Yachts For Sale In Fort Myers

Located on the southwest coast of Florida, just north of Naples, in the section of coastline known as the Lee Islands Coast, is Fort Myers and Cape Coral, along with Sanibel and Captiva Islands (barrier islands). Both Fort Myers and Cape Coral are on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River, a major Florida waterway that is part of the Okeechobee Waterway that crosses the Florida peninsula from Gulf of Mexico/Fort Myers in the west to the Atlantic Ocean/Stuart in the east, through Lake Okeechobee. There are 5 locks involved in the crossing, 3 are on the west side of Lake “O.” It is a more protected route for vessels cruising the Great Loop or just crossing to either coast, shaving about 165 NM from cruising outside and around the tip of Florida.

The Okeechobee Waterway is maintained by the US Army Corp of Engineers (USACE), who built the canals and locks for navigation across state. The Caloosahatchee River is the third leg of the Great Calusa Blueway of scenic waterways in the area, great for kayak and canoe excursions. The 67-mile river was used as a water highway by the Calusa Indians, from whom it was named, and early settlers in the area. Today the river’s wide end where it flows out into bays and the Gulf of Mexico is busy with industry, shipping and boating in stark contrast to its peaceful backwaters where it drains the northern Everglades.
As with the Naples area, wealthy businessmen and celebrities took a shine to Fort Myers for its natural beauty and abundant waterways, along with infrastructure development in the late 1800’s and turn of the century. Inventors Thomas Edison and Henry Ford purchased land in 1916 and built estates in what is now downtown Fort Myers. Edison planted the stately Royal Palms that line scenic McGregor Blvd leading to the city’s most upscale riverfront neighborhoods. The Edison and Ford estates are now museums that have become Fort Myers most visited attraction.
