Join the Tampa Bay Sea Kayakers for our first overnight camping trip this paddling season! We will have three paddles - Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 trips all leaving on October 22nd to rendezvous at Shell Key and return on October 23rd. We will camp on the beautiful gulf-side beach and spend time relaxing around the campfire. This is a great opportunity to practice your kayak-camping skills with experienced paddlers. You will be required to bring your own camping gear and food. A camping gear list can be found on the TBSK web site under Trip Planning, Camping Via Kayak – the link is: http://tbsk.club/resources/Documents/Camping%20Gear%20List.pdf
