SUP Adventure at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park
After a long, summer hiatus, it's time for our first adventure paddle of this winter season. For that, we've selected John Pennekamp State Park in Key Largo. Although about a two-hour drive from most parts of the Fort Lauderdale / Miami Beach area, John Pennekamp is a beautiful paddle. Wildlife and marine life abound. If you've never been here, expect a beautiful Florida experience, if you've already been here, well then join us for an amazing day! We will meet at the kayak launch in the park with launch time to be 9:30 AM. Rentals are available - SUP, Kayak, Canoe - close by if you want to rent. For this event, if you need to rent, please contact the park at (305)[masked] for any questions. There is a fee to enter the park of $8.00 per vehicle with a $.50 per person Monroe County Surcharge but no launch fee for those bringing their own boards other than the park entry fee. NOTE: After entering the park, proceed past the rental pavilion over the wooden bridge. The launch will be on your left. There is parking close by the kayak launch location as well. NOTE2: If you are renting, arrive about 9:00. The Rental pavilion is marked with a Green X...the red arrows point to where we will meet to paddle. You will find me at the kayak beach launch :)

What we're about

Are you interested in South Florida paddling road trips? Are you a local Floridian with a board, time and the desire to explore? If so, and if you're interested in exploring the water less traveled in South Florida by stand-up paddle board, then South Florida SUP is for you. This Meetup travels to some of the most exotic and hidden locations for paddling in South Florida. Join your neighbors who love paddling, but maybe just don't know where to go or are apprehensive about trying unknown paddling locations. Join like-minded paddlers for day trips to the Keys, The Everglades, Florida's Springs and amazing national and state parks. If you love wildlife and experiencing the beauty of our state by paddleboard, we're the group for you.

We will coordinate monthly, if not more with some local paddles thrown in, paddling hidden areas of South Florida exploring its most beautiful and interesting waterways. Join South Florida SUP (all paddlers welcome - bring your Kayak's, Canoes, etc.) and experience the adventure, beauty, and wildlife of beautiful South Florida firsthand.
