Full Moon Paddle

  • Bowmans Beach 1700 Bowmans Beach Rd Sanibel, FL, 33957 United States (map)

On Saturday, September 14th, the Ocean Tribe Paddling Club will host a full moon paddle through the beautiful mangrove canals around Bowman’s Beach. Enjoy sunset views over the Gulf while paddling along winding canals filled with jumping mullet, squawking wading birds and peaceful manatees. Once the sun has retired for the day, we can turn our attention to the moon as it illuminates our way home.


Those interested in joining the group should meet at Bowman's Beach kayak launch at 6:45 PM. The paddle will begin at 7:00 PM, which will put us on the water for the 7:30 PM sunset. The paddle 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 oceantribepaddlers@sanibelseaschool.org. 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.
