If you’re looking for a summertime getaway, the sunny, warm, gorgeous Florida summer days make it just the place. Fort Myers Beach has plenty for you and your group or family to do to make a perfect summertime excursion. You’ll enjoy plenty of beach time and time relaxing around your rental, but you’ll also find that the area is full of activities that will keep you busy during your stay.
Fishing is a sport that’s fun and easy for people of all ages and skill levels. There are many companies that charter fishing trips out of the Fort Myers Beach area. Choose from inshore, nearshore, fly fishing, or an exciting deep-sea fishing adventure. Keep your catch and grill it up for lunch or dinner. If you’re not interested in a charter, rent some gear and head down to the beach. Cast a line close to shore and see what’s biting as you relax with the waves rolling against your bare feet.
Adventures in Paradise
If you’re ready for an adventure during your summer getaway, Adventures in Paradise Outfitters has plenty to choose from. From sea life encounters where you can get up close with pufferfish, seahorses, starfish, and more to fishing for jack, mackerel, and spotted sea trout, there’s a marine adventure in Fort Myers Beach for you. Go for a dolphin and marine wildlife spotting tour, shelling, or take their tour of the many marine points of interest of the area.
Stand Up Paddleboarding
Stand up paddleboarding, or SUP, is a water activity that will keep you busy for hours in the summer waters of the Gulf. Take lessons or rent some gear and strike out on your own. Some places will even provide a full ground lesson, including proper paddling techniques, basic water safety, and safe-boating practices. Paddle along the calm waters of inland lakes or try your hand close to shore in the Gulf. There is a paddleboard adventure to fit everyone in your group.
The major attraction of a beach vacation for summer in Florida is, of course, the beach. Grab your cooler, sunscreen, and beach gear and head down to the sand of Fort Myers Beach. There are plenty of beach activities, from just laying out and soaking up the sun, to splashing in the surf, building sand castles, or taking an undersea adventure like snorkeling or SCUBA diving. Whether you spend the whole trip, a day, or just a few hours, the beach is calling to be part of your stay.
Soar high above the water on a summertime parasail excursion. You can choose to wear comfortable clothes or beat the heat and wear your swimsuit and take a little dip in the Gulf during your flight. If you can sit, you can parasail! Lone sailors must be at least 90 pounds to ride safely alone, but there is room for three riders at a time in the harnesses. The custom parasail boats with large take off/landing deck are coast guard approved for everyone’s safety. You’ll be required to sign a waiver before participation, and you’ll need to wear a life jacket during your ride. Friends can come watch without sailing, but space may be limited by the number of customers going airborne.
Sun Splash Family Waterpark
If you want to cool off and ride some awesome water slides while doing it, take a quick jaunt to Sun Splash Family Waterpark in Cape Coral. Take a lazy tube ride around their lazy river, take the kids to Pirate’s Cove, or enjoy any of their other water slides and attractions. Walk the Sand Dollar Walk, hang out in the family pool, or even play a game of sand volleyball. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen!
There are several companies in the Fort Myers Beach area that offer SCUBA diving experiences. Explore the marine wreckage and coral reefs of the area. Beginners can learn from certified instructors and go on an easy dive while those with a little more experience can dive deeper. If you and your friends would rather choose your own diving adventures, rent some gear, and set out on your own.
