Sanibel Sea School Offers After-School Canoeing

April 12, 2021
A four-session, after-school canoeing series has been added to Sanibel Sea School’s lineup beginning Tuesday, April 20. Participants will learn canoeing basics and hone their paddling skills while exploring the waters of Sanibel.
They will learn basic paddling strokes, how to maneuver the boat, safety techniques, and play fun on-the-water games. Sanibel Sea School has traditionally offered canoeing during select weeks of summer camp and has decided to host an entire series due to its popularity. 
“Canoeing is a great way to reach places on the water that we can’t otherwise get to,” said Education Programs Manager Shannon Stainken. “We’ll be keeping our eyes out for dolphins, manatees, and even stingrays.”
The after-school canoe program will be held on Tuesday from 3:30pm to 5:30pm. Participants can register for one session or sign up for the whole series.
All after-school sessions are $20 per student. Register today: After-School Canoe Signup. For more information, call (239) 472-8585 or email Scholarships are available.
