This week, still meet at the sand volleyball courts to the left of the Naples Pier for a fun friendly co-ed game of volleyball and watch the sunset. If you're not into playing volley ball then just bring a beach chair or towel to sit on and take in all the beach has to offer.

Sanibel Causeway Island B
19999 Sanibel Island Causeway, Sanibel, FL (map)Selected By: Colleen
Let's meet early to do a paddle to Picnic Island for breakfast and then attend some of the events on Causeway Island A - the first island as you go over the bridge. Meet on the second island (B) across the street from the public main restrooms. (where we had the luau) I am not sure how crowded it will get but leaving this early should be OK with parking on the second island. They are not letting anyone park on the first island. There are many activities going on - check out the site below.
Bring breakfast, drinks, and all safety gear for a fun day on the water. Bring lunch, too if you plan on staying the day! They will also be selling food at the festival.
I am not sure about the cost this year. You can buy a wristband for $60 which will get you into all the events for four days. Or you can pay as you go....not sure what events cost money. Just have some cash available. (I think there may be an $8 charge for some things....and some classes you have to sign up for. So check the website!)
Guided trips, demonstrations, on-water instruction, Stand-Up Paddleboard activities, green events, speakers, new product testing, announcements, trolley service and food. Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
No rentals available on site. If you just want to attend the festival and not do the morning paddle, your best bet is to catch the trolley at one of the locations posted on the web site. If you want to rent, there is a guided tour from Bunche Beach that morning. You can also rent at Bowditch Point and paddle about three miles to the festival. Watch the currents under the bridge.
Free day at the zoo.The first Saturday of every month is free for Collier County residents so lets get togehter and enjoy the afternoon. Lions, Tigers, and bears oh-my!
