Fort Myers Water Activities

In Southwest Florida, warm Gulf waters surround you with endless things to do. Find seashells on miles of white-sand beaches, or venture away from shore for fishing and water sports, like kayaking around Sanibel and the barrier islands.

White sand, shells, and room to breathe.

Find the world’s best gifts from the sea.

Navigate the blue water and go where cars can’t.

While there’s little chance of a white Christmas in Florida, you can still be merry and bright!

Rekindle your storybook romance in a place that’s pulled from the pages of a fairy tale. In Fort Myers, each day begins with a soft sea breeze and each night ends with a brilliant sunset making it impossible not to fall in love on our shores.
