By Boat – Okeechobee Waterway
The Okeechobee Waterway is a man-made waterway stretching across Florida from Fort Myers on the west coast to Stuart on the east coast of Florida. The waterway runs through Lake Okeechobee and consists of the Caloosahatchee River to the west of the lake and the St. Lucie Canal east of the lake.
There are two (2) routes typically used on the waterway: Route #1, often referred to as the “Open Lake or Cross Lake” route and Route #2, commonly called the “Rim Route.” Route #1 offers quicker crossings and the ability to carry more draft, while Route #2 allows a more relaxed pace.
Along the way enjoy docking up to three nights free at the Labelle City Wharf, walking distance to downtown LaBelle District, and in Clewiston enjoy the nightlife on the water at Roland & Mary Ann Martins Marina or Jolly Roger Marina.
