Holiday Water Sports of Fort Myers Beach equips adventurous pairs with sturdy tandem watercraft. After saddling up on their paddle-powered water-steeds, excursionists will venture forth into the placid waters of the gulf, where for a hefty four hours they can maneuver through mangrove-hemmed waterways or close their eyes and fantasize about floating atop marshmallow fluff. If paddlers keep their eyes peeled, they may spot some of the myriad aquatic wildlife that inhabits the surrounding area, including dolphins and manatees.
From November 3–6, rent a two-person vessel to slap paddles in solidarity at the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Festival, which features demonstrations, guided trips, a film festival and more.

From a distance, the manatees, dolphins, and bald eagles that populate Estero Island make quite an impression. But the staff at Holiday Water Sports of Fort Myers Beach believes up-close encounters are not only the sole way to determine if the animals can talk, but also the best way to enjoy them. To that end, they guide tours and rent out myriad watercraft, from Yamaha 4 waverunners and 10-passenger pontoon boats to paddle bikes, which resemble oversized tricycles as they surge through nimbuses of sea foam. The staff hoists parasailers over their water-bound peers, letting out up to 1,200 feet of slack and allowing riders to plunge into free falls with houses and piers blurring into a cubist painting beneath them. Captains certified by the United States Coast Guard guide the ships back toward the sun-bleached sands, where the company’s rental umbrellas rustle in the breeze above lounge chairs.
