TBE to offer discount on cruises, kayak tours
January 9, 2020


On Jan. 11, Tarpon Bay Explorers will offer a 25 percent discount on all cruises and kayak tours as part of a yearlong celebration of the establishment of the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge.

Throughout 2020, the refuge, "Ding" Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge and TBE will host a variety of events and offerings to celebrate Jay Norwood "Ding" Darling, the man responsible for fostering a community mentality of conservation.

"There are a lot of people responsible for Sanibel's culture and heritage, but I have trouble thinking that Sanibel would be the way it is without 'Ding,'" TBE Assistant Manager Adam Sauerland said. "Encouraging people to experience our tours hopefully will inform visitors about 'Ding' and his influence while enjoying incredible wildlife sightings."

Tarpon Bay Explorers is at 900 Tarpon Bay Road, Sanibel.
