Another great summer is rolling along! We haven’t had any storms, and our weather has been typical of Sanibel Island summers. Scattered rain in the afternoon, and perfect beach and boating conditions. Boat charter businesses, as well as local tour boats have been busy as locals and tourists alike soak up some sun.
One of our activities that always has great summertime appeal is Sanibel & Captiva's turtle nesting season. As you walk along our beaches you will notice small fenced-in areas with “turtle nest” signs. According to the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, Sanibel has a total of 495 nests and Captiva Island has 125. So far 164 nests have hatched! You can find more information, and keep up on the turtle tally, Here.
