Small but thorough look at the life of sea shells. I will never walk on the beach again without thinking about some of the things I learned here. The presentation by the naturalist downstairs could be improved a lot. She seemed a bit bored by...More

A wealth of information available for Sanibel and Captiva staffed with helpful volunteers. We also stopped briefly after hours on our way on to Sanibel; greatly appreciate some information being available outside the building.

Best sunset in La Florida - excellent to rest, relax and have fun. The hotel south sea resort is great for vacation.

If you're new to Sanibel Island, this place is a must. It's full of helpful brochures, maps, and resaurant menus, plus real live human beings who can answer your quesitons. It's the first thing you come to as you exit the causeway.

Sanibel Lighthouse is a quick visit, IF you can find parking. We also enjoyed the drive to Captiva. There are good beach view and interesting houses along the way. Shell-collecting on any of the beaches is a favorite... More
First time visitors coming in eat my October. Just wondering if the wildlife is still active during this time. We are interested in the darling refuge and dolphin excursions. Also would this time be considered your "slow season"? Thanks!

Very good time to visit because you will be past the truly hot period of summer. So I would not call this off season but the snowbirds from up north USA and Canada don't usually come until it is cold in their home areas... More
