Nighttime Fun at ‘Tween Waters

My boys tend to be more night owls than early birds, so we’re always looking for things to do in the evening. Luckily, there are several activities (even on a barrier island) to keep your crew happy after the sun goes down.

Karaoke at Crow’s Nest

Got a Lady Gaga in the making, or a Bruno Mars wanna-be? Every Wednesday, from 8:30pm till 11:30pm, you and your kids can take the stage and belt out your favorite tunes. A prompter displays the words and the crowd will cheer you on. This is fun for all ages.

Meteor Showers

Being on a barrier island has its advantages, especially during meteor showers. Bring a blanket, plop yourself on the sand, and look up. Several are scheduled from August 25 to December 24, 2016.

Moon Set

Just as the sun sets, so does the moon – and it is quite a sight. Click the attached link for a schedule, then head to the beach to watch the magic.

Big Arts Theater

‘Tween Waters Inn is a proud sponsor of this 414-seat performing arts center on Sanibel, and their lineup this fall and winter includes Monday Movie Nights. Plus, A Christmas Carol begins in December. www.bigarts.org

Astronomy Cruise

What will you see? The Big Dipper? The Seven Sisters? Jupiter and Mars? Budding astronomers will love this nighttime astronomy cruise from Captiva Cruises. Prices are currently $45 for adults and $35 for kids 2-12.

Adult Fun

Crow’s Nest Beach Bar and Grille is THEE place for late night dancing. Stop by and enjoy the live music every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Have a great evening – and may you see lots of shooting stars!

Olympics at ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort & Spa

Kayak Captiva

The much-anticipated Olympics have arrived, and we’re enjoying every minute watching athletes compete on television, but you don’t have to be an Olympic athlete to enjoy some of the events you see — you can do it all righOlympics Beach Volleyballt here on your next vacation to ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort & Spa. Which sport will you take on for the gold?

Swimming: ‘Tween Waters Inn is home to an Olympic-sized swimming pool, which means not only can you race laps against your bestie, but it’ll be official size requirements too. So get your Phelps on, and swim laps — just don’t plan on any Olympic diving — it’s strictly prohibited.

Beach Volleyball: We can’t all look as great at diving in the sand as Misty May or Kerri Walsh, but we can have fun trying! You’ll find a beach volleyball net set up on our private beach, with volleyballs to rent at the front desk, for your fun in the sun.

Canoeing/Kayaking: Did you know that canoeing was an Olympic sport? It’s certainly not the most notorious, but it is definitely a fun way to get out on the water and enjoy a little competition. Go for gold and try out your speed canoeing or kayaking, with ‘Tween Waters Inn’s peaceful open waters in the Bay.

Innsider Tip: For less aerobic exercise, catch Olympic events on live television at the Crow’s Nest Beach Bar & Grille, and enjoy a drink!

Tween_waters_inn__captiva_island-5554Tennis: It’s iconic. It’s a cardio workout. And the resort has four courts to try out your best backhand. If you’re looking for more info on the tennis courts, check out fellow Innsider Lyle’s hilarious article as he tackles tennis at ‘Tweenies.

Sailing: It’s great to get out on the open water any time you visit ‘Tween Waters Inn, but what better way to do it than sailing our beautiful sea? What’s better, the resort has a sailboat docked on at the property — New Moon Sailing — to charter, complete with sailing captain. If you’re looking for more competitive sailing, or even to try some lessons, Captiva is home to America’s #1 sailing school — Colgate’s Offshore Sailing School.

Plus there’s even more ways to enjoy the Olympics while visiting your favorite Captiva resort — try Golf at Sanibel Island Golf Club (where ‘Tween Waters Inn guests receive a discount), synchronized swimming, cycling (rent bikes right on property!), combine events for a triathlon, or simply take a sprint down the beach. You might even try rhythmic gymnastics — I’ll come take pictures if you do!
