Bowman’s Beach Mangrove Exploration

  • Bowman's Beach Kayak/Canoe Launch Bowmans Beach Road Sanibel, FL, 33957 United States (map)

Sanibel Sea School's Ocean Tribe Paddling Club organizes a meet-up each month for paddling enthusiasts to enjoy a group paddle, share tips and ideas, and meet new friends to paddle with.

Weather permitting, the May meet-up will be held on Sunday, May 13th, from 2:00 – 3:00 PM. We will paddle through the bayous, encounter wading and diving birds, and discover a bit about mangrove ecosystems. For the more adventurous folks, there’s also an opportunity to portage over Old Blind Pass, and into the Gulf!

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). A limited number of loaner boards are available, but must be reserved via email in advance. The group will meet at the Bowman’s Beach canoe/kayak launch. It's hard to miss our orange SUP Trailer! Parking is $5 per hour.
