Sanibel Canal Paddle

  • Sanibel Boat Ramp (map)

On Thursday, October 3rd, the Ocean Tribe Paddling Club will host an afternoon paddling excursion through Sanibel’s east end canals. We will start our journey from the Sanibel Boat Ramp and paddle across a short stretch of San Carlos Bay, where we might spot dolphins or manatees on our way to the canal entrance. This paddle will take us through an area that is often overlooked by paddlers, but is rich in local flora and fauna. 

Those interested in joining the group should meet at the Sanibel Boat Ramp at 3:45 PM. The paddle will begin at 4:00 PM, and will last approximately one and a half hours. Participants are invited to bring their own vessel, or a limited number of loaner vessels can be reserved in advance by contacting Any weather related updates or schedule changes will be posted on the Ocean Tribe Outfitters Facebook page at least one hour prior to the event.

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.
