Chamber Magazine Cover
Dedicated To Longtime Member
The Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce dedicated its 2017 Visitor’s
Guide cover to the memory of Paul McCarthy, owner of Captiva Cruises and
longtime chamber member.
The cover photo of Lady Chadwick, the Captiva Cruises flagship vessel, was unveiled
Tuesday, October 11 during the monthly business luncheon at the Captiva Island Yacht
Club, where McCarthy was also a member.
“He left us with a rich and full legacy of stewardship and eco-tourism embodied in
Captiva Cruises, whose goal will continue to respect and appreciate the natural beauty of
Southwest Florida,” the Visitor’s Guide dedication states. “In 2013, the chamber honored
Paul as Business Person of the Year. He had a generous spirit, a zest for life, and shared
his laughter and passion with everyone who touched his life. Paul will be missed by all of
McCarthy, a Boston native, passed away August 24 at the age of 63. He practiced
law in Chicago prior to discovering the tour boat business. He started Captiva Cruises in
1986 and made the island his full-time home in the early 1990s. McCarthy partnered
with organizations like the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation to bring a high-
quality environmental message to his Captiva Cruises passengers.
McCarthy’s family from Boston, along with Captiva Cruises staff members Jenny
Rando and Brad Junghans, were in attendance for the unveiling. The Visitor’s Guide
will be available late January and can be found at the chamber visitor’s center, located at
1159 Causeway Road.

Lions Screeners Receive
Certificates Of Appreciation
The Lions Clubs in
Lee County offer
a free program
of vision, hearing and
diabetes screening for
local preschoolers. The
Club is a member of this
group, and has been since
its inception. In addition
to being responsible for
screenings on Sanibel,
the San-Cap Lions Club
plans to participate in
preschooler screenings in
Fort Myers and throughout
Last year, participating Lee County Lions Clubs held screenings at 26 preschools,
a formidable task considering that not all clubs participate. This year, the screening
program has been assigned 34 preschools.
The Sanibel Captiva Lions Club’s fundraising activities support the purchase of state-
of-the-art equipment to facilitate accurate screening, and all participating Lions receive
training from professionals in the various fields of inquiry.
Is it worth it? You decide: In 2015 and thus far in 2016, the Lee Lions Preschool
Screening Program has seen a total of 716 children, 42 of whom have been referred for
further evaluation of vision anomalies, and 102 have been referred for hearing difficulties.
Would these problems be caught without screenings? Eventually, they might be. But early
detection in this age group can be the key to successful outcomes.
In addition to the preschool program, the San-Cap Lions Club will also be scheduling
four adult vision, hearing and diabetes screenings this season. These will be held at the
Island Senior Center (Center 4 Life) and the Sanibel Recreation Center. The dates, times
and locations of these adult screenings will be posted online at sanibelcaptivalions.org.
All screenings are free and open to all.
