Everyone knows that beaches are Lee County’s number one outdoor attraction. But it can be so much more than a trip to the beach. For people who want to do something a little more active than lying in the sand or stooping over to pick up seashells, the area has plenty of outdoor physical activities. Fort Myers Beach is all about water. There are numerous marinas, charter boat rentals, jet ski rentals, parasailing, kayaking, and canoe rentals, fishing charters, dolphin tours, and a lot more.


The waters around Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel offer some of the greatest fishing in Florida. Purchase a nonresident license and you can fish from the public pier at Lynn Hall Memorial Park on Fort Myers Beach, or the Lighthouse at the eastern tip of Sanibel.


Charter boats are easily found on Fort Myers Beach. You can rent your own boat or charter one with a captain. Half day and full day rentals are available at reasonable prices.

My High Tide Luxury Charters

6095 Black Marlin Lane
Cape Coral FL 33914
C Dock Slip 89

  • They specialize in creating and delivering offshore luxury experiences at affordable prices. They cater to individuals, couples, families and social groups, and are dedicated to making sure everyone experiences the ocean in luxury and style.


Southwest Florida has great weather for cycling – warm temperatures, no ice or snow – but it lacks the big thigh-burning hills that excite many serious cyclists.

The county offers several long bike paths, the best of which might be the Summerlin path, which runs southwest from Fort Myers near the Midpoint Memorial Bridge to the Sanibel Causeway.

If you want to go off-road, try the mountain-bike trail at the Caloosahatchee Regional Park in Alva.


Serious canoeists and kayakers know that Southwest Florida has some of the best paddling water anywhere.

You can throw your paddlecraft in virtually any water body – river, stream, creek, estuary – and have a great day.

Or you can check out the Great Calusa Blue Way, a 100 mile marked paddling trail that meanders through Estero Bay then to Sanibel, Captiva, Matlacha Pass, and Pine Island Sound.

Contact Distinctive Beach Rentals, at 239-898-7370, for kayak rentals. We have ½ day and full day rates. All kayaks are delivered to your desired point of departure and picked up upon your return.


Lee County doesn’t bill itself as a scuba diving destination – if you want to dive, people say, go to the Keys – but local Gulf waters offer great diving opportunities.

Although we don’t have any coral reefs, we do have many natural limestone ledges that are full of life.

Much of the seafloor is barren sand, so the Lee County Division of Natural Resources has created artificial reefs on 20 sites that range from four to 30 miles offshore in 30 to 90 feet of water.

Two popular local wrecks for divers are the Bay Ronto, a 400-foot British freighter that sank in a 1919 hurricane 32 miles west of Boca Grande Pass, and the Fantastico, a 200-foot Honduran freighter that foundered in the No Name Storm of 1993 about 48 miles southwest of Fort Myers Beach.

None of these sites has the colorful tropical fish of the Keys, but they do hold large number of many fish species.


Depending on meteorological conditions, windsurfing/kiteboarding season in Southwest Florida runs from late December through April because that’s when the fronts move through – during the rest of the year, the wind is depressingly calm, though the occasional tropical storm or hurricane can whip up some wind and excitement. Lessons are available from Ace Adventures on McGregor Blvd., Fort Myers for those who might want to start a new hobby or rent some equipment.

Note: All properties rented by Distinctive Beach Rentals have a minimum age requirement. Two persons in the rental party must be over the age of 30 in order to rent.


The following courses are open to the public at least some portion of the year, if not the entire year. Contact courses for current rates.
