Kayak (canoe or boat) trips, often camping trips, to Mosquito Lagoon. Camping is done on the island campsites of Cape Canaveral National Seashore Park. Unless specifically mentioned as 'beginners welcomed', most trips are for adults only with experience at paddling, camping, and sometimes roughing it although glamping (glamor/comfortable camping) is often an option.
Good camping etiquette is expected at all our events. Unless specifically mentioned otherwise, everyone is expected to have their own boat, camping gear and be independent.
Day trips are sometimes advanced, meaning a possible strenuous event, so be in shape, healthy, and show up with the appropriate water craft with REQUIRED accessories life a PFD, water, whistle.
* We are branching out to do kayak trips (day and camping) to area sites, like (but not limited to) the Econlockhatchee River, Spring Creek (Alexander Springs), Blackwater Creek (off the Wekiva River), Upper St John's River (south of Rt 46) and north Lake Apopka canals
Heading down Spring Creek to the St. John's River, then on to Astor where our shuttle will be. This is our 2nd trip doing this.
Plan on primitive camping on a bluff overlooking the creek.
Day one meet at Alexander Springs park. Main parking lot. Paddling distance approximately 11 miles. On day two we finish the trip with a couple miles left on Spring Creek, then a 7 mile trip down the St John's River to Astor's Butler Boat ramp. We will park our shuttle (van with trailer) there. What to bring: Everything you need to survive for 2 days, one night, on Spring Creek.
Important to know: Experienced at kayaking and primitive camping a must. There is always a tree falling or floating to make an obstacle, but we always get by. Sometimes we spend a little extra time removing any obstacles with our saw.
