Yes there is, my name is Greg Boland and I work with Jim at Suncoasteam Realty. In fact I am taking some of my customers out this afternoon to do just that.
As you start to look in our area you learn that there are many homes on canals, but to get to open water can sometimes take as long as two hours at no wake speed. We also have some areas that have locks and others with low fixed bridges, so depending on the kind of boating you want to do and the style of vessel you have will impact where you should look.
Charlotte Harbor is a great area to boat and we have many large boating events throughout the year, you just have to pick the areas to look in so you can enjoy quick access. If you have some homes that you have picked out to see we can give you a good idea of time to open water, but we can also get you out on the water so that you can see for yourself all that Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte has to offer.
I lived in New Hampshire for 50+ years and have spent some time in Boothbay Harbor, you owe it to yourself to check out this part of Southwest Florida you won't be disappointed.
