Southwest Florida’s marinas are a true boater’s paradise, with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, Ten Thousand Islands, and the backwaters of the famed Everglades. In addition to providing boaters access to the Gulf coast from Marco Island to Naples to Sanibel Island, you can purchase or rent dozens of available live aboard slips, enjoy shrimp and fishing charter services, and observe dolphin, manatee, sea turtles, and more on one of the wildlife tours.
