Just wondering if anyone could help us to decide between these two destinations. We have found great rentals in both places that are available for us in May but are struggling to decide. We quite like the idea of renting a boat in Cape Coral and have it docked at our rental but the beaches of Anna Maria look amazing. We would love to see dolphins and manatees in their natural environment and quite like the idea of shelling but not sure how far Anna Maria is from Captiva or Sanibel where shelling is supposed to be at its best.
Any help would really be appreciated, thank you
