Plan your Boat Trip with this Boat Navigation Tool

Boating is a popular way to explore Southwest Florida at your own pace and enjoy nearly unlimited freedom. However, a little planning is necessary before you can head for idyllic islands and other destinations near Cape Coral. If you want to know how long it takes to get to your destination and which route to take, this tool from our cooperation partner is your perfect choice.


Just follow these 3 simple steps:

  1. Type in your starting point, e.g. our boat dock (3637 Del Prado Blvd S, Cape Coral, FL 33904) in close proximity to open waters. Of course, we will also deliver the rental boat to your house if you want to start from there. In this case, just type in your address. Auto-correction will do the rest. Notice that the tool only works if your house is situated at the saltwater canal with access to the Gulf of Mexico.
  2.  In the dropdown menu on the right, choose a destination for your boat trip. For example, you can display the fastest route to the Gulf of Mexico via Cape Coral´s canals by selecting Little Shell Island. Vacationers based in the Northwest of the city choose Matlacha Pass Bridge (Pine Island Road) instead. This option will show you the quickest way to the Gulf of Mexico.
  3. Click on “Show” to see the length of the route in miles, as well as the estimated travel time. Most salt water canals are designated “No Wake zones”. Therefore, the tool accounts for a boat speed of 5 mph.

Please note that these calculations from at this moment are only a rough estimate to help you get an idea of the length and duration of your trip. Of course, we will provide you with a GPS navigation system. This way you can plan your route in more detail after you have rented your boat.
