The Cape is also home to numerous boating marinas and ramps,

…so you always have easy access to the water no matter where in the city you live.

If you are ready for an excellent Cape Coral boating experience you’ll find that there are many places to set sail from.

Some of these include, but are not limited to:

  • Yacht Club Boat Ramp
  • Dolphin Marina
  • Burnt Store Boat Ramp
  • Everest Marina
  • BMX Boat Ramp
  • Tarpon Point Marina
  • Horton Boat Ramp
  • Cape Harbour Marina
  • Rosen Park Boat Ramp
  • Stumps Pass Marina

The Chiquita Boat Lock is another great amenity many residents take full advantage of when cruising the waters.

Located approximately 2.75 statute miles from the Sanibel Causeway Bridge, this lock provides access to the Gulf of Mexico from Camelot Canal and the Southwest Spreader Waterway, via the Caloosahatchee River.

This lock is operated by the Marine Services Division of the Cape Coral Parks and Recreation Department to help manage boat traffic and water levels.

It is the only boat lock in Cape Coral, and it is open 16 hours a day, from 6 am – 10 pm.

After-hour boaters can call the lock operator to gain admission, 239.542.5661.

This lock takes approximately 3-5 minutes to get through, and holds up to 6 vessels depending on the size: up to 75’ with an 18’ beam.

If you just want to go fishing, there are over 250 freshwater fish and a good number of saltwater fish as well.

Hopefully your Cape Coral boating experience is everything you dream it can be.
