If you'd like to try kayaking........come on out! No prior experience necessary!
Wayne will give a brief, informal class after which we will paddle the protected waters of Robinson Preserve. A slow paced paddle intended to give you time to get used to your kayak while exploring Robinson Preserve. Plenty of time to try out kayaking and get some informal coaching, too. For those interested in learning how to load a kayak on your car, a demo will follow.
What to bring:
water and a snack
bug repellent, hat
kayak, life vest, whistle, etc
bathing suit, water shoes or sneakers which can get wet (not flip flops)
Wearing of a PFD/lifejacket is required..... If you rent, they will provide you with PFD/ life jacket and whistle.
If you need a kayak, please call Kayak Jacks at (941) 538-1448. I f you are over 220 pounds or over 6'2", let them know so they will give you an appropriate kayak. They will deliver and pickup up kayaks to you at Robinson Preserve. Their discounted fees to our group is $30.00 for a single with no delivery charge. If you are renting and don't come to the event you need to call Siesta Jack's Kayaks by 5:00 PM the day before and cancel to avoid being charged for the rental.
