What we're about

Northeast Florida Kayak Intros welcomes you to the an expanding water sport! Northeast Florida Kayak Intros is a Meetup group for any and all kayak enthusiasts who enjoy the outdoors and socializing with like-minded friends! If you're interested in the sport of kayaking, this is the group for you! Whether you're a beginner or an experienced paddler, Northeast Florida Kayak Intros is the place to MeetUp!

Our meet up group is open to all skill levels, but we do ask that all participants be able to swim. In addition to our Meetups, we offer beginner's lessons, eco-adventure/historical tours, as well as opportunities for viewing wildlife (manatees, dolphin, birds) and beautiful sunsets. The sport of kayaking is diverse, and whether you enjoy kayak racing, fitness training, fishing, yoga, or touring this is the place to meet up for all kayak activities.

Kayaking is first and foremost our passion; making the sport accessible and affordable for North East Florida residents and visitors is our goal. The number of paddlers is growing in Northeast Florida, and our goal is to bring people together to create community and friendships. We are driven by community and as paddlers we value the health of Florida's parks and waterways. Kayaing is a great way to explore native Florida, and we believe everyone should experience the unique and beautiful features of our state.

Our organizers and instructors know and understand the sport of Kayaking. Our instructors are certified Kayak Instructors by the ACA (American Canoe Association).

Our passion is the water! Our primary concern is your safety and our mission is to share the joy and serenity of the water through KAYAKING! We love to kayak and believe you will too!

See you on the water!

~Peace
