Paddling Club to host film screening

By Staff | Mar 4, 2020

The Ocean Tribe Paddling Club will host a screening of the documentary “The Passage” on March 12 at 5 p.m. at the Sanibel Sea School, at 455 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

The event will include a social hour with drinks, snacks and the screening.

The film is about: “In 1974, my 20-year-old parents and uncle Andy built their own canoes, launched them into the Pacific, and became some of the first people in modern history to canoe from Washington to Alaska up the Inside Passage. My brother and I grew up paddling those wooden canoes in the Virginia rivers and the 1974 adventure became legend in our family – shaping who we’ve become, how we view our parents, and how our parents view themselves. In the summer of 2017, we renovated those canoes and with our aging parents completed their 1974 journey. The Passage is a story about growing up, growing old, and the wild places that define us.”

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

Ocean Tribe Outfitters is a club organized by the 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.
