Kayak Launch Sites and Rentals

Cape Coral Kayaking

Kayak Launch - The list of launches for all you kayaking enthusiasts, here in Cape Coral and nearby in Matlacha and Ft Myers.

We are so lucky to have fantastic boating and kayaking in the Cape.

We have miles of canals, lakes, the Caloosahatchee River, estuaries filled with wildlife, and barrier islands such as Sanibel and Captiva, for exploring.

Between Cape Coral and Pine Island is Matlacha Pass, perfect for kayak eco tours and fishing!

Shallow blue-green waters, inlets amongst the mangroves, an abundance of fish, and manatee and dolphin sightings will entice you to get paddling!

There are 2 kayak launches in the NW Cape, plus kayak rentals and launches at Eco Park and The Resort at Marina Village.

Sirenia Vista

Sirenia Vista Park is new for 2012 and is located on the corner of Ceitus Pkwy and Old Burnt Store Rd in NW Cape Coral.

They have a really nice kayak launch, port-a-pots, plenty of parking, picnic tables, and a fishing pad at a very lovely spot on the North Spreader Canal, which leads out to Matlacha Pass, smaller rivers and inlets through the mangroves or through smaller canals.

The canal on the other side of the park from the fishing pad is a popular spot for manatees during winter.

Plans are in the works to build a boardwalk, manatee educational center, kayak storage, and improved parking and utilities.

As a matter of fact, there are only mangroves across from the launch, so this spot is pretty wild and just gorgeous. The park is open from sunrise to sunset.

Tropicana Launch

If you continue up either Old Burnt Store Or Burnt Store Rd, go west on Tropicana Pkwy, follow it all the way to the end and you'll come to another Cape Coral kayak launch site.

It's new for 2012 and as of yet is unimproved, there are no bathrooms or paved parking, but is still a great spot to go kayaking from the North Spreader Canal, and through smaller canals, or through inlets in the mangroves.

Eco Park

There are kayak rentals and a launch at Eco Park, located near the Midpoint Bridge.

You can rent kayaks between November - March and paddle down a canal to a portage trail where you then carry the kayak down a boardwalk to access small rivers through mangroves that lead out to Four Mile Cove and the Caloosahatchee River.

Tarpon Point Marina

You can also launch your kayak or rent one from one of the best of the Cape Coral marinas, Tarpon Point Marina.

Tarpon Point is located at the the end of Rose Garden Blvd, off of Cape Coral Pkwy at Marina Village Resort.

Most of your paddling will be in open waters, you can go a ways up a small river, up the canal that leads to Cape Harbour, or out on the Caloosahatchee.

We did a kayaking scavenger hunt put on by the resort and had a blast!

Venture Out

Venture Out has a boat launch and kayak rentals, along with fishing charters ............ they're located at Cape Harbour.

From Venture Out, you have access to canals and the Caloosahatchee.

We haven't rented kayaks from them, but used them for a fishing charter and they were very nice and helpful.

If you want to venture out of Cape Coral, another place to launch is the D&D Marina, the same spot where you can take the airboat tours, just before you go over the bridge onto Matlacha Island, and not far at all from Pine Island and Burnt Store Rds.

Further down and over the bridge is Gulf Coast Kayak, where you can rent kayaks and canoes, and take tours.

Or you can go to Manatee Park Ft Myers, where they have kayak rentals and a launch on the Orange River.

If you go during the winter months, you will probably see lots of manatees, since they go to the warmer waters of the river that time of year.

As you can see, some of the best Southwest Florida kayak rentals and launches are right here in the Cape Coral area. I hope you take the time to enjoy!
