What to know about hiring a boat in Cape Coral

If you want to enjoy Cape Coral on the water, hiring a boat, kayak or embarking on a fishing tour is a great way to experience all that this city has to offer. From a boat, you can explore the miles of canals surrounded by plants and wildlife, cruise around in the open water of the Gulf, or drop a line to catch some fish in the ocean. For the sporty vacationer, you can paddle around the mangroves in a kayak. There’s an abundance of options for boat hires. From small power boats to pontoons, chartered fishing tours, small power boats to jet ski hires, and endless choices for watersports, Cape Coral has it all. Visit Fort Myers Beach for a day, park your boat at one of more than 40 waterside restaurant for a seaside lunch, and watch the breathtaking sunset from the water. The hot, sunny temperatures and mild winds make Cape Coral a perfect destination to enjoy by boat.

While you can visit Cape Coral at any time of the year to enjoy the water and hire a boat, the late summer and early autumn months are the best times to go. You'll avoid the tourist crowds September-November. March tends to be the peak busy season during the weeks of Spring Break vacations. The summer months of June-August have the highest amount of rainfall and can be uncomfortably hot.

Captiva Island is an excellent destination in Cape Coral for fishing. You can cruise there on your own for a day of great catches; Bass, Snapper, Mackerel, and many more.

Boca Grande is also an excellent choice for fishing, as it is host to many fishing tournaments and has a large tarpon population.

A great day trip that will help you get the most out of your boat hire is a stop at Cayo Costa. It's a protected state park that is only accessible by private boat or ferry. Its pristine, white sandy beaches and sparkling blue waters make it the perfect stop for nature lovers who want to escape the rowdy crowds. Park your boat for a day of swimming, snorkeling, surfing, and nature walks in this special spot.

    Yamaha vx Jet Skis for Rent anywhere in SWFL

    Kurt is really easy to work with and accommodating with his customers. He scheduled pick up and drop off times that worked with our schedule. When we ran into mechanical troubles, he came over to troubleshoot and brought a different jet ski when ours needed to be looked at in more detail. Overall a great experience despite the hiccups. I would highly recommend Kurt and would use him again for future rentals
