On the islands there are miles of bike paths and at our complex and you can rent bikes for the week. You see a variety of kinds of bicycles from the bicycle built for two to the surrey with the fringe on top. People are going daily to look at the spots of the Island as the Light House, the east end with their little shops, the Beautiful Ding Darling preserve and also the lovely homes that dot the island. Right here at Ocean's Reach you can play tennis, swim, walk on the beach, go shelling, search for treasure, kayak, fish. We were watching the fisherman bring their bait by kayak and fish from shore. The high point of every day is sunset here as people gather to talk with new friends and toast the evening sun. When you wake up at 7:00 sit on your lanai and watch the sunrise. In this unit you can see this from your bed.
Boating: There are wonderful boat rides with Captiva Cruises. The one to Useppa leaves from Jensens Marina on Captiva for the day. You have lunch at Useppa Island at the Old Collier Inn. This Island is kept like 'Old Florida with the white homes and lattice work porches. They are on a pink path leading up to the Collier Inn. It was completely refurbished after Hurricane Charley. This Island was home to the movie stars in the 20s. It is landscaped so beautifully.
The boat ride is also great as they give you an idea of the history of the Islands and the dolphins follow the boat while jumping. It is very exciting to see a whole group of people clapping to get the dolphins to jump. There are other fishing trips from Grandma Dots or the Sanibel Marina with plenty of fish to be caught. There is also a morning cruise for Breakfast that is really charming. You really can find plenty to do. Ft. Myers has the Barbara Mann Theatre that offers current plays and musicals.
