Pontoon rentals, charter cruises, and sunset cruises await for those who want to get out on the water and explore the Gulf of Mexico and the inshore waters of Fort Myers and Sanibel. With 20 local marinas, there's a place to launch your craft at every turn. It's up to you to choose which kind of boating experience is best for you and your crew. For collecting seashells on lonely stretches of sand, book a shelling cruise to a remote barrier island. Dolphins are often spotted slicing the smooth waters on sunset cruises, or you can book a dolphin cruise with the sole mission of encountering the animals. If you have some captaining experience, you'll love the independence of skippering your own way around the Gulf and barrier islands by renting a fishing boat or slow-cruising pontoon.
