Terrific coverage of the canals of the city of Cape Coral. The south side covers the Caloosahatchee River from Shell Point north to the new Midpoint Bridge and all canals and lakes north to Veterans Parkway. The reverse side covers all canals north from Veterans Parkway to Kismet Parkway noted with their names. Each canal is defined with a color scheme to indicate a) Sailboat Canals (not bridged), b) Powerboat Canals (bridged), and c) Fresh Water Canals (not linked navigationally to salt water). In addition all bridge heights are shown establishing clearance requirements.
Major roads and city facilities such as locks, lifts, and weirs, as well as parks, schools, and hospitals are shown. Boat ramps are located in both fresh and salt water areas and there is a location and phone number for each marina within the area of coverage. The river and Matlacha Pass areas are described with a simplified system of describing markers which makes the chart very easy to use. Information from NOAA chart 11427, Lee County GIS, private sources and field work.
