Kayaking was fun

Sent a few pleasant hours kayaking the mangroves. Saw some jumping mackerel, and enjoyed the paddle through the mangroves. They have other boats for rent too. Very friendly staff.

We were totally misled about the cancellation policy if the weather was bad. We then encountered an extremely rude and unco-operative General Manager when we attempted to gain a refund based on what I had been told by the booking girl on the phone. Be aware when you are asked for a $50 deposit, ask for exact detail on cancellation... More

This marina has got it together. They were very accommodating and very thorough. We rented a boat for 4 hours to head to Cayo Costa and they answered all of the "what ifs" regarding overages with time, costs and left no surprises. The boat was nice, while showed wear and tear, but all in all for a rental...it was great!... More

My favorite place to take visitors kayaking. The staff are most helpful and rental equipment is in great shape. The tours and boat docking facilities are unique. I live near and there are many choices but Port Sanibel Marina is superb.

I can't fault the staff or location. But the boat engines were poor. First boat was a Grady White bowrider [Freedom 205?] with a 150hp Yamaha outboard. It didn't matter what I did with the trim I couldn't get it over 15mph and engine was running poorly. Engine died on me at one point. They were good enough to swap... More

Really helpful staff. Great boat for us - lots of room and really comfortable. Powerful enough to explore whole area whilst not too expensive. Great value.

Highly recommended. You can board different cruises from this marina in Sanibel. It is a beautiful marina from this you can pass through a small island where luxurious homes by the water can be seen before heading out to sightseeing adventures around Sanibel, Captiva islands and Fort Myers. A must to do if you have time.

We rented a Grady White boat for a half day. Spent several hours fishing and caught many catfish. Saw several dolphins. Staff was very friendly and prices very reasonable. Would go back to rent from them again. We rented in the morning and got back right before the afternoon storm, so best to go out in the morning.

Very inexpensive 2 hour kayak trip at sanibel marina. If you are looking for a lot of shade this is not the tour for you. It is very open water and sunny. One short section was covered with mangroves and shaded so nice. Didn't see much wildlife except for a single manatee. Overall a good trip and for the $25... More
