Kayak Wekiva River from Kings Landing

One way paddle from King’s Landing on Rock Springs Run to take out at Wekiva Marina.   

Kayaks are available for rent. Outfitter has 10 single kayaks, 2 tandem kayaks, and many canoes.  Rentals include pickup an marina.  Kayaks are on  a first come, first serve basis.  Because of this I have changed the start time to 9am.  If you are renting, please come a bit earlier.  Also, please mention Heartland Chapter Florida Trail. Ten or more rentals will get a 10% discouint. If you are renting, please call[masked] to verify rates.  My notes from conversation are less than posted rates on website.  Link below.

http://kingslandingfl.com/

There is a $10/boat charge for put-in. Commercial shuttle is available, the fee is $10/boat (total of $20/boat for put in & pickup) If we have enough people interestedwe will do our own shuttle.  If we shuttle, there will be a $5/car fee for parking at the marina.

Bring:  Kayak, paddle, life jacket, water, snacks/lunch, sun and bug protection, wide brimmed hat.

PLEASE INCLUDE A COMMENT RE IF YOU ARE BRINGING YOUR OWN OR RENTING.  And, if bringing your own, are you interested in shuttling.

Another reason for changing the start time from 10am to 9am, if we do shuttling, that will take time; if not, you will need to sign up for pickup with outfitter when yoiu pay your fee to put in.

    Thank you everyone for coming & having patience with the unexpected challenges and delays. Found out all the deadfalls were less than a week old. If you come again at a less rainy time, water will be so much clearer. Again, thank you for coming.

    This is part of the email I sent to those signed up as of Weds 11pm.
    We will be doing our own shuttle for the people who bring their own kayaks. It will take at least 1/2 hour. Please be there by 9am so we can organize this. Some of us will stay with the kayaks @ King's Landing while all the cars are brought down to the take out at what used to be called Wekiva Marina. The name has changed, it is now Wekiva Island. The address is 1014 Miami Springs Drive.

    As mentioned on Meetup, there is a $10/boat charge for putting in. If the website, http://wekivaisland.com/, there will be a $1/person fee. Please note this is only charged on the weekends.

    Hi, planning to attend! We will bring a kayak trailer capable of transporting 6 or 7 additional kayaks to help shuttle if owners have alternate transportation (my car cannot take more passengers). We are glad to help!
