Ghosts on the Water? Sanibel Area Offers Great Tours

Always looking for something new to do on Island, I was thrilled when I tripped across an internet page talking about a Calusa Ghost Tour! I love the idea of encountering ghosts, love indian lore and paddling along the water in a canoe. But alas, the website where these ghost tours are described and arranged appears to be at least temporarily disabled. So I was not able to get any more information but I'll keep looking and post again in the future. This is just too interesting to forget!

But as I browsed through various websites, I was happy to find other not so usual activities in the Sanibel area and slightly beyond:

* Cruise with the marine biologist and naturalist of the Adventures in Paradise tour group in their Sealife Encounter. On this excursion, you will enjoy a wonderful trip for all ages with a unique, hands-on learning adventure. Cruise the bay while watching the dolphins at play, stopping at a deserted island for netting - so wear your beach shoes! This cruise includes a natural history narration, sampling of marine animals and on-board touch tanks for viewing the catch.

* Enjoy a 90-minute Swamp Buggy Tour through Babcock Ranch . Experienced guides offer in-depth descriptions of birds, animals, plants, and the cattle and horses that are raised on the ranch. Visitors will see panthers, alligators, and many other animals living in Southwest Florida.

* See the beautiful plants and trees at the Edison Estate. Edison's Botanical gardens include more than 1000 varieties of plants imported from all over the world.

* Take a walk on the Six Mile Slough Preserve by moonlight.

Everywhere, one turns, beauty and nature abound on Sanibel Island.
