This group is for the fitness minded or the casual to avid outdoorsy person. Those who are new to Tampa Bay will find this is the right meetup to discover Florida and meet new friends. We are also the oldest meetup in Tampa Bay.
In addition we believe the journey is the destination and we facilitate the experience. Our guides have much experience leading groups and know how to manage a trip and still not ruin the natural flow and fun that happens. We don't leave anyone behind.
We're eco friendly, stress safety first, and occasionally we will have kayak cleanups of bayous or inter-coastal waterways. We provide the kayaks for these cleanups at no cost. It is part of our job to help keep the water we paddle clean and safe.
We strongly believe in
"LEAVE NO TRACE" "Take only pictures, leave only footprints and memories.
