Aqualane Shores is a boaters paradise, built on a series of canals that feed into Naples Bay with direct no-bridge access to the Gulf of Mexico. Almost every home here is on the water and has a dock. Homes at the end of the streets have sweeping views of Naples Bay and Royal Harbor across the Bay. Aqualane Shores is steps to Olde Naples' famous Third Street South shopping and dining district, and directly across Gordon Drive from the white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.
Before 1950 the land that is now Aqualane Shores was a mangrove swamp. In the 1950s the canals were drudged and a small sales office was placed at the corner of Third Street South and 15th Avenue South. The price of pre-development price of the lots was $2,500. Eventually canal lots sold for $4,000 and bay view lots sold for $7,000.
