Presentation: Six Day Kayaking Adventure in The Everglades

The Everglades is one of the wildest and most remote places left on the planet!  Now imagine paddling a kayak for 6 days there.

Join us to hear about Tom Helbig’s Everglade’s National Park six day kayaking adventure filled with dolphins, crocodiles, challenges, beautiful sunsets, rain, wind, tidal changes and more. He started in Flamingo, FL paddled up the coast on the Gulf of Mexico then paddled through Little Shark River through interior of park camping on chickees back to Flamingo, FL. One 70 mile memorable loop!!

Tom Helbig is the owner of Tomfoolery Outdoors and recently completed a 156 mile Great Miami River paddle from Indian Lake to the Ohio River to promote the Great Miami River Corridor.

We will also be hosting a craft beer share / tasting after the presentation. Bring your favorite craft beer to share with others.

10% of the evening’s sales being donated The Adaptive Adventure Sports Coalition’s (TAASC) Paddling Program.

    Very nice presentation and a good group of paddlers were in attendance. The beer tasting selection was an added bonus!

    Be sure to bring some interesting beers, and maybe a beerfest style tasting glass.

    We might not make it either. Is it ok to be a little late?

      I am assuming nobody will throw you out :0) In the past, these type of things do start on time and usually last an hour or more.

    This looks so interesting, but I'm leaving for Mich. In the am and haven't started packing the car yet....thought I'd get an earlier start today.
