We stay at Cape Coral almost every year on summer vacation. If you do so, be sure not to miss Todd Kunzelmann's Island Seafood Market. Absolutely fresh and tasty seafood. Put it on your grill and be happy. We absolutely LOVE the snapper.

The market is not open on Christmas Eve or day, best to order early in the week to see if they have what you want. This way you will be getting fresh fish and clams. Won’t sell either if any Red Tide near the beds. Stop... More
