Water, Water, Every Where – Boating in Naples, Florida

Canal Homes Naples, FL

Water, water, every where…….for those of you who know the story of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner know that he ended up guiding his disenchanted crew to Antarctica. Hardly “Paradise”! We can do better than a poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge with all due respect. We can offer sensational boating in tropical waters and help you navigate to single family homes with your boat in the backyard. Waterfront property has always been and will always be limited and commands a premium around the globe so, your investment is protected.

Click on the links below to see the photos and details for boating opportunities in Naples:

The neighborhood of Connors at Vanderbilt Beach offers both quick access to the Gulf of Mexico through Wiggins Pass (one bridge with about 20 feet of clearance) as well as endless back bay boating all of the way up to Matanzas Pass at Fort Myers Beach. There are about 500 canal homes with three streets having the unique characteristic of being on a canal and a short stroll across the street to the beach.
