Description: We’ll paddle down the Hillsborough River to downtown Tampa and return.

Location: Lowry Park Boat Ramp (the Park is off Sligh Avenue in North Tampa)

Schedule: Wednesday, January 22.  We’ll meet at the boat ramp at Tampa’s Lowry Park at 9:00 for a 9:30 launch and plan to return by 2:00.  We’ll plan to eat lunch at the new rowing center across from the Tampa Museum of Art.  Will require that paddlers are able to exit and re-enter their kayaks from the low rowing docks.

Difficulty: Level 2+ – We’ll paddle at a moderate pace on protected water, but this paddle will be about 12 miles long, so will require that paddlers are capable of paddling back upstream for 6 miles – a strong L2.

Required: Non-Inflatable PFD, Water/Drink, Sunscreen
