Rent a kayak and take a paddling adventure!
Charter our catamaran to help you reach pristine hideaways of natural, Old Florida beauty like the riverside of Ding Darling Wildlife Reserve, Punta Blanca, and Macintire Creek. These wonderful sanctuaries are accessable by boat only. Use the Old Glory as your mothership for setting off on a shallow water expedition of our area's most peaceful, unspoiled ecosystems.
We can arrange a special kayak rental service for the coastal Fort Myers and Cape Coral area. Or, bring your own kayaks with you to the marina and we'll help you load them aboard the boat when you arrive.
J. N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge
Charter the Old Glory for the day and sail to the J. N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, located on the subtropical barrier island of Sanibel in the Gulf of Mexico. The refuge is part of the largest undeveloped mangrove ecosystem in the United States. It is world famous for its spectacular migratory bird populations.
Access to the waters surrounding the islands that make up the J. N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge is by boat only.
Exploring this quiet sanctuary by kayak can be an exciting adventure, or just a good workout immersed in the beauty of Natural Florida. Paddle your way past the mangroves, taking time to explore the shallow creeks and small inlets. Stop for a moment and drift along, listen for the distinctive cry of the Osprey, or the splash of a mullet falling back into the water after taking a quick peek topside.
Caloosahatchee National Wildlife Refuge
The Caloosahatchee National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), administered as a satellite refuge of J.N. "Ding" Darling NWR, is located in Lee County on the Caloosahatchee River within the city of Fort Myers. Originally, the Caloosahatchee refuge consisted of several mangrove islands.
However, shoreline development, dredging of the river, and construction of the I-75 bridge has changed the physical arrangement and appearance of these islands. Access to the waters surrounding the islands that make up Caloosahatchee NWR is by boat only.
Explore Punta Blanca Bay by kayak. The paddle is estimated to be 6-8 miles on beautiful waters lined with mangroves. Plenty of wildlife to see along the way!
