The water on Marco Island (and the Gulf in general) is very calm most days. The waves are much smaller than in the Atlantic. It will be perfect for your kids and swimming!

We were there 2 weeks ago with my kids ages 2, 6, & 8 and the water was perfect for them. It was nice to not have worry as much like I do here on the Atlantic!

I would just like to suggest bringing water shoes (there are a lot of shells along the shoreline). Some people don't like stepping on them (some can be sharp).

Have fun :)

In the summer months the water off the beach is like glass on most days.
