Details

Wayne is leading a paddle for the Manatee County Park and Natural Resources Department. 5 spots have been reserved just for SAG members! Sorry, you can't bring guests this time!

What a great way to spend a Friday evening on a full moon paddle. Come out and enjoy the salt marshes of Robinson Preserve. This is an easy paddle which can be enjoyed by beginning kayakers.

This is an easy to moderate paddle depending on weather and wind. This 487-acre preserve has undergone an incredible transformation from disturbed farmland to coastal and wetland habitats. Robinson Preserve's Blueways Trails wind their way through the salt marshes and mangroves. A beautiful place to paddle with access to other Manatee County Blueways Trails including the Manatee River, Perico Bayou, and Palma Sola Bay.
