The Chiquita Boat Lock is located at 5808 Cape Coral Drive in Cape Coral, Florida. It provides access from the Camelot Canal and the Southwest Spreader into the Caloosahatchee River. It is operated by the Marine Services Division of Cape Coral Parks and Recreation.
There is currently a controversy occurring between the City of Cape Coral and the Department of Environmental Protection ( seeking to remove the lock) and Environmentalists (seeking to have the lock maintained). A decision on this project is planned to occur before the end of 2018.
