Spring Break Attractions for Kids On Sanibel

Ok, so your kids are not going to be satisfied just walking the beach, scooping shells, swimming, biking and boating.

They need to do more than that to feel like they have been on a vacation?

There's no need for a moment of boredom when you vacation on Sanibel, for Spring Break or any time of the year.

As mentioned in earlier posts on this blog, the Sanibel Sea School offers programs for adults and children. For children with curiosity about their environment, there is no better way to learn.

The Sanibel Sea School promotes marine conservation. Through research and education, Sanibel Sea School teaches children and adults about marine ecosystems. Using the setting of the barrier island habitats of Sanibel and Captiva as an opportunity to touch, feel and understand, the school provides a close up of sea life. Through this experience, students will gain an intimate perspective of the ocean, its inhabitants and the tightly woven fabric of our global environment.

Completion of a class is awarded with a certificate of mastery, something your children can bring home along with their shell collections.

In addition to the Sanibel Sea School, C.R.O.W. (the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife) offers children and families an opportunity to see how wildlife is rescued and treated successfully before release back into the wild. If your children have ever expressed interest in being a veterinarian, this experience will be fascinating for them.

And if they need a little more excitement, there are segways and scooters for rent on Island, parasailing adventures, and canoe and kayak rentals. And, just off the Island are the rides and games at Fort Myers beach. From March 21 on, the Water Park in Cape Coral will provide all the thrills your child needs in a family friendly environment.

Bored on Sanibel? Only if you want to be!
