter boat and jet ski rentals. Good examples include Holiday Water Sports and All Island Watersports right on Fort Myers Beach, or Bonita Jet-ski and Parasail, located a little south going toward Naples. There’s a ton of action at Bonita, and you’ll find some of our Fort Myers beachside vacation rentals there as well.
These are all well-known Fort Myers Beach water sports providers with great service and state of the art equipment. They have various boats, jet skis, and parasails. Cruise the waves in style on a brand-new powerboat, jetski, banana boat or even sailboats. You can also take off and come back right to the beach when you go kitesurfing, parasailing, and kayaking.
A special treat is the jetski dolphin tours. You can get up close and personal with these friendly locals, glide around and admire them from a distance. Note that the state of Florida has some safety requirements about users operating high powered water vehicles, which may include taking a course online or in person.
If you want to relax and let someone else take the wheel, you’re covered too. Plenty of day trips from Fort Myers Beach charters are available to let you soak in the scenery or do a little fishing without any hassle. There are several deep-sea fishing charters which provide everything you need to get started. Catch some yellowfin tuna or wahoo and maybe spot some dolphins, stingrays, manatees or sharks while you’re out.
You can take private Fort Myers Beach tours, charters, and day trips to the various keys and islands off the coast with Island Time Cruises. Good Time Charters has daily morning, afternoon and sunset dolphin tours. Both these companies = natural environment, flora and fauna, archaeological sites how indigenous people of Florida lived. You will love exploring and then coming back to your Fort Myers Beach vacation rental.
Another interesting boat tour goes to the Everglades National Park. The Florida Everglades is a famous wetland preserve with exotic birds and alligators. It’s the only ecosystem of its kind on Earth! Float through on a boat, pontoon, or take a wild ride on the swamp buggy (think safari truck but for trekking through the mud).
While you’re in the area, take a boat to Jungle Larry’s, a park within the nearby Naples Zoo that’s great for kids. See some animal shows and watch the giraffes, crocodiles, monkeys and more – all from the water. It’s a perfect complement to an Everglades trip before settling into your Fort Myers Beach vacation rental.
With all these options, it can be hard to find your way around. Start by picking one or two things that really stand out to you. Once you’re at your beautiful Fort Myers Beach vacation home, you’ll quickly get ideas for what to do next.
Surf with Fort Myers Beach watersports or take off on a canoe trip from quiet and pristine Bowditch Point or Lovers Key parks. All the attractions are connected by taxi and ferry, so you’ll never be far from what you want to do next.
