Wednesday Night Paddle

RATING - Beginner SK2 (click on link to see rating info), Night Trip, approx 5-8 miles, Medium Speed

This trip tends to have flat water, currents up to about 2MPH under some bridges, and can sometimes have brisk winds, though we usually pick a sheltered route on windy nights.

LOCATION & DESCRIPTION - This trip launches from George English Park (the park at the corner of Sunrise and Bayview Drive, across from the Galleria) and has about a dozen possible routes depending on wind and current. This trip can be as long (or short) as we feel like making it! Snacks/dinner afterwards sometimes, location TBD.

PARKING - FREE at the Tennis Center - don't park in the metered area, there are occasionally break-ins over there.  Don't park in the spaces reserved for Tennis Center, though it's OK to pull in briefly to offload.

LAUNCH - The launch is from a flat rocky beach near the Tennis Center toward the north side of the park.

KAYAK RENTALS - Kayak rentals are not available for this trip.

GEAR - BASICS plus NIGHT TIME GEAR. Please visit the GEAR page link for specifics!

    I have a 10 ft sot wilderness and was wondering what type of kayaks the majority of your group has . Thinking of buying a longer sit in . So I can keep up with the group. What do you suggest

      i suggest going to a few of these trips and checking out other peoples boats, most folk are happy to let you try out their kayaks

      I second Greg's suggestion, and also suggest that you come to the Kayaking Q&A we have every month - plenty of folks with opinions, with experience ranging from "recent newbie" to "a lot".

    Absolutely great trip! Just short of ten miles, about three hours, and the ocean was beautiful!
