Travel Destination: Fort Meyers, Florida

Fort Meyers has long been a prime tourist destination in Florida and the commercial center for Lee County with a population of around 83,000. It was founded post Civil War, and named after Colonel Abraham Meyers. It has a rich history of being a farming and fishing hub but has changed dramatically over time.

Today many of the original buildings have been replaced with masonry and brick buildings, and subdivisions and neighborhoods have popped up around the surrounding downtown area. Fort Meyers is located on the southwest side of the Florida peninsula and is home to many historical destinations, sport fishing, scuba diving, and many other ocean adventures.

Scuba Diving

The scuba diving in Fort Meyers is one of the best-kept secrets in the area with over 20 different artificial reef sites and numerous diving outfits that attracts tourists from all over the world. These artificial reefs are bountiful with different sea life from diverse species of algae, massive schools of baitfish, groupers, southern stingrays, and the occasional whale shark and manta ray sightings. 

In addition to the artificial reefs, the coast of Fort Meyers also offers natural reefs, drop-offs, sinkholes, and historic wreck sites that are suitable for all skill levels because of its different depths and visibility. With a very temperate climate diving is possible year-round with average temperatures ranging from 77-87 degrees. Below are some of the most popular dive sites.

Bayronto Wreck site

 This is one of the most popular wreck sites in the area that is located 30 miles all the coast. The Bayronto was a British freighter during World War I, and she was shot down by a German U-Boat in 1918. It is a 400-foot wreck that lies broken in two different sections. The marine life is bountiful, and there are many compartments and areas to explore.

ARC Reef

 Located around 15 miles offshore, the ARC Reef offers something for all skill levels. At a maximum depth of 60 feet and 14 different sites, you’re bound to see different marine species from goliath groupers and sharks to turtles and the occasional lobster.

Diving Outfits

Deans Dive Center

Located in Fort Meyers, Dean’s Dive Shop has been one of the most prolific diving outfits in the area since 1993. Whether you’re an experienced diver or just a beginner, Dean’s Dive Shop has everything you need. They offer different levels of PADI Scuba diving training classes and provide their customers with any dive gear, spearfishing equipment, and much more.

H2o Offshore Adventures

 H2O Offshore Adventures is home to not only offshore diving, but sport fishing, spearfishing, and sightseeing boat rides. They carry all U.S. Coast Guard equipment, and the captain is an NAUI certified scuba diving instructor. With many different options of closer, shallow dive sites to more advanced areas like the USCGC Mohawk Veterans Memorial Reef, you’re bound to find something for the whole family.
