For kayakers by kayakers... With a temperate climate, over 1000 miles of coastline, and over 1700 miles of rivers, creeks, and spring runs, Florida is a paddlers paradise. As avid Florida recreational kayakers (sit-on-tops, padded seats!), we enjoy comfortable half-day trips ideal for most residents and Florida visitors. We seek out natural surroundings, wildlife, solitude, and sheltered waters. We avoid motorboat traffic. We are not adventure seekers. We watch the weather. We like the "My Radar" weather app.

Browse in full privacy with no pop-ups. Please come back often as we update regularly.
