BoatThe best way to experience the beaches of Fort Myers is definitely by boat, especially considering many of the most beautiful locations are accessible no other way. There are a variety of charter and sightseeing cruises available, or you can rent your own boat. Just climb on board to visit points inhabited and uninhabited while dolphins playfully swim in your wake.
SailSailing charters are available through several companies. If you're feeling adventurous, rent a catamaran right on the beach. There's even an offshore sailing school from true sailors.
