Boating is a popular way to explore Southwest Florida at your own pace and enjoy nearly unlimited freedom. However, a little planning is necessary before you can head for idyllic islands and other destinations near Cape Coral. If you want to know how long it takes to get to your destination and which route to take, this tool from our cooperation partner is your perfect choice.
Calculate how long it will take you by boat from your vacation home to the desired destination
Just follow these 3 simple steps:
- Enter your starting point, e.g. the address of your vacation home in Cape Coral.
Requirement is that your vacation home is located on a property with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico.
- Select a destination for your boat trip from the drop-down menu on the right.
For example, you can display the fastest route to the Gulf of Mexico via Cape Coral’s channels.
For this you choose Little Shell Island as destination. Vacationers in the northwest of Cape Coral choose the Matlacha Pass Bridge (Pine Island Road) instead for the fastest route to the Gulf of Mexico.
- Click on “Show” to see the length of the route in miles, as well as the estimated travel time.
Most salt water canals are designated “No Wake zones”. Therefore, the tool accounts for a boat speed of 5 mph.
Please note that these calculations from iboatmap.com at this moment are only a rough estimate to help you get an idea of the length and duration of your trip. If you want to rent a boat, we always recommend to take one with a built-in GPS navigation system. This way you can calculate the route even more accurately.
