  • A moderate paddle on the river.

Registration is closed

Trip leader: Phil Sheesley 813-695-7395

Description: We’ll meet at the boat ramp at Miss Maggie’s Campground at 9:00 to be on the water by 9:30 for a paddle on this COOL clear river. We’ll visit several of the source springs and plan to get wet at “The Crack” before stopping on the river bank to enjoy whatever lunch/snack you decide to bring with you. This will be an easy, relatively short paddle at a leisurely pace. The idea is to enjoy the river, stay cool, and see the wildlife in this unspoiled Florida river.

Location: Miss Maggie Campground, parking fee is $5. The Campground is at the end of FL Rte480, well south of Homossassa. (Regardless of what the guys on the dock tell you, it is NOT the cashier’s birthday.)

Schedule: Meet at 9:00, paddle by 9:30 and plan to be back to the launch by 1:30.

Difficulty: This paddle is open to all TBSK members and guests at Level 1 or above. Distance will be less than 5 miles (See Skills Self Assessment Chart link below for level assignment)

Required: Sit on Top or Sea Kayak, must wear PFD. Bring plenty of Water/Sports Drink and lunch/snack. Sunscreen and consider insect repellant.
