Tours We Recommend You Take

Edison and Ford Winter Estates

Edison and Ford Winter Estates offers several different river cruises. Tour the Estates first before walking to the Marina and take a relaxing cruise down the Caloosahatchee River. You will get to see everything from mangroves and river islands to bird rookeries on your way upriver. There is a narration that gives information on the local ecology and history. Be sure to bring your camera because there will likely be some wildlife making appearances!

Good Time Charters

Good Time Charters will take you out on a tranquil trip across the waters during sunset. While you are on board, a naturalist guide will tell you all about the local seabirds, dolphins, and manatees. You will also get the chance to stop and go shelling as the sun sets on the horizon. This trip takes about three hours, and if you do need to cancel, you can do so for free up to 24 hours in advance. These charters are wheelchair and stroller accessible so that everyone can enjoy the trip. Afterward, you can return to your Fort Myers Beach rentals and relax.
