Sanibel Luminary

Ho Ho Ho! The holiday season is on its way and the festivities Sanibel Island are just getting started.

If you’ve never spent time on Sanibel Island during Christmas Time, here’s what you can expect. Though palm trees replace pine trees, snow and cold weather are replaced warm gulf breezes, celebrating the holidays is on Sanibel is just as festive as anywhere else in the country during the month of December.

The season kicks off at the annual Luminary Holiday Stroll on December 7th, 2018. The Luminary Holiday Stroll, hosted by the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce is a community-wide holiday event that brings together residents, visitors, businesses and organizations, promoting goodwill and community spirit. Some of our visitors make early reservations especially for the event.

As you “stroll the trail”, you’ll visit numerous island-based businesses and stop to visit fun attractions– Santa visits, photos with Santa, a live nativity scene, music and activities for the entire family included!

On December 8th, BIG ARTS presents their annual Concert Band Holiday Performance. Get into the joyous mood of the holidays with an epic holiday concert! This is another BIG ARTS annual community event and a perennial, sell-out favorite.

Celebrate Christmas Eve as only as you can on Sanibel.  Join Adventures in Paradise for Santa’s Dolphin & Wildlife Cruise to Picnic Island. You may ask “Where is Santa on his last day before flying out?” On a deserted island in the waters surrounding Sanibel, of course!


Bring the family cruise out among the dolphins to visit with Santa where he’ll be waiting with gifts for all the kids. Photos of your little ones on Santa’s lap will be provided! Reservations Required. Limited Availability. To book your spots call 239-472-8443 or visit us on the web
