Having lived in Florida for 5 years now, we found the grounds and the identification of the native landscape informative and educational. Free to guests and residents.

We drove past it because there isn't a sign for the botanical gardens. That's because it's actually just at Sanibel Moorings Resort. They wanted $5 for parking and leaflet. We decided to go for it. If you live in Florida (we are near Tampa Bay)...More

We happened to be staying here so were able to appreciate the gardens every day. One day a week a tour is offered for $5 with the gardener for the general public.

This was our third or fourth visit to Sanibel Moorings. Everything is so clean and trimmed with markers on every plant. The tours are the best.

We stayed at The Moorings and they had a daily walking guide availability. One of the many extras. The guide explains every thing on their grounds and gardens.

Interesting 90 minute tour of the gardens. The location, in a condo development is a bit different but the variety of vegetation is amazing. Sandra, our guide was well informed and kept it nteresting. We took our dog along too!
