It's happening! We are set to paddle in the town of Crystal River, winter home of manatees.
I will be in Florida for a couple weeks before our MAIN EVENT on March 29th in Crystal River. If anyone else is in that area just before, be aware there will at least one other paddling event in the Crystal River area.
We have an exact location for our launch and kayak rentals at Manatee Tour and Dive. http://www.manateetouranddive.com/index.html
We have a special group rate of $30 per kayak rental but keep in mind that these are sit-on top kayaks. They also have snorkeling tours, airboat tours and swim with the manatees tours. We will be getting there late in the manatee season so hopefully there are still some hanging around.
When you get a chance, take a look at this recommended video on youtube about paddling with the manatees.
Let everyone know where you are staying, where you are eating, beaching, camping, hoteling, etc. This is going to be sooooo much fun!
