Hunter Springs Park
the manatees will be heading out to the gulf in the following weeks. One last trip for the season. I will check on the camp sites at Rainbow State Park. I'd like to meet at Hunter's Park at 9 am this time, but the time may change, depending on the tides.
After the paddle, we will converge on our favorite place for lunch - Crackers!
what to bring:
Kayak, paddle, pdf
Wet Suit – can be rented from Diver Supply on St. Johns Bluff Road.
You might want booties and gloves also.
Mask, snorkel and fins
Water and snacks
There are rules that are governing being around the manatees which I will go over before heading out, but please review the video in this link, as it addresses the "do and do not" state rules regarding the manatees. http://www.fws.gov/crystalriver/
This paddle is wonderful, and the manatees are friendly! We always have fun and leave with memories that last.
