Our New Members- Ty Symvoski

Tarpon Bay Explorers Nature Tours & Rentals. Ty and his family have had a connection to Sanibel since the 1920. Two of his family’s residences are now part of the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. Although he didn’t grow up on the Island, he visited often. After graduating from the University of Michigan he got his first job with the newly formed City of Sanibel’s planning department staying on for the next ten years. Ty told us he bought his first house on Sanibel on Periwinkle Way for about $1,000. Ty left Sanibel for adventure and travel eventually landing a job in the planning department in Key West. The commonality of these two Paradise Islands is obvious; beaches, sand, sun, great lifestyle, tourism and a Rotary Club. Years went by and Ty found himself lured back to Sanibel and back as an active member of the Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club.
