Ocean Tribe Paddlers to explore Sanibel canals

By Staff | Mar 28, 2019

Ocean Tribe Paddlers, with the Sanibel Sea School, organizes a meet-up each month for paddling enthusiasts to enjoy a group paddle, share tips and ideas, and meet new friends to paddle with.

The next one will be held on April 4 from 9:30 to 11 a.m.

Participating paddlers will explore the residential canals of Sanibel. It is an excellent opportunity to explore an area of the island that is home to a surprisingly diverse array of flora and fauna.

Canal paddles often provide a chance to observe manatees, dolphins, birds and fish – and some residents’ yards are full of interesting native plants. Paddlers can also expect to meander through a few short spans of shady mangrove habitat.

Those interested in taking part can bring their own paddling craft or borrow one from Ocean Tribe Paddlers. To reserve a loaner, email oceantribepaddlers@sanibelseaschool.org in advance.

Meet at the Sanibel Boat Ramp, at 888 Sextant Drive, Sanibel.

Be sure to visit the Ocean Tribe Paddlers Facebook page for any weather-related updates; schedule changes will be posted at least one hour prior to the event.
