Paddle Board Tours Fort Myers Beach #FMBStrong 2023 Season
- Dog Beach at Lovers Key and New Pass: We will once again offer Mangrove paddle board tours in the Fort Myers Beach area on Lover’s Key on Dog Beach as soon as the Dog Beach officially re-opens in March! The gulf inlet at Dog Beach is the most beautiful place in our area to paddle with clear water and areas to paddle where powered boats cannot go! Starting March 16th we hope to have our 2023 paddle boarding tour schedule in our booking system where you can browse our tours individually to see photos and detailed descriptions.
- Bunche Beach: Paddle and Explore Tours at Bunche Beach when it officially re-opens later in March.
- Matanzas On The Bay: Not offered for 2023. Tours at the The Matanzas Inn where we also launched from and stored some equipment, will not start as they are rebuilding and closed for now like so many of the hotels. We will not be offering Bowditch Point Tip of the Island Tours for 2023. If you are a more experience Paddler we will be able to explore the Northern Tip of the Island by launching from Bunche Beach once it re-opens.
- Bowditch Point Beach Park (Northern Tip of Estero Island – FMB): Not offered for 2023. For the last 3 or 4 years this has been a favorite tour in the mornings before the boat traffics causes too many waves. Dog Beach has become more popular since we can paddle where there is no boat traffic! During the rebuild of FMB we will not be offering the Fun in the Sun Tip of the Island Paddle. Book Dog Beach instead; you will be happy that you did, more nature, more wildlife, less boats once we paddle back toward the Mangrove islands and the beautiful clear blue water and sand bars.
