Sanibel Sea School’s new Ocean Tribe Paddling Club organizes a meet-up each month for paddling enthusiasts to enjoy a relaxed paddle, share tips and ideas, and meet new friends to paddle with.
The July meet-up will be held on Tuesday, July 11th at 5:30 PM, and participants will paddle the Sanibel canals. “The canals are almost always calm, and we will probably spot some wildlife like manatees, dolphins, and birds along the way,” said marine educator and ACA-certified paddling instructor Spencer Richardson, who plans and leads the monthly events.
Those interested in joining the paddle should bring their own paddling equipment (kayaks, canoes, stand up paddleboards and other paddle-powered vessels are all welcome). The group will leave from the Sanibel Boat Ramp, where parking is available for $4/ hour.
Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time. The organization also offers weekly guided paddling excursions for families and groups. To learn more, visitsanibelseaschool.org or call (239) 472-8585.
