Description: A leisurely paddle through the mangroves on Weedon Island’s south paddling trail. The trail can be narrow and, depending upon the water height, may require ducking at various times. Weather permitting we will leave the trail at the southern end and proceed out to the main channel, then rejoin the trail coming up the west side of the island. Most any boat will do, although take one that can keep up with the group.

Predicted Tides:
