If you need a boat you must call The Paddle House[masked] and pre-book your boat. We cannot guarantee availability if you do not reserve in advance.
All participants must bring a bright white signal light. It will be dark early and it required by the Coast Guard. Sorry folks, no lights, no paddle.
An afternoon on the bay followed by a leisure walk or drive to a nearby restaurant. Living in Miami sure has its perks! This is an ideal paddle for beginners and first timers as well as experienced paddlers. Conditions will determine the direction of the paddle.
Make sure you bring your lights! The more lights, the better as it may 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 not run us over, thereby ruining the afternoon.
Bring something to drink and and eat. A change of dry clothes are a good idea too.
Reservations are Require - RSVP please
Rentals: Rentals are available for those in need at the special rate of $25/single and $35/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 available compliments of 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.
