Rescheduled Meet Cynthia McGregor and Al Tillson at Al Palonis Park near the Tampa end of Gandy Bridge at 8:45AM to launch at 9:30AM on Saturday Sept 2nd for an easy paddle north to the last significant undeveloped South Tampa shoreline north of Gandy. The launch spot is about 100 yards from the parking lot, so bring kayak wheels or borrow one of ours. We’ll stop for a dip in Georgetown lagoon. It’s completely surrounded by mangroves except for a small sand beach at the mouth, reportedly 20 feet deep in some places and way cooler than the surrounding bay water. We’ll explore some of the surrounding shoreline, stop for lunch/snack along the way, and return to the take-out by around 12:30 for a total of 1 ½ to 2 miles.

For beginners and up. All boats are welcome but must be in seaworthy condition with proper flotation, and PFDs must be worn at all times. Location may be changed if required by weather conditions. Directions to the put-in will be provided to all who RSVP through the website or with Al Tillson ( or 813-832-3961) or Cynthia McGregor ( or 305 619 8276).
