Florida Canoeing and Kayaking
Paddle power! That is the way more and more people are discovering Florida. And, when you
take time to slow down, relax and explore part of the Sunshine State from the seat of a canoe or
kayak, you will find there are miles of slow moving, wildlife laced rivers to discover and vast
stretches of marsh and mangrove lined coastline where kayakers and canoeists can see dolphins
and manatees while fishing for redfish and snook as ospreys and pelicans fly overhead.
Florida is blessed with over 1700 rivers, 40 of them major ones, hundreds of miles of low energy shoreline in the Big Bend region along the west coast and thousands of places among the mangrove forested southwest coast and Florida Keys to poke and probe. A place to paddle, whether it's for a few hours or a few days, is never far away. Many of these sites include some of the last wilderness areas east of the Mississippi. They are magical places where you can get close to wildlife and experience true isolation. This site is your doorway to all that you will need to know about how, when, and where to paddle Florida.
