Caloosahatchee Up river
new to the forums
I've been wanting to make a trip up the river towards Okeechobee but have never found the time to.
Anyone know of where I can find a guide as far as speeds, depths, whats along the way, etc. Or has someone made the trip before?
I live in Cape Coral, so getting past Ft. Myers downtown is the problem with the recently added speed limits...No fun cruising at 15-25 on the skis...

I'm wanting to do the same trip. I've been up the river to downtown FM. Not too bad. 25 mph limit but most boaters are at 30-35. You can gas up in DT FM then it's about 60 miles before the next gas stop, just before Okeechobee. I'll be down in Ft Myers this coming week (May 13-1. I plan on riding almost everyday. Send me a PM or post here if you want to ride together. I'm just accross the river from the Cape Coral Yacht Club.

I will ride Thursday - Sunday. One day I plan on heading up to North Captivia via the ICW. Maybe stop at Cabbage Key, Barnical Phils, Mucky Duck for a bite to eat and a beer.
Another day probably head down to Lovers Key. Gotta stop at Flippers for a rum drink and probably hit the Fish House for some shrimp.
I was thinking about riding up the river another day. A guy at the gas station in Downtown FM told me it would be about 60 miles past the lock before the next gas station (not sure of that)
My wife might go with me some days while other days I will be solo.
Anyone is welcome to join me/us on any of our rides. Just post here or send a PM. Here is a pic of the ski I will be on.
