    Looking to borrow a kayak for my daughter who will be coming over from the west coast

    July 29, 2014

    • Rodger L.

      Debra, I have my second kayak and accessories if you'd like. You could pick it up this evening.

      Thank you roger. Sorry I didn't see your reply till too late . For some reason my meetup things I discovered are going to my SPAM . C u there

    Just a couple of things.... For those of you who will be renting, I would suggest you call the fish house to check on reserving a kayak [masked]). For those who are bringing there own, you will see a large parking lot on your right as you drive in. Please park there after un-loading your gear. Bring lots of water and don't forget a lunch or snack. I believe there is a food and beverage floating barge that comes out there.... But they are pricey. Looking forward to some summer fun!

      I tried calling this number but it seems to be disconnected. I have to rent a kayak, so any idea how often they run out of kayaks to rent? ;-)

      August 1, 2014

    • Diane

      Terry.....try calling[masked]-5555. Sorry about the number. I just called and they did answer. they do have lots of kayaks, so doubt they will run out, but you never no. hope to see you in the morning!

      August 1, 2014

  • Diane

    ok...just a reminder...we plan to leave the shore line at 10AM. I no the forecast says 60% chance of rain....but there was a 60% chance of rain today in Fort Myers, and we got late afternoon sprinkles. So unless is it threatening in the AM, will still plan on going. With 30 kayaks, we may need to leave in shifts. If you do not know the way, please tell us so we pair you up with those who do. If you decide not to come, please "un-invite" yourself so we do not wait for you. If you are coming and running behind, please call me at[masked] so we can wait for you. Looking forward to seeing you all there!!!!

    I am very new to this area -- what is the paddling distance and about what time will we be back? I didn't see this information -- maybe I missed it! Thanks so much.

    Is there a place to rent a kayak near by? I am coming from Ft. Myers and I don't want to rent one up here to tow it to Naples. Also, is this a good trip for new kayakers?

    • Diane

      Oops... Dang spell check.,,boat traffic on weekends could be busy.

    Cant wait. I have been wanting to check out keewydin. Is it really clear enough to snorkel?

    July 26, 2014

    • Diane

      Carla... Depending on the weather, the water there can be very clear or murky. I plan on bringing my snorkel gear and hope for the best!

      July 29, 2014

  • Deen M

    Is there enough room to park my car/kayak trailer at the Capri Fish House ?

    July 28, 2014

    • Peggy

      Deen, parking is across the street and I am pretty sure the spaces will not hold both car and trailer but there is a parking lot very close by that would handle both. The best is to unload at the Capri fish house and then take your car and trailer to the parking lot.

    Kid appropriate? Girls, ages 7 and 9.

    July 27, 2014

    • Richard

      Kids are fine. There will be some current from the tides and boat traffic on the route.

    July 21, 2014

  • Debbie H.
