A Paddling Documentary Double Feature

  • Sanibel Sea School (map)

On Thursday, October 10th at 6 PM, the Ocean Tribe Paddling Club will host a documentary screening double feature. Join us for popcorn and a follow-up discussion at Sanibel Sea School. 

“2600 above 60” (25min)
Join four men on a 2600-mile canoe journey through blizzards, frozen lakes, and mountains as they travel for 130 days from the Alaskan coast to the Hudson Bay. From the challenge of paddling up the Rocky Mountains to the stark beauty of the tundra, this film is an adventure through North America's last great wilderness.

“Feel of Vision” (26min)
Lonnie Bedwell, a former Navy Petty Officer turned extreme adventure athlete, became the first blind person to whitewater kayak the entire length of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in a solo kayak. Lonnie previously described his blindness as a wall that prevented him from moving forward and living a full life. "Kayaking acted as a door that opened to the whole world". 

Our paddling community is open to everyone, and your first event is always free. After that, we request that you purchase a club membership via our website. Ocean Tribe Outfitters is a branch of Sanibel Sea School that helps the local paddling community better explore, enjoy, and understand the ocean.
