Florida Keys Challenge Week-Long Paddling/Camping Adventure

From January 15-22, paddlers will enjoy a 79-mile island-hopping adventure from Long Key State Park to Key West. Paddle alongside sea turtles and railroad visionary Henry Flagler’s “Eighth Wonder of the World” in the sparking turquoise waters of the Florida Keys.

Paddle Florida arranges all camping sites to highlight nature's best shoreline views. Three meals are provided daily. Your camping gear is transported for you, so there's no need to weigh down canoes/kayaks with tents and other gear. Vehicle and boat shuttles are available. Evening entertainment is provided, featuring regional musicians and educational presentations on local water issues, flora, and fauna.

If you can't get away for the whole trip, you can choose the Paddle Florida Lite option for a shorter segment of 4 days or less.

Need to rent a boat and paddling gear? Contact Joe Crespi at First Coast Outfitters at[masked] or Florida Bay Outfitters at[masked]-3018.   Florida Bay Outfitters will be able to deliver your boat to the trip's launching point and pick it up at the end.  Participants are responsible for supplying their own camping gear for the trip.

Trip registration deadline: JANUARY 2, 2015.
