 The Canal System and Bridge Heights in Cape Coral

On the following maps you can see the complete system of freshwater and gulf access canals in Cape Coral and their approximate exit times into the open water. Blue areas are freshwater canals and have no access to open water, but may consist of miles of interconnected waterways. Areas marked in different colors are channels with access to the Gulf of Mexico. The lower maps show all bridges and their heights in all canal systems. Properties located in the South of Cape Coral and west of Chiquita Blvd must also pass through the Cape Harbor boat lock. If you would like to download the complete map with bridge heights as a pdf, please click on one of the two lower maps. (Please understand that this is a large file and will take a little time to download and display.)
