We really enjoyed the time we spent strolling through the Sanibel Moorings botanical gardens. As an island resident I always marvel at the beauty and variety of the many plants, flowers and trees. It was so interesting to learn about native and non-native plants and animals. It was also interesting to hear from our knowledgeable guide, Sandra, about the effect that Hurricane Irma had on the island. I highly recommend this guided tour

This is the grounds of a waterfront condominium complex. Many labeled native plants fairly well maintained plants. Colorful in early March and I imagine getting more colorful until July. Very beautiful beach on the south side and canal front homes on the north have docks.

They offer guided tours Wednesday mornings seasonally, otherwise it is free to roam about.

Thank you for taking time to review our Botanical Gardens. I am glad to hear that you were able to enjoy the hard work that we put into the gardens! We are still making changes since the hurricane to signage and plants, so be sure to come back again and check for updates. We do offer the guided tours Wednesday mornings at 9 am, but the self-guided tours are no longer available. Please make sure to call ahead for reservations.

Safe Travels.

This was an interesting place with lots a information about native and non-native plants. It was kind of weird though that it was basically scattered about the grounds of the condo complex.

The gardens at the Sanibel Moorings resort are beautifully maintained and well laid out. Our guide was very open with us about the damage that hurricane Irene dealt the gardens and what was responding and what was too far gone. She was entertaining on the walk and answered all questions in a way we could understand. It was well worth the 1 1/2 hours and the entrance fee. Only held on Wednesdays and call ahead for reservations.

Thank you so much for taking our garden tour and sharing your experience. Hurricane Irma definitely left some damage in her wake, but the gardens are coming back stronger than ever! Come back and see us again the next time you are in the area.
