Some of my favorite places are Turner River in the Everglades, Peace river up in Port Charotte, Hellpeckney Bay at Ft Myers Beach, I have favorites all over Florida but those are a couple of the nearby places

You can rent kayaks at Lover's Key- it's a beautiful place, with lots of wildlife. You can go in the bay or the channels between the bay and the gulf. I've seen dolphins, manatees, and lots of fish and birds while kayaking there.

A couple more recommendations ... Rookery Bay Reserve (off Marco), Johnson Bay to Keewaydin Beach (off Marco at Isles of Capri) but you have to dodge speed boats across the waterways and Everglades City.

This time of the year is bad for mosquito's.

Are you interested in

Bay or Gulf or River?

this time of year is very hot on open water. a shaded river is nice.

Are you renting a car that you can put it on the roof?

The Estero bay has a whole trail You can go to Estero River outfitters to rent a kayak they will also tell you where to paddle. and set you up
