Paddlers, it's time to dust off your kayaking and camping equipment and get back outside. Summertime in Florida is great, but when the temps and humidity starts to drop is when outdoorsy folks around the state are most happy. It's time to go play.
One of the first things that comes to mind when the weather starts to cool down is a paddling trip. For folks interested in getting out on the water this fall and winter, make sure to check out Paddle Florida's upcoming trip schedule.
Florida's waterways vary from region to region, so no two Paddle Florida trips are the same. On one trip, kayakers paddle underneath a canopy of ancient cypress trees. On another trip, attendees have the opportunity to take part in an open water adventure in the Florida Keys. You can really get the full Florida experience on Paddle Florida trips.
If you are ready to hit the water, Paddle Florida's first trip of the new season is just around the corner. On Oct. 12-17, join Paddle Florida for their fourth trip on the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail. It's a five-day, 73-mile journey, complete with gear shuttles, entertainment and meals.
Other Paddle Florida trips will happen on the St. Johns, Wekiva, Withlacoochee, and Ochlockonee Rivers. These trips range from 30 to 76 miles in length.
Looking for a winter adventure? Sign up for the Florida Keys Challenge, a 70-mile journey from Long Key to Key West. This truly is the paddling trip of a lifetime.
