Sanibel Island Sea School
After more than a dozen trips to Sanibel Island, Florida– the amazing little barrier island off the coast of Ft. Myers, 2/3 of which is devoted to the wildlife conservation– I thought I’d seen everything the destination had to offer. So we were delighted to discover the Sanibel Sea School, a great organization devoted to teaching kids and adults alike about marine conservation. Founded by J. Bruce Neill, who has a PhD in conservation biology, and his wife Evelyn, the school offers excellent half-day, full-day and week-long programs that offer visitors an immersive, interactive exploration of Sanibel’s abundant marine life. My daughter Alexandra had a blast, learning why the island is considered one of the world’s best shelling beaches and getting up close ‘n’ personal with some of its most intriguing inhabitants, including the endangered snowy plover, sand dollars, bivalves, fighting conchs and a broad variety of fish. It was definitely one of our favorite experiences during our week-long trip to Sanibel. –Bret Love
