The Pelican Landing Community Association has purchased Coconut Point Marina from WCI Communities for $700,000.

The 22 boat slip marina is located at the end of Coconut Point Road on Estero Bay. Pelican Landing had used the marina to shuttle residents to the community’s 34 acre beach park on Big Hickory Island.  By purchasing the marina, Pelican Landing residents can be assured of uninterrupted beach park shuttle service.

Pelican Landing plans to lease the boat slips and continue operating a sunfish sailboat rental business. The 1.5 acre marina, most of which is a conservation area, includes a a parking lot, but the facility does not offer fuel.

 

The Hyatt Regency at Coconut Point also runs its own boat shuttle from Coconut Point Marina to Big Hickory Island. The boats leave every 30 minutes. Pelican Landing offers a $10 sunset cruise to its residents.
