Paddle to Dinner (The Bait House)

Hey Wet Dogs were starting up our monthly "Paddlling to Dinner" trips again.  Each month we'll pick a new restaurant location on the water and paddle there for dinner and a great sunset.  MJ took me to this small, but very cool place for my birthday so this going to be added to the many places we've paddle to dinner.

What: The new waterfront restaurant "The Bait House" located on Clearwater Beach is our location this month.  The Bait House is just that... a bait shop that added a very cool Key West style restaurant and bar.  You walk right through the bait shop to the restaurant.

Itinerary: We'll put-in at the Clearwater Beach Rec Center just behind the tennis courts (Note: The google address say's Clearwater Beach Boat Ramp because the Recreation Center wouldn't come up on Google Maps) and paddle north around Island Way then south through the Clearwater Beach Bridge, then a mile up to the docks at the marina.  There are some small boat docks to tie off the kayak to, then we'll walk up to the restaurant.  After dinner with finesse we'll get back in the kayaks and then it's a short paddle back.  Beginners and up paddle.  Approx. 5 miles in inter-coastal waters.

Some past locations we paddled to dinner are: The Warf, The Pub, Moon Under the Water, Fish Tales, Frenchy's, Tarpon Turtle, Captain Jacks.

 

Cost: $26.75 if renting a kayak.  FREE if bringing your own kayak

 

Bring: sunscreen, water, appropriate paddling clothing,

    I just changed the meetup location to the Clearwater Beach Boat Ramp. It's really the same area, just that the Rec Center wouldn't come up on Google Maps. We'll be meeting behind the tennis courts in the parking lot.

    • Carolina M.

  • Wes C

    Mike, what do you do with your kayaking gear while away from the boats?

    April 18, 2013

    • Carolina M.

      Wes you can actually see your kayaks from where we'll be dinning. Very small place. I counted about possible 35 people total in the whole place. It's all outdoors. Very Keywest like.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
