TBE offers cruises, more through the holidays
Tarpon Bay Explorers offers various ways to explore the bay that are great for all ages.
It offers guided Nature Cruises throughout the day, led by a knowledgeable naturalist who can teach participants about local wildlife and the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel.
Its private fishing charters allow anglers — experience not required — to fish with guides who know the bay like the back of their hand. For a private boating experience, pontoon rentals are available.
TBE is ensuring the safety of visitors by incorporating COVID protocols to its operations. Tours are operating at half capacity to assist with social distancing. Surfaces of all rental and tour equipment are sanitized before and after every use. Charter captains wear masks throughout the trip and anglers are temperature checked beforehand.
Reservations are recommended to guarantee a spot.
Tarpon Bay Explorers is the only concession to the Sanibel refuge, providing educational and recreational opportunities. Twelve percent of any tour, rental or merchandise purchased goes to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the care and protection of National Wildlife Refuges nationwide.
