2017 Live Auction Items

By Land or By Sea Team Scavenger Hunt
Back by popular demand, Sanibel Sea School will design and help your party execute the best bonding event ever. We will plan an island wide, full-day scavenger hunt replete with goofy photo ops and embarrassing moments, all the while challenging your group's social and critical thinking skills. By car or by boat, it’s up to you – you might just have to talk your way into a hotel room, borrow a fireman’s hat, or get an autograph from an island celebrity. Whether this is for a corporate retreat, or just about the best family gathering ever, you will be amazed at the fun to be had in the challenges ahead! This event can be arranged for up to 15 participants, and we request that you provide at least 60 days advance notice when scheduling the best day on the island.

Drink and Dine
A Sanibel Style Group Pub Crawl. Our custom open-air tiki trailer is sure to put you in the island spirit. With festive décor, comfy bench seating for 12, and Doc Bruce as your guide, our tiki tacky trolley is the portable place to see and be seen on Sanibel! We will stop at Matzaluna and Traders, where bartenders will serve up hors d’oeuvres and libations, and we’ll end the night with a celebratory dinner for 10 at the brand new Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille. Would anyone like a side of Yucatan Shrimp with that rum?!

Out of This World Planet Gazing and Al Fresco Dinner Party
Gather your friends for a dinner party like none other. You will be stargazing in a location of your choice – we think a beach or golf course would be swell. What you’ll see will depend on which night you choose, but not to worry, astronomer extraordinaire Robert Hunt will help you pick a good one to peer through his ultra powerful telescope. You’ll most certainly be treated to amazing views of Jupiter and Saturn, and perhaps the moon, galaxies, and gas clouds galore. Have you ever seen a solar flare? We have, and it’s incredible! We’ll bring the dinner and drinks for what is sure to be an otherworldly event for up to 10 guests.

A Stand Up Adventure for 6 With a Stand Up Guy
Doc Bruce loves stand up paddling – you can find him gliding along the local waters atop his sleek board almost any day of the year. “Stand up paddling is my favorite way to explore the ocean,” he says, “It gives you a far line of sight and an incredible view of what’s in the water below you.” Join him for a day-long exploration, which includes a picnic meal and loaner paddle boarding gear for six people. For you, this package also includes the gift of this 2017 BOTE Rackham Board. Known as The Waterman’s Board, the Rackham features a stable platform that's easy to paddle. It's well designed for fishing, beautifully decorated with exotic wood inlay, and comes with a carbon fiber BOTE paddle. See you on the water!
