Extremely accurate bathymetric map of the Sanibel Island, Pine Island, Florida and surrounding area. Sanibel is a barrier island — a collection of sand on the leeward (downwind) side of Pine Island, which is made of more solid coral rock. It’s known for its bounty of seashells which is a result of the island’s location and its east-west orientation. It sits on a large plateau that extends west into the Gulf of Mexico for several miles, creating a shelf for the shells to collect on and eventually wash onto the shore.
This three dimensional map is carved from Baltic birch wood, framed and has a acrylic covering to protect the wood. Professional cartographers are used in the creation of each individual chart in order to insure the utmost accuracy. Some maps come in two sizes in order to fit virtually any area in the home, office or boat. We have charts from areas across the U.S. available on a drop ship basis. This is a great item at an unbelievable price. If you are searching for a particular area, please call or email.
The color will differ slightly with both the frame and background as each of the maps are hand stained and may vary from the picture.
