Default Seeking Pine Island (FL) local info

Hi Roger,

Although I'm a west coast sailor, I'll be in the Sanibel area next week and would like to visit the local launch sites. Since you sail Pine Island Sound, I'm hoping you can recommend a launch site on Pine Island itself?

The KOA in St. James City says there are no public beaches on P.I., but that there is a small kayak launch area near them. Is this the place?

The map suggests that driving from P.I. to the Sanibel Causeway via Cape Coral and Ft. Myers could be a pain. At $50/night the P.I. KOA is probably as cheap as RV camping gets in Ft. Myers, but I wonder if there are any better local camping options?

Also, can a 70 cm FW fin be used here, and is there any local sail repair service available?

Thanks so much for your advice,
George
