Braden River full moon (almost) night paddle

Wayne is leading a 2 hour paddle for the Manatee County Natural Resources Department. SAG has 5 spots reserved. 

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

Wayne is our volunteer leader

Some things to consider before signing up for this paddle:

The trip will be in the dark. We will need to stay close together.

Weather, wind and currents can increase the difficulty of any paddle.

Dress in layers so you can take off or add if you get too warm or cold.

A flashlight is mandatory.

Where:

Jiggs Landing is located at [masked]rd Street East in Bradenton. Restrooms are available.

Central Bradenton: Take US 41 to SR 70/53rd Ave. Go east toward I-75. Take a right on Caruso Road. Continue south on Caruso Road to the bend in the road; Jiggs Landing is located at the point where the road curves to the east.

From I-75: take the exit for SR 70 West. Make a left onto Caruso Road. Continue south on Caruso Road to the bend in the road; Jiggs Landing is located at the point where the road curves to the east.
