If you're traveler with a dog, check out Dog Beach, just south of Estero Island on Lovers Key next to the state park where you can take your dog to the beach, let them run off leash and swim to their heart's content with other beach bum dogs.

Parasailing on Fort Myers Beach is an absolute blast! Paradise Parasail has an amazing staff that helps make the experience fun for the entire family. It is so neat to be able to see the whole island from 1200 feet in the air; plus all the marine life, including a family of dolphins! The shuttle boat is a life saver, because you don't have to walk out in the water past your ankles. You definitely want to make parasailing with Paradise Parasail a part of your next vacation.

The Refuge is just a short drive from Fort Myers Beach, on neighbouring Sanibel Island, and is well worth a visit. It's home to over 220 species of birds and is a great place to observe them in their natural habitat. It's also a wonderfully peaceful location for a walk.
Entrance costs $5 per car (less for a cycle or on foot). A well-maintained road runs the length of the Refuge and you can stop wherever you like. You can also park the car and walk along several trails. If you keep your eyes peeled you'll see lots of wonderful things. I visit at least once every time I'm in Florida and always see something different. I've even seen a couple of alligators.
I would recommend visiting either early morning or early evening, when the birds are more active. The Refuge is open every day except Friday, from 7:30am until sunset.

As much as I like boat rides, I expected the usual tourist trip with points of interest narrated by a bored tour guide who had done it all 1000 times before...
That was before we met Mark and Terresa on his fantastic boat ! Mark is the most enthusiasic and willing host, absolutly nothing was too much trouble, he wanted to know what we wanted out of the day what our preferences were and not only did he try but succeeded in giving us the best day we have ever had on the water.
Sitting up top, through our binoculars we would spot dolphins way off in the distance, Mark would open up the boat for a thrill ride to where they were swimming, turning up his "special " dolphin music as we went,, he has a way of inviting them to follow the boat and start dancing,spinning-jumping-turning all around the boat..
Mark supplied drinks and nibbles on board but having fun brings on an appetite for lunch ! No problem Mark had a few suggestions one which we followed and enjoyed some of the freshest food around not to mention the good company, the locals knew Mark and made us feel very much at home and adopted us as "locals" too.... My Birthday was complete.
Or so I thought, after lunch we explored the islands and beaches and some high speed runs towards Fort Meyers - oh yes did I mention dolphins ? :)
We cant wait to get back....

It only consists of several blocks, located near Times Square. But it is fine if you want to kill an hour or two and check out some funky beach stores and the whole ambviance of a beach town. Lots of surfer shops.

Riding a waverunner through the mangroves and back bay areas of Fort Myers Beach is an excellent way to explore the area and have the thrill of riding the waverunners. The trip lasts for an hour and a half to two hours and you have your own tour guide to lead you. Mid Island Water Sports has been in business for over 18 years and does freestyle waverunners rentals, guided dolphin tours, parasailing, sailboats and complete beach service with chairs and umbrellas. Visit their site or call for reservations and information!!

I had to share this ride with all of you. We didn't know what to do on vacation in Fort Myers Beach. We saw the red, white & blue cigarette style boat sitting in the water by the pier. We called their number and booked a ride. WOW!!!! What an amazing experience! My family still talks about it. We got up to 70mph, raced across Fort Myers Beach up to Sanibel, did high-speed 360 degree turns, jumped wakes and laughed the whole time. We even stopped to watch a pod of dolphins play! You guys have to try this. HAVE FUN because we'll be back for sure next year!

Just a short drive away are the islands of Sanibel and Captiva. They are both beautiful, with an almost 'tropical' atmosphere. There are wonderful beaches, elegant shops in delightful small complexes and great restaurants. There are also numerous gorgeous homes to admire.
You pass through Sanibel on your way to Captiva, which is the quieter of the two and a perfect place for an evening walk on a beautiful beach.
The islands recently suffered terrible hurricane damage which wiped out a lot of the greenery but they did a great job of cleaning things up and it's still a very beautiful place.
