Biscayne Bay Sunset Paddle with The Paddle House

We'll paddle out on the bay past Eco-Island where we can watch the sun set behind the city.  Bring your camera (waterproof are best) the photos can be amazing.  This is an ideal paddle for beginners and first timers as well as experienced paddlers.  Conditions will determine the direction of the paddle.

  • Enjoy a beautiful sunset paddle on Biscayne Bay.

    Make sure you bring your lights! The more lights, the better as it will be dark when we return, but you must have at least ONE! The lights also allow other boaters to see us on the water and thus not run us over, thereby ruining our evening!

    Bring something to drink and and eat.  A change of dry clothes are a good idea too.

  • Reservations are Required - RSVP please to The Paddle House

  • Rentals: Special Club Rentals are available for those in need at the special rate of $30/single and $40/tandem kayaks. You must reserve your boat in advance.  Please call The Paddle House at (786)[masked] or stop on by to reserve your boat and pick-up some lights.  We're at 2753 SW 27th Ave. on the corner of SW 27th Ave and 28th Lane, between Shell Lumber and US1.

    Launch Fee: There is a $5 launch fee if you bring your own kayak. Well worth it since parking in the Coconut Grove if included.  Please bring cash.

    Parking: Pull a ticket at the Shake-A-Leg Miami lot. Be sure to get your parking validated or you will pay upward of $12 cash at the exit. Parking is free with Shake A Leg validation.  If the lot is full, overflow parking is usually available at Shake-A-Leg Miami.

    What to bring: Camera, drinks, snack, your boat, your paddle, your PFD (which you will wear). Don't forget your bug spray, just in case. Wear appropriate clothing (avoid cotton and open toe shoes/flip flops).

    The fine print:

    By participating in any of our paddles you assume all risks and responsibilities for your personal health and safety and for your equipment; as well as the safety and equipment of your guests. It is important for everyone that each participant be prepared for the trip. Please use your discretion and best judgment when joining an outing. Be sure you are up to the paddle -- physically, mentally and that your equipment is appropriate for the intended trip. All night paddles require lights; even for rentals or borrowed boats. PFD and whistles are required. Intermediate to Advanced Paddles are for those who have substantial experience, skill, and solid knowledge of boat handling and self-rescues. Kayaking has inherent risks. Often, we are the smallest boats on the water. We each individually assume these risks each time we go out on the water. With all that being said, we all look forward to yet another great day on the water.

    Another perfect evening paddle. The weather was just right. Thanks to everyone who turned up and made it such a lovely evening for everyone else. It was a delight to meet those that I was meeting for the first time and also to spend time with "old" friends. Hope to see you all again soon.

      We meet at 7PM launch at about 7:30 pm Rain is better than the text I received this am from one of the Castaway team members. They got hit by a squall at the 7-mile bridge. 3-4 foot seas. 5 in group capsized but recovered without harm. And that's why rescue practice is a good thing. Scott is in one of my boats. He was worried he would encounter bad weather and flip. The Wind 585 is narrow with great secondary stability. Now he believes me. She handled the rough seas great and he did not capsize. Said she got him out of the storm fast. Whew! Very exciting stuff.

    I live in the high rise across the street from "Shake a Leg" so I can give you the heads up on water conditions. I didn't think anyone would show last night, I watched the parking lot and not a creature was stirring, not even a pelican.
