Caladesi Island kayak and beach bumb...

We will meet on the beach just west of the kayak rental location.

Let's paddle out to the island and through the mangroves taking a nice swim after in the surf! About 4 hours paddling and hanging out on the island. We can go for drinks after! Be ready to leave by 9. I will be parked close to the rental area with a tan Buick SUV, Florida Southern tag.

Bring your paddle, lots of water and snacks/lunch and sunscreen. Did I miss anything?

Check out http://www.floridapaddlingtrails.com/tripreport.asp?map=783 for information about the island.

    Sam I dont like cancelling, but I am. Didnt get a good nights sleep and I am just too tired to make this drive especially the return drive and another function tonight. Was looking forward to meeting some new friends. Enjoy.

      Sam. I won't make it no matter what the wind, as I'm now under the weatherThx for the offer of a kayak.

    Even though I was cheerleader for this event, trying to get the two groups together, TBA has cancelled and will reschedule; and I'm backing out too. The rain may hold off, and mangroves trails should be okay, but the wind is from the West or Gulfside where the activities were planned.

    ok. Thanks. It's about a 2 hour drive for us, so we may decide earlier based on checking reports before leaving.

      I ckd the profiles, looks like David B is closest to the paddle. Sent him a note asking for weather reports. My phone says 60% chance of rain through 10am. But Sam I like your thoughts on the wind. It is a rather protected passage and waves cant get too big b/c of depth of water and protection.

      Just saw weather report. Looks like everything has blown through and tomorrow will turn into a beautiful day. Even the winds look like about 11 mph.

      April 18, 2014

  • Melodi R.

    Any concern about the winds tomorrow?

    April 18, 2014

    • Sam G.

      Yes / Winds are going to be 15-20 mph from the WSW - West. We will decide at launch time if it is no do-able.

    • Bobby

      I have the same concerns, not only the winds but rain. Seems this system is not moving as quickly as predicted earlier.

    Anyone got a tandem to rent?
