Great Calusa Blueway

The Great Calusa Blueway paddling trail meanders through the coastal waters and inland tributaries of Lee County, covering the Pine Island/Estero Bay area, Calooshatchee River and Sanibel/Captiva and outer islands. Easy-to-identify trail markers guide paddlers through shallow areas away from powerboat traffic. The trail is perfect for both beginners seeking short trips and avid, experienced back-country paddlers. Anglers, bird watchers, day-trippers, families, adventure enthusiasts and geocachers also enjoy the blueway.
