On your way to Sanibel Island there are several small islands on the causeway that you may stop and enjoy the beach, or picnic or swim. They are free.

Enjoyed our first trip kayaking in this area, but found the maps I received thru the mail to be misleading, Was not able to find Mound Key with these maps, it was further southeast than indicated on the map. Ended up circling an un- named key near by. Should have gone to google earth before heading out.

One of the most wonderful experiences that Southwest Florida has to offer is its unique flora and fauna, birds, dolphin, manatee and more. There is no better way to eco-experience the water, and Lee County Parks & Rec has done a tremendous job of creating and maintaining these canoe and kayak routes, which can be tricky in the powerboat-dominant waterways....

The view is to say the least spectacular. Add to that a few dolphins a lot of pelicans plus many other birds and it is worth the $6 to get over there

If you enjoy paddling through miles of quiet mangoves with lots of wildlife on land, in the water, and in the air, this is the place to be.

The Calusa Blueway is excellent at all points. Do be aware that not all the "put in" points shown on their map are available & at County put-ins the parking lot can be very far from the water. But once you hit the water -- great fun!!
