What Kind of Boats?
You’ll see just about every kind of boat imaginable in along the Gulf of Mexico. From luxury yachts to small skiffs. That’s what is so alluring about the boating in SouthWest Florida—there is something for everyone.
Just looking down our canal in Cape Coral, here is sampling of the variety: 18′ deck boat, 21′ bay boat, a 45′ single hull sailboat, 17′ bowrider, 40′ cabin cruiser, 36′ open sportfish, and 2 jet skis.
We love our 31′ Tiara Express Cruiser, pictured here. It has just the right combination of creature comforts, power, and durability. If there’s a chop on the Gulf of Mexico and high rollers, we call that fun and don’t worry a bit about the boat’s stability. And it accomodates a group of 10 people comfortably. While day trips to Sanibel and Fort Myers are routine for us, we also take frequent overnight cruises south to Naples (Crayton Cove) and north to Venice (Crow’s Nest).
