Meet & Greet

Pineda Inn Bar & Grill

A chance to get off the water and have a beer (or other beverage) with your fellow paddlers and just have a good time. We'll talk about paddles we've done, and paddles we're going to do. More importantly, just have a chance to get to know one another a little better.

Weekend Starter Paddle

Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge Kiosk

Still scouting out launch points for this paddle, but will have better information shortly. Pelican Island’s designation as a wildlife Refuge came about through the valiant efforts of many individuals, from a pioneer boat builder living on an ancient shell mound overlooking the island in the late 1800s, to a conservation minded President, to conservationists, sportsmen, and environmentally conscious citizens. The Refuge is also designated as a National Historic Landmark, a Wetland of International Importance, and a candidate Marine Protected Area. Because of its status as the first federal area set aside specifically to protect wildlife, the Refuge was designated a National Historic Landmark by the Secretary of the Interior in 1963. Thirty years later in 1993, Pelican Island Refuge was recognized by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands as a Wetland of International Importance for its support of endangered species and large assemblages of migratory birds, as well as for its support of 10 Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge species at critical stages in their biological development. In 2000, the Refuge was listed as a candidate Marine Protected Area for its protection of estuarine waters. Rental kayaks available at https://gokayakingtours.com/rentals/.

Fourth Sunday Paddle

Juniper Springs Recreation Area

Another Sunday expedition to a place that if not on your bucket list, should be. This beautiful seven-mile run is actually many springs both in the main spring bowl and along the spring run. This is a popular destination and can be very busy, especially on weekends. Be aware of the rules as they DO check your coolers and bags - no plastic bags or disposable containers are allowed, even candy bars need to be taken out of their wrappers. Once people start signing up, we'll arrange for our own shuttles. This paddle is generally considered to be of the moderate category, so it may not be the best bet if you don't have some experience under your belt.
