"It remains an idyllic tropical paradise that for centuries has attracted writers, artists, musicians, explorers and dreamers with its crystal blue waters, balmy weather, superb cuisine and water activities," she explains, while also defending against the misconception that the waters are a rough ride. "Travel is directly influenced by the weather of any given day. More often than not passengers can expect a smooth, comfortable, enjoyable travel experience."

Go for a Hike
"This preserve includes portions of the headwaters of Yellow Fever Creek, a narrow channel that accumulates shallow water during the wet season. There is 2.5-mile marked trail system at this preserve. A pedestrian entrance is located on Del Prado Boulevard, which provides access to marked hiking trails and includes a small unpaved parking area.
"Part of the northern boundary of this preserve is adjacent to the City of Cape Coral’s Major Park. Eventually, the city plans to develop public facilities, including hiking and equestrian trails, parking, picnic areas, and more. These trails will connect to the trails within the preserve."
Additional Recreation Opportunities (outside of hiking)
- bird watching
- nature study
Go for a Ride
"Thanks to a public/private partnership and years of thoughtful planning, the city has created eight dedicated bike routes with distinctive signage, informational maps and kiosks highlighting the dozens of landmarks, facilities and recreational activities you can take in on your ride."
In addition, in 2016 the Florida Bicycle Association selected the city of Cape Coral for the Bicycle Friendly Community of the Year (2016) Award.
The bicycling experience offers more than 90 miles of interconnected bike routes bordering nature preserves, scenic canals, marinas, golf courses and the expansive Caloosahatchee River.
