A Mellow Summer Day: Kayaking and Lunch at Kabobji

Kayaking in the beautiful Biscayne Bay in the company of fellow Borderlinkers is the right way to start a mellow Sunday morning.

Part I:  Kayaking at Oleta Park - 9:00 AM

Oleta Park is Florida's largest urban park. We'll kayak on narrow river tributaries through beautiful mangrove forests before heading out towards Biscyane Bay.

We'll rendezvous at the bottom of the stairs of Blue Moon Rentals - about 1/2 mile in from Oleta's main entrance.

Recommended: hat, sunscreen, bathing suit, water, and plastic ziplock for any items (car keys, etc.) you may want to bring on the kayak.

Prepare to get wet.  These are ocean kayaks with openings on the bottom where the water comes and goes.

You might want to bring a change of clothes for lunch (there are cold water showers if you'd like to refresh a bit).

Oleta Park entrance fee: $6.

Group discount kayak rental prices:  $20/person for one and 1/2 hours on tandem kayak, $28 for single kayak. a.m. 

Cash only please.

To save time, please print, fill out and bring the liability waiver form.

Part II: Lunch at Kabobji - 11:30 p.m.

3055 NE 163 street  North Miami Beach, FL 33160

(In the middle of a large mini-mall (with Hiro Sushi on one end and a bike shop on the other) slightly West of the entrance to Oleta Park.

Kaboji has delicious middle-eastern food and features a wide array of great selections of traditional dishes including Falafel, Shawarma, Kabob, Hummus and Tabbouli.

Prices: $8-20, cash only please.

See you soon!

    What a great time with the always intrepid Borderlinkers! The heavy rain falling on the waters of the canal as we were returning was gorgeous.

    Thanks Jas for organizing the meetup. It was lot of fun even though it was raining in the time of way back. I would definitely try it again. I apologize to leave earlier as I didn't feel comfortable with wet cloths.

    Arrived late to the kayaking event, and enjoyed the beach instead. Was wonderful in the park. Have a great summer!
