Catamaran Dan Hobie Kayak Rentals & Catamaran Cruises


Catamaran "Cap'n" Dan welcomes you to Cape Coral/Fort Myers! We're here to serve you and ensure that you have an awesome time on the water.  Choose from our Hobie kayaks (paddle, pedal or decide) or a party or sunset cruise on the world-famous solar-powered catamaran "Shamrocket".


We offer the stable, ocean-going Hobie pedal kayaks (with Sidekick stabilizers) for by the hour, 4 hour, or full day rentals. With the Hobie kayak, you decide if you want to paddle, pedal and/or sail!  Something unique to the Hobie kayak is that you can set your rudder and then use the Mirage Drive pedals and/or sail to move you along the water at a speed that strikes your fancy.  Either way, both hands are free for photography, meditation, having a meal or beverage, or simply kicking back and relaxing. It's simply a safe and amazing time on the water! A perfect venue for a family outing.


If you prefer a more relaxed approach to your water experience, join Catamaran Dan on the catamaran "Shamrocket" for fun-filled sunset  or party "booze" cruise (approximately 1.5 hours prior to local sunset time) -  both of which will depart from Cape Coral at 5310 Cocoa Court, Cape Coral, FL. In  groups of no more than 6 individuals, you can stretch out while being no more than a foot or two above the water.  You'll want to have your camera ready as you pass over the seagrasses, fish, rays, turtles and an endless variety of birds that make the area their home.

The sunset party cruise starts approximately 1.5 hours prior to the scheduled sunset (local time).  This is a bring your own beverage cruise, but Catamaran Dan does provide ice and plastic cups for your use.  The sunsets from the water area are simply amazing and this cruise is a great way to end your day on the water.


Depending on availability and weather, Catamaran Dan will film segments of your on the water experience with "Duck", the amphibious drone. This is included in the cost of your rental. Your film segments will be either downloaded to your laptop, or saved to a DVD and mailed to you within a few days.
