Peak Season is upon us here on Sanibel Island

main-7Ok, I have to admit I’m not crazy about the extra traffic and some of the longer-than-usual waits at the local restaurants, but all-in-all I do love this time of year. It seems that everything is in full swing; fishing charters, shelling charters, Strauss Theatre, Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, Sanibel Thriller (speed boat tour), Historical Village, and the Edison-Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers, to name a few.

It’s great to see families spending time together on the beach, creating memories and priceless moments that will last a lifetime. Love the postings on facebook where that special time is there for the extended families and friends to share. It’s great to meet the kids of some of the folks that were married right here on this same beach that draws them back again and again.

Do you think your group would like to spend some time on Sanibel Island, on the beach? Since we are pretty much in season, now it’s time for those of you that belong to organizations, associations, and clubs, to start planning for summer getaways and group functions.

Summer and fall are the lowest room rates of the year and a very good time to plan a group trip. True, that is our rainy season but most days that amounts to an hour or so of rain each late afternoon, when it’s time to come in from the beach and clean-up for the evening’s activities.

Well, I must check on a corporate board meeting we have in our Palm Room, then enter a rooming list for an upcoming motor coach tour for later this year, and yes, walk down to the Star Bar and see how lunch is going on the beach…a perfect day for it!

    When is the best time to visit Sanibel for deep-sea fishing. Thanks

    Ok, here’s the truth. We don’t really have deep sea fishing here, as there is no deep sea. Back-bay fishing here is awesome and sport fishing is spectacular during the appropriate seasons. In the Gulf of Mexico you have to go out about 200 miles to get the same depth you would find in 6 miles off the east coast of Florida. The Gulf is much more shallow. Don’t get me wrong there is wonderful fishing here; just different than on the ocean-side. Here is a link that will answer many of your questions about fishing off the coast of Sanibel Island.
    Thank you for your inquiry!
