This is the reschedule of the cancelled Shell Island Kayak Camp last Saturday. If you were signed up for that one or not please reschedule your rsvp for this one.

Saturday- Sunday Dec 12th and 13th - Come join us for for a well needed Campout on Shell Island. We've entertained over 250 people last nine years on this special sandy beach. Beginners and up trip- kayaks and tents available for rent if needed.

Itinerary:

We'll paddle out to Shell Island (45 min paddle for beginners) across open mangrove flats. Azure blue waters and white sandy beaches. Ft. Desoto has been voted the best beach in the US in 2008. Well, if you've ever been to this nearby Island paradise, you'd beg to differ. Shell Island is the king of beaches.

We'll set up camp and then gather to learn everyone's name and then just relax. If you haven't kayak camped out on Shell Island before you're in for a special treat. The sands are perfect and the weather is ideal for camping. We'll cook our famous Australian Dinkim Chilli and as night falls away we'll sit and mingle by the roaring fire. Some may steal away for a walk up the beach. If the conditions are right phosphorescence activity in the waves may illuminate the shores at night. Later on you'll notice one by one people leaving the fire to retire to their tents to fall asleep to the soft waves lapping on the shore. SURLY ONE TRIP NOT TO MISS!

Sunday you'll awake to the smell of breakfast and coffee (your own). We'll enjoy the morning, cleanup and then pack up for a short paddle home.
