Please confirm that you are an experienced, energetic paddler who can paddle at about 3.7 mph for a couple of hours. If you are not, you can join us on walks, but not on kayaking trips.

I consider myself an energetic person. I have been paddling with both the Naples and Ft Myers kayak groups. I prefer moderate length and paced paddles.

How many miles can you comfortably paddle? You need to be able to paddle 7-8 miles at a good speed with only one short break, in order to paddle with us. Sometimes, we are not able to get out of our boats for that break.

10 miles for as long as it takes, 3-4 hours, up to 5-6 hours. I like to take water breaks, photographs and stop for lunch on loner paddles. I paddle for the pleasure of being out in nature and on the water. I love going to places I have not been.

Do you plan to walk with us? If so, will you bring your dog?

NO walking. No dog.

Have you read and do you agree to the Waiver of Liability ? You need to answer that you have read the waiver and do agree with it.


Please read. No need to respond. No guests on paddles ever. People who are "no shows" twice will be automatically dropped from the group. You can change your "YES" RSVP to "NO" any time before the paddle, but "no shows" are not welcome in the group.
