Bear Cut Playday!

RATING Intermediate SK4, about 4 miles distance (plus playtime), strong currents, tidal rips, possible wind waves.


Join us for a fun morning playing just outside Bear Cut!


TRIP DESCRIPTION - Meet at Crandon Park Marina, paddle out Bear Cut, and hope for waves!  If you have little experience with waves and want to grow some, this is a good trip.  We plan on spending the strongest couple hours of the falling tide playing in the waves off to the south side of the cut - it's usually a fairly benign place to play, with beaches near to take breaks on.  Alternate - If it's glassy smooth out we'll plan on paddling the 8 miles around Virginia Key instead.

LAUNCH - There is a sandy area all the way to the south of the launch ramps at Crandon Park Marina for kayaks and canoes.  Parking is Master Meter style.

GEAR - BASICS plus SELF RESCUE GEAR, TOWING GEAR, SPARE PADDLE, HELMET suggested.  Please visit the GEAR page link for specifics!

    I like waves and I'll be launching either from MAST beach just north of the Seaquarium or from Virginia Key Park (the one with the jetties) around 8-8:30 AM

    I have circled VK more than once, definitely want to be at half tide or above or it gets a bit shallow on the flats facing Miami. BEar cut is fun and there's good spots to swim and picnic. Will make this trip if I can.
