Club to host full moon paddle

By Staff | Sep 4, 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 Sept. 14 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

It will be a full moon paddle through the mangrove canals around Bowman’s Beach. Enjoy sunset views over the Gulf of Mexico while paddling along winding canals filled with jumping mullet, wading birds and manatees. Once the sun has retired for the day, participants can turn their attention to the moon as it illuminates their way home.

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 6:45 p.m. at the Bowman’s Beach kayak launch.

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.
