Cruising Through the Canals

  • Sanibel Boat Ramp 888 Sextant Drive 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.

For our July event, we will meet at the Sanibel Boat Ramp. From the put-in, it’s a quick paddle east to the Sanibel canals. Once in the canals, we can loop around, check out the various wading birds, observe mangrove crabs as they scuttle to and fro, and enjoy looking at Sanibel from a new perspective. The paddle will be held on Tuesday, July 17th from 10:30 am to noon. 

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 Sanibel Boat Ramp, where parking is available for $5 per hour or with a valid parking permit. 

Your first Ocean Tribe Paddlers event is free, then it is requested that you purchase a membership online at Please RSVP to Stay tuned for information about future meet-ups!
