Club to host paddle to Picnic Island

By Staff | Oct 16, 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 Oct. 26 from 9 to 11 a.m.

It will be a morning paddling excursion to Picnic Island in the San Carlos Bay. The waters around the island are home to many critters, such as bonnethead sharks, southern stingrays and manatees.

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 8:45 a.m. on the north side of Causeway Island A, the one closest to the toll booth.

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.
