    I would like to join you for this trip and I have a tandem. The problem is I am trying to take two of my great nieces with me. Would anyone else have a tandem and be willing to carry one of my nieces? They both swim and would be wearing life vests.

    The Jacksonville Zoo allows paddlers entering from the zoo dock free entrance to the zoo, A great policy to encourage boating and kayaking to the zoo. They also have a very large and nice dock at the zoo. You can find photos online.

    I've never entered the zoo by paddle, how does that work?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
