Paddling Tip of the Week
One of the best ways to explore Lee County is by water. The 190-mile Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail was developed by Lee County Parks & Recreation for this purpose. The trail is easily accessible with numerous launching points, is clearly defined by markers, and has a dedicated app that can help you stay on track. The trail starts in Estero Bay, continues along Pine Island and Matlacha, and finishes inland to the Caloosahatchee River. 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.
