Fun and Easy Kayaking Trips
Manatee Kayaking in Crystal River
Sunset Kayaking in Cedar Key
Kayaking the Santa Fe River
Want to get outdoors and try something new, but not sure you're
adventurous enough? Kayaking is a great place to start. Kayaking is easy and
fun, and almost anyone can get the hang of it right away. You don't have to
be really fit, just able to do some moderate activity.
You don't even need your own kayak. You can rent a kayak on location for
most of our events. Trips usually range in price from $25 to $40 for the
day, and a paddle down a river typically takes a few hours to half a day.
Some of our members also rent kayaks at reasonable rates. You need to
pick the kayak up and transport it yourself in most cases, but sometimes
members can even help with that, too.
Kayaks are a little like canoes, except kayaks are generally much lighter
and easier to steer. Kayaks are usually built for one person. You use one
long double-ended paddle to propel yourself through the water. In my
opinion, the easiest kayaks to use are the "sit-on-top" kayaks, where you
are above the water line. This gives you more leverage when dipping your
paddle into the water.
Where do we go on kayak trips? We go all over the Central Florida
area. Usually, we stay close by, within a 1 or 2-hour drive of the kayaking
location. We've been to Cedar Key, the Santa Fe River, the Waccassassa
River, Rainbow Springs, Crystal River, the Silver River, the Suwannee, and
Juniper Springs, just to name a selection of places we frequent.
