Cape coral

4 of us (3 adults and an 8 year old) will be in the cape coral area in 4 weeks.  Any places you guys can recommend for snorkeling? We will have a rented boat but are limited on how far we can go.   None of us have a lot of experience. 
Thanks

    There's not much in the way of snorkeling here. There are some culvert in around 20ft but not much reef like you find on the east coast. Get a top spots map of the area it will point you in the right direction. Water clarity near the beaches can be hit or miss.

    Ok.  We will be spending a few days on the east cost of florida also.  I believe we are staying in loxahatchee. Any suggestions for there?

    On the east coast blue heron bridge is a good snorkeling spot. You swim from the shore and there is some artificial reef with plenty of fish to see in around 15’ of water. Phil foster park is where you park to go snorkeling.

    This most definitely, by far the best around.

    U gotta go dead high tide for best experience so that gives you about a 2 hour window. Current can strong other times. Visibility best high tide.

    Very good dive store Force E on the same road if u need any extras.

    They sunk about 20 artificial reef modules in 12' and they run in a line parallel to shore about 80 yards out. If u have kids bring something that floats so they can rest If neccessary.

    It's a real nice spot, allot people get part their certified there.

    PM me if you want more.
