Basic kayak instruction with Joyce: How to get in and out of your boat, how to hold a paddle and basic strokes. Then float the Weeki Wachee with her as a guide. She'll give tips and advice along the way :-)
The Weeki Wachee is a clear, cool first magnitude spring. Gorgeous. One of Florida's finest. Floating this spring you can usually see manatees - often moms with babies, water birds, raptors including eagles and sometimes otters.
We'll float from the put in near the headwaters down to Roger's Park. We'll stop and swim and eat lunch as we will.
Bring: water, lunch and sunscreen.
Cost: $35 includes kayak, shuttle, launch fee and instruction. $45 (also includes: transport to and from Tampa - meet at her house off Lake Magdalene - or at SR 54 and Suncoast Parkway). There are a total of 7 spots available through Joyce for this trip. In you are interested, post on the meetup and I'll send you her phone number and address. Prepayment is required to reserve your spot. Payment must be received no later than 3/31.
