Impromptu- Pop Stansell to the Spoils - Level 1+

  • 28 Oct 2020
  • 9:30 AM
  • Pop Stansell Park
  • 9


  • A moderate paddle on mostly protected waters.


Leader: Dave Schmidt  (

Meet @ 9:30 for a 10 am launch. Tide: high 11:01 (2'5")

Launching from Pop Stansell Park in Palm Harbor (797 Florida Ave) we'll paddle out of the bayou into St. Joseph's Sound.  Head for the boiling spring then out to spoil island 1-3 (just north of the bird sanctuary isle). Then paddle south to check out the bird sanctuary before heading to spoil 1-5 (aka Horseshoe Island). We'll stop there for a snack/stretch and perhaps some swimming before returning to Pop Stansell. 

Plan is for a trip of about 5 miles.  Level 1+ (the + is due to open water crossings where there may be chop/small waves).  If adverse conditions we'll stay close to shore and head north to Wall Springs Park instead.

Please register (or cancel) on the website. 

Covid Guidelines here.  Limiting to 9 participants.
