40th Year Taste of the Islands Event
November 1-30, 2021

Now in its 40th year, Taste of the Islands gives you access to special dining opportunities at the Island’s finest restaurants throughout the month of November. With your 2021 Taste Passport, you can sample Sanibel and Captiva Islands’ best restaurants. As you “crawl” across the islands, visit participating restaurants with (or even without) your passport. Then, turn it in to be entered into the drawing for exclusive prizes!

A portion of Taste of the Islands proceeds will benefit the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) on Sanibel Island.

Taste, Crawl and CROW for a
Good Cause!

The Taste of the Islands event was created to raise funds for a cause near and dear to the hearts of residents and visitors who love wildlife! The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife – affectionately known as CROW – is located on Sanibel Island, Florida. This teaching hospital and visitor education center is dedicated to saving wildlife through state-of-the-art veterinary care, research, education. and conservation medicine.

Whatever we can do to save wildlife is worth doing – and we love doing it together as a community! If it means having a fabulous time while tasting great food, crawling across beautiful Sanibel and Captiva Islands with friends, and CROW-ing about our cause, all the better!
