Rafting in Fort Myers

  • Adventure Water Sports Fort Myers
    The gentle clap of paddles against the water and the tenor thrumming of jet-ski motors drift from Adventure Water Sports. On waverunners, diminutive sailboats, and kayaks, patrons spread out across the surf and around Estero Island, their eyes peeled for dolphins and other fauna at all times. The shoreline falls back in quiet bays and estuaries, where little fish dart among tangled knots of mangrove roots. Instructors certified by the United States Coast Guard demonstrate the operation of vessels, lead tours, and knock down sand castles lacking proper fire exits.

  • Native Rentals
    Owner and operator Shawn can trace his family's roots in the local waterways back seven generations. His deep love of the water led him to launch Native Rentals, which conducts eco-friendly paddle tours, and create the Surfer Bus, a renovated school bus that brims with kayaks, surfboards, and any equipment needed for tours on the go. His eco-tours explore the Robinson Preserve, Neal Preserve, and the Anna Maria Sound aboard single or tandem kayaks, standup paddleboards, and bikes, all of which let guests test their muscles without the exorbitant fees of going through Poseidon's booking agent. Enjoy safe and protected paddling while you wrap around tunnels, tidal lakes, and islands. International travel writer and television personality, Richard Bangs, listed Surfer Bus as Bradenton's top family attraction due to the spectacular views of nature and wildlife it offers paddlers navigating the Robinson Nature Preserve.

  • Kayak Excursions
    Situated in the midst of a wildlife-rich preserve on the Lee County coast, Kayak Excursions, based at Bunche Beach, doles out an arsenal of paddleboards and kayaks for fishing, sightseeing, or motorized water-skimming. Guides lead sightseers out on three-hour tours that pass by lush mangrove forests, salt flats, sandy beaches, and sirens holding band practice in secluded coves. The densely populated waters of southwest Florida open their cache of sea candies to wide-eyed fishermen, who can paddle out to cast lines for snapper, cobia, and sea trout with or without a professional guide. Kayak and paddleboard rentals are available by the half-day, full-day, or week.

  • Gulf Coast Kayak
    Gulf Coast Kayak sits on the edge of Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve, a scenic sprawl of estuaries, back bays, and mangrove tunnels roofed by the interlaced branches of waterside trees. Their single and tandem kayaks give paddlers a way to drink up this scenery, instead of waiting on the shore, thumbs-outstretched, hoping to catch a ride from a passing mermaid. Alternatively, paddlers can opt for a guided tour, such as the Sunset Birding Tour, which can afford birdwatchers glimpses of osprey, herons, and spoonbills. For those who cannot make it to their storefront, Gulf Coast Kayak is able to deliver kayaks anywhere in Matlacha or Pine Island for a fee.

  • Conservancy of Southwest Florida

This small group of concerned citizens mobilized the community to halt the project, protecting the land, water, and wildlife that makes southwest Florida beautiful. Today, the group continues that work on a larger scale, promoting clean water in the Everglades, treating and releasing injured animals, and protecting sea turtle hatchlings.
