We don't usually stop at visitor centers but this one was a must do so we would know where to park around the island without being towed etc. they have pretty knowledgable employees about the overall island and give out highlighted maps etc. I will say they should know a bit about the places they refer people to...one woman got...

We are very glad we stopped on our way onto the Island. Since it was our first visit to the Island and the roads seemed to be bumper to bumper, we thought it best to get our bearings before going any further. Happy we stopped, we were given all the info we needed in a friendly manner! We waded through... More

We stopped in to get info about Sanibel. Already had reservations for the West Wind Inn, but we picked up information on possible activitities and great information on where to eat and shop. I would highly recommend a stop here if you are spending any time on the island, especially if it is more than just a day trip.

If this is your first trip to Sanibel-Captiva, a stop at this C of C is a good idea. It is literally located right on the way onto the island, easy on, easy off. They have a lot of info available and are ready to share.

We thought we would just stop in and pick up a map and hopefully gain a few ideas. A volunteer came over to us as we walked in and spent a very pleasant 10 minutes with us answering questions and offering suggestions. She provided us with ideas on where we might visit and suggested restaurants in the area. When we... More

You MUST make this your first stop! A packet awaits you with info of all the island's goings on for the week! It is as if you called ahead and ordered it. There are many brochures of other island offerings, as well. Staff is very warm, amiable and helpful!

This was our first stop on our first visit to Sanibel. We were given so much helpful information - maps, and brochures/books. The staff showed us best places for shelling, sunrises, and sunsets.
