Water Activities

Getting out on the water conjures different images for everyone… the slow pace of a canoe, the excitement of offshore fishing, the relaxation of a sunset sail. Whatever your idea of fun is, Sanibel and Captiva Islands provide lots of ways to make your dreams come true.


Have you ever gone parasailing? Now’s your chance! Parasailing is fun, surprisingly peaceful, and something almost everyone can do. Perhaps you’d enjoy taking an excursion to the out-islands or renting your own powerboat. Paddling a canoe or kayak through Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge is a peaceful way to see island wildlife. The choices are many – don’t miss getting out on the water to truly experience island life.
