Paddling Tip of the Week
Boat traffic increases this time of year with the influx of visitors, putting more inexperienced boaters on the water. While paddling, it is always recommended to steer clear of main channels, but watch out for smaller power boats that can travel through shallow water, they are less predictable and tend to present the most notable threat to paddlers. Stay close to shore and cross channels as quickly as possible. The weekly paddling tip is provided by the Ocean Tribe Paddling Club, which is affiliated with the Sanibel Sea School.
