Paddling Tip of the Week
Avoid paddling in main channels if at all possible, especially in San Carlos Bay. Although you can expect most boat traffic to flow through the channels, smaller power boats can travel through shallow water and are a lot less predictable, so they tend to present the most notable threat to paddlers. Stay close to shore and cross channels as quickly as possible to be safe. The weekly paddling tip is provided by the Ocean Tribe Paddling Club, which is affiliated with the Sanibel Sea School.
