We put our boat in at this Marina and found the staff very helpful advice on how to get to Cabbage Key. They also gave us good advice on navigating the shallow channel to the river. It can be confusing and you must obey the head speed so it takes a while to hit the open water. The parking area is large enough to accommodate visitors with boat trailers. Hint: there is a great restaurant at the entrance as well. Hint: If you choose to rent a boat be sure to tell the staff how many you intend to take and how far you are going. This makes it easier for them to match the right boat for your cruise...go for the all day rental and visit Ft Myers Beach as well.
