Folks, do yourselves a favor this year and sign up for a Paddle Florida trip. These trips are just incredible. Not only to you get the chance to hang out with other paddlers, but you get to see some incredible places around the state. It's a true Florida adventure.
Paddle Florida's fourth trip on the Suwannee River happens in just a couple of weeks, but there's still a few days left to sign up. Don't miss out on the opportunity to paddle 73 miles of the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail, complete with awesome food, entertainment and shuttling of all camping gear to the next overnight spot.
The trip begins just north of Live Oak at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, where paddlers will launch and head 73 miles downstream to Ivey Memorial Park in Branford. Over the course of five days, attendees will explore some of the most scenic places in the state, with several only being accessible by kayak.
Depending on the day's route, plan on being able to paddle up to 18 miles during the day. Take advantage of rest and lunch stops along the way. At night, you'll be treated to entertainment and a catered meal, which is one of the most amazing things ever after a day on the water.
Don't have a kayak, but still want to take part in the trip? No problem. Hook up with the folks from the Suwannee Canoe Outpost for a rental.
