Water sports such a fishing, boating, sailing and kayaking are big outdoor activities in Naples. Fishing is great in the backwaters and out in the Gulf of Mexico. 10,000 Island Nation Park can be easily reached by routes through connecting backwaters.

There are plenty of fishing guide in the area, several working out of the City Dock. Group charter fishing boats go out of Tin City on the Naples Bay every day. The Naples Pier has a regular group of fisherman.

The Naples Bay, and other bays within Naples provide many residents with gulf access out their back doors. There are marinas for boaters that do not have gulf access and several boat clubs, where members have choices in what type of boat they would like to take out.
