Boating & Watersports
Charlotte Harbor, Florida's second-largest open-water estuary, is a dream for boaters, paddlers, and cruisers. Filled with peaceful coves and bays, the harbor provides endless opportunities to tackle a tarpon, captain a kayak, pilot a paddleboard, or skipper a sailboat.
This tranquil coastal community boasts more than 830 miles of shoreline and includes river passages, mangrove-edged aquatic preserves, and sandy beaches. Paddlers revel in the hundreds of miles of Blueway Trails that start with the Peace and Myakka rivers and extend out to the Gulf of Mexico.
Below you will find an assortment of businesses that can get you out on the water.
