More than four million people visited the Fort Myers, Florida area in 2016 and a majority of them were there for the beaches.

Being in Fort Myers is a great opportunity to take advantage of beautiful weather and head down to the water. In addition to beach activities and sunbathing, there are a number of ways to have fun by being on the water.

From kayaking to parasailing, you shouldn’t pass up a chance to participate in some Fort Myers water sports during your stay. There are activities perfect for everyone from the solo traveler to family vacationers, all at varying levels of adventure and thrill.

If you’re planning a Fort Myers vacation–or looking for an excuse to–read on. Below, we’re providing you with all the information you need on the best water sports to enjoy while you’re there.

1. Kayaking

Of all the different Fort Myers water sports to enjoy, kayaking is one of the most popular and it’s not hard to understand why.

With kayaking, you get to customize a lot of elements of your experience. If you want to go at a more relaxed pace that allows you to pay close attention to your surroundings, that’s an option. If you want a more rigorous experience that allows you to combine sight-seeing with a great workout, you can do that too.

You can also partner up with a friend or family member in the same kayak, which adds a social element to the experience. Kayaks are easily available to rent, so you can head out on the water whenever you want.

2. Parasailing

Parasailing is an unforgettable experience because being up in the air is unlike anything else. Parasailing also affords you a view of the water you wouldn’t be able to get otherwise. If the water is clear, there’s no telling what you could see.

In order to parasail during your stay in Fort Myers you will need a guide to take you out, so be sure to book your excursion in advance.

3. Jet Ski

Have you ever seen a jet ski chase in a movie and thought, “That looks like fun?” Fort Myers is a perfect place to live out your cinematic dreams.

Riding a jet ski really can be as exciting and adventurous as it seems, but you can be in complete control of your speed the whole time. If you’re interested in a more leisurely pace, that’s a possibility too.

Whether it’s a solo ride or you’re going with the whole family, jet ski rentals are an experience you’ll never forget.

4. Dolphin Tours

It may not be what you think of when you think of traditional water sports, but a dolphin tour is a great activity for the entire family to enjoy.

From your boat, you can get an up close and personal experience with some of the most majestic creatures in the water. A good sighting can take your breath away, so be sure to bring your camera so you can relive the moment long after you’re back on land.
