Summer is here and it's time once again to canoe the Little Wikiva river from King's Landing downstream 8 miles to the Wikiva marina. This is an OACS summer favorite and everyone who comes along has a great time!
Don't let the 8 miles scare you, this is a great day for beginners and pros alike. The swift 3 to 4 mile per hour current does most of the work for you as the Wikiva's twists and turns guide you through some of the most beautiful natural scenery in the Central Florida area.
Wildlife is in abundance and is easily seen along the banks of the river as seen in these photos from previous years: http://www.meetup.com/Orlando-Area-Christia...
We'll meet at King's Landing at 9 AM and launch from their docks. Canoe rental is $30 ($15 each for 2 people) and includes:
- Canoe & Paddles
- Flotation Devices
- Pickup at Marina
Two people per canoe works best, so plan early on canoeing with a partner or pair-up before launch.
If you have your own kayak or canoe, you may launch it at King's Landing with the group for a fee of $10.
There are places along the way to break for a picnic lunch, so bring food and drink with you but note that Styrofoam containers are not allowed.
Dress comfortably - shorts, sandals, hats, and sunscreen are preferred. Waterproof as necessary as everyone went in the water at least one time three years ago!
RSVP "Yes" if you can definitely attend. We must tell King's Landing how many canoes we will need. Watch for more info on this as the event date approaches.
Get your directions before leaving. There's little to no cell phone signal along the river so we can't answer your call if you need directions.
Post car pool ideas below.
