The Seminole Canoe and Kayak club is a private club located on the Ortega River. The club has a long heritage, founded in 1918 and originally chartered as the Seminole Canoe and Yacht Club in 1928.

Although the original members raced and sailed canoes and brought home trophies, today we like to cruise. We enjoy paddling the local rivers, enjoying nature, friendship and an occasional swim in the springs as we pass.

The club organizes several trips a month on local water ways such as the Suwanee, St. Mary’s, Santa Fe, and Ocklawaha rivers; the Ichetucknee and Juniper Springs and into the Okefenokee Swamp. Occasionally we plan overnight trips out of state.

In addition to club paddles, we gather at the club house for festivities such as the annual green corn festival (an Indian tradition) and Christmas party. The club house is also available to Club members for private events and boat storage.

The club board meets at the club house 7:30 on the second Monday of each month. While this is a business meeting all club and prospective club members are invited to attend, and many do. Occasionally the meeting is followed by a presentation.

The club is funded by annual dues from a membership base comprised of couples, families and singles and represent a wide age group with many longtime members.

If you are interested in joining the club or learning more about it please contact the club secretary Hope Perdue at lydiahopeperdue@yahoo.com or commodore John Ruskuski at ruskuskijohn@gmail.com and join us at one of our monthly meetings. Better yet, join us one of our trips.

Membership is by application, available at the club meeting, accompanied with the annual dues of $53.50 plus an additional $10 new member fee.



The club address is:
4619 Ortega Farms Circle,
Jacksonville, FL 32210.
