Just across the bridge from Sanibel at Port Sanibel Marina, this is your one-stop center for all things outdoors. If you don’t want to make the drive, the turquoise trolley will pick you up at your hotel or condo.
Most fun in my estimation — especially for families — is the sealife encounter that takes you offshore to Picnic Island to net for treasures in the shallows off the beach. A naturalist then identifies the finds onboard.
They also offer shelling and dolphin excursions and fishing charters, rent boats and kayaks, and lead naturalist-narrated kayaking tours into the mangroves.
