Paddling in The Florida Panhandle

The Florida Panhandle has some of the best Paddling in Florida, and some of the most remote and natural with several large rivers flowing from Georgia and Alabama to the Gulf. State and national parks, and seven state aquatic preserves, offer myriad paddling destinations. A recreation permit is required for paddling at Eglin Air Force Base. The Gulf coast offers many ocean kayaking opportunities, too. The Florida Panhandle can be cold in the winter; watch the weather during hurricane season.
