Watersports on Sanibel and Captiva Islands

Sanibel Island watersports start with getting the right equipment. For those who enjoy yachting and sailing, the Sanibel Marina and Port Sanibel will both provide facilities for pleasure craft. For those who like a more personal relationship between themselves and the water, there are businesses on the islands that will rent equipment such as jet skis and other small motor craft. Exploring the islands and Sanibel watersports from the ocean is one of the most popular and gratifying activities in the area. The island’s pristine waterways ensure that the experience is always the most exciting and beautiful possible.

Sanibel Island Marina is more welcoming than the average slip facility. While many such marinas are very exclusive affairs, the Sanibel Island Marina welcomes all, whether they arrive on a 50 foot yacht or a wave runner. Port Sanibel Marina is the same and anyone who decides to make their way to the island by water or to engage in watersports once they’re on the island will find all the facilities welcoming and ready. The marinas monitor radio traffic on specific frequencies during certain hours so be sure to check ahead before making one’s way to any of the island’s docking facilities.

Sanibel Island is famous for the environmental-consciousness of its residents. To that end, Yolo Watersports offers visitors modes of transportation that are both fun and friendly to the island environs. One can rent wave runners, popular Sanibel watersports, from this business and get out on the waves for some wild adventures. The company devotes a lot of its time to keeping the island clean, volunteering for the various trash pick-ups and beautification projects that bring many of the islanders together. The company also rents land transportation including scooters and scooter coupes. The former require motorcycle experience on the part of the customer.

Anyone visiting the various Sanibel marina facilities or renting watersports equipment on the island should be aware of local concerns and regulations. Harassing dolphins or manatees is specifically prohibited by the law and carries heavy penalties. There are areas of water where speed is limited by law. This is to protect the manatee population. These ocean herbivores graze in shallow waters, close to the surface. The number one killers of these gentle creatures are boat propellers. The local businesses and marinas will have information on how to enjoy Sanibel watersports and the environment while helping to keep the wildlife safe and healthy.
