Club to host Bowditch Point paddle

By Staff | Jul 24, 2019

The Ocean Tribe Paddling Club hosts excursions 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 July 30 from 3 to 5 p.m.

Paddlers will take part in an excursion at Bowditch Point Regional Park. Encompassing the entire tip of Estero Island, the quiet park offers the best of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. A bayside dock offers easy access to the calm waters of the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail. Don’t forget to bring binoculars as Bowditch Point is a designated Great Florida Birding Trail site.

Those interested in taking part can bring their own paddling craft or reserve one of the limited number of loaner vessels in advance. To reserve a vessel, email oceantribepaddlers@sanibelseaschool.org.

The first event is free, then it is requested that a club membership be purchased.

Meet at 2:45 p.m. at the Bowditch Point bayside dock kayak launch, at 50 Estero Blvd., Fort Myers Beach.

Any weather related updates or schedule changes will be posted on the Ocean Tribe Outfitters Facebook page at least one hour prior to the event.

Ocean Tribe Outfitters is a branch of Sanibel Sea School that helps the local paddling community better explore, enjoy, and understand the ocean. For more information, visit oceantribeoutfitters.org or follow on Facebook or Instagram.
