Club to host afternoon paddling excursion

By Staff | Jan 29, 2020

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 Feb. 6 from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

It will be an afternoon paddling and birding excursion at Bunche Beach Preserve, which covers over 700 acres and faces southwest toward Sanibel and the Gulf of Mexico. Home to mangroves, beaches and plenty of birds, it is part of the Great Calusa Blueway and the Great Florida Birding Trail.

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 the kayak launch in the Bunche Beach parking lot at 12:45 p.m.

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. The inclement weather location will be Bowman’s Beach.

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.
