Whistle Stop Sunset Paddle to Dinner

Where:

Mullet Creek in Safety Harbor 

Itinerary:

After talking to Todd Perry (fellow Wet Dog) who pointed this unique put-in spot out to us recently, we've decided this could be great way to do our "Monthly Paddle to Dinner Trip" with a group as we'll as introduce the new mangrove trails at Coopers Bayou.  We'll put-in on the right side (west) side of Mullet Creek and paddle 1/4 mile down the creek and out to the bay.  We'll turn south paddling past the Roseate Spoon Bill rookery then cruise past the Safety Harbor Marina and Pier and on up to Coopers Bayou.  Coopers is fast becoming a popular place to paddle due to the new mangrove trails being cut by the city of Clearwater as part of Pinellas Counties "Blue Ways Trails"  We'll do a loop through the bayou and paddle back north past the marina to the opening of Mullet Creek and our cars.  

Once all the boats are secured we'll drive a short distance to the Famous "Whistle Stop Bar and Grill" for a delicious dinner and drinks. (one of Wet Dogs Sponsors)   The Whistle Stop is designed perfectly for a soggy group of Wet Dogs and food is southern cooking at the best.   Paddle difficulty: Approx 3 mile round trip for beginners and up.

Special note:  Wet Dog Adventures is fast approaching 2,000 members and one of the most active groups in Tampa Bay.  So... I thought why not invite a friend or co-worker to come on a paddle (especially our Christmas Paddle and Party in December) or join Wet Dog and lets see if we can get to that magical number by Jan 1st 2014.  

IF you enjoy the trips and social benefits of our group 

like us on Face Book at:  Wet Dog 

Cost:

FREE if bringing your own kayak  $25 if renting a kayak from us. (includes all gear)  Note: If you're a 2013 Wet Dog Paid Supporter you get 50% off your kayak rental.

 

Bring:

lights for paddle back, water, money for "Whistle Stop", sandals or water shoes.  AVOID FLIP FLOPS PLEASE! due to oyster beds, appropriate paddle clothes, camera, etc.

    I think that the part of the paddle I enjoyed the most was going back up the stream in the dark. A real adventure.

    Had a good time. Paddle was good, food was good and the company was good. I even found my way home, but it was this morning when I got there. The moon on the water at the skyway was shimmering nicely. Hope to paddle with y'all again soon. I just have to find a way to get midnight traffic at 5 o'clock. (dreamer)

    What kind of light do we bring?

    October 1, 2013

    • Carolina M.

      Susan, any light is fine. A regular flash light in a baggy or a chem stick, or a kayak cone light at Bill Jackson's if great.

    I'd love to come but Thursdays aren't good for me. It would be great if we could change the Paddle to Dinner day to Fridays. This restaurant sounds interesting. Perhaps another opportunity will come up in the future.
