Valentine’s Day 2018 falls on a Wednesday this year, offering up the perfect excuse to break up your week and enjoy some quality time together with a jaunt to Sanibel Island. Here are our favorite ideas for how to spend Valentine’s Day on Sanibel Island with your special someone.
Enjoy Sanibel Island’s Pristine Nature
Start the day with a sunrise stroll along the beach or take a morning meander through J. N. Ding Darling Wildlife Preserve with a variety of fun tours including the birding tour or a biking tour!
Valentine’s Day Sunset Dolphin Cruise
Cruise along the tranquil waters of San Carlos bay with your sweetheart while watching dolphins frolic and hundreds of birds flock into their evening roost. Adventures in Paradise will be running the cruise on February 14 at 5:30pm!
Get Out on the Water
Rent a pair of kayaks or stand up paddleboards from Tarpon Bay Explorers and play on the water.
