Little Manatee River / Upper Section

  • Apr 27, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

 We will meet at 9:00 am and load our kayaks on a bus that will take us up river for an eleven (11) mile paddle. The trip will take about 5 hours. There will be a $12.00 fee for the transportation paid to the Canoe Outpost. 

The Little Manatee River is a classic tannin-stained Central Florida river. It is a Florida Designated Outstanding Waterway. In a day's paddle, it transitions from a 10-20 foot wide creek meandering through ash and oak dominated floodplain to a 300-foot wide tide influenced river fanning through tidal marsh that empties into Cockroach Bay/ Tampa Bay. The sandy bottom and gently sloping banks create a number of spots to stop and stretch or eat.

Please bring a PDF, whistle, water and lunch/snack.
