Is it safe to swim in Cape Coral canals?
Herein, are there alligators in Cape Coral canals?
Cape Coral has its fair share of alligators, and for the most part, they live their own quiet lives in the numerous canals in the City. But as with other wildlife, as the population grows, so do the problems with alligators. Make no mind, ALLIGATORS ARE DANGEROUS!
Furthermore, are there sharks in Cape Coral canals? Florida Fish and Wildlife biologists say Cape Coral canals have low salinity creating a favorable environment for bull sharks to give birth. They are among the three types of species of sharks known to bite humans.
Beside above, are canals safe to swim in?
Canals can be very dangerous, so please follow these canal safety tips to avoid drowning or injury: Don't swim in canals — ever! Canal sides are extremely slick, making it difficult to get out. Swimming, canoeing, kayaking, water skiing and tubing are not allowed on the canals.
How deep are the canals in Cape Coral?
The City of Cape Coral does a good job of dredging canals to maintain depths of 6.5' to 7' in center but canals are variable. All saltwater canals lead to the Gulf, but getting to the river is key. Some locations are 45-60 minutes cruise time (no wake).
