MAGNIFICENT FULL MOON PADDLE ON BRADEN RIVER – Launching from Jiggs Landing for a leisurely 2 hour/4 mile paddle. Enjoy quiet waters escorted by the almost full moon and possibly the red eyes of a gator or twenty. It is a great way to begin experiencing the beauty of night paddling! While not for first time kayakers, beginning kayakers who can paddle 4 miles can enjoy this paddle
