Paddling Tip of the Week
Check out the smartphone app, Polaris GPS, the GPS app is free for Android devices. Polaris GPS can be a useful tool for planning and tracking your route. Because the app uses the GPS signal on your phone, you can use many of the features offline but it also allows you to download detailed maps and plans to your phone before you launch. If you are going paddling in open waters, Polaris GPS can also give you access to marine charts to let you view water depths. The weekly paddling tip is provided by the Ocean Tribe Paddling Club, which is affiliated with the Sanibel Sea School. For more information, visit oceantribepaddlers.org.
