Cape Coral Saltwater/Gulf Access and Freshwater Canals
The waterfront canal system through Cape Coral is rather complicated!
Cape Coral includes both saltwater/gulfaccess and freshwater canals. Saltwater canals refers to those with Gulf access, Freshwater canals do not! The freshwater canal system makes up for this with a large network of lakes and basins for freshwater fishing. Cape Coral includes sailboat access canals, direct access canals, and partially restricted access canals. Direct access means that there are no locks or lifts interrupting the waterway. It's no surprise that the Gulf Access Homes are the most sought after and typically the most expensive . Less expensive are restricted/partially restricted access and freshwater canals.
