Bennetts Creek And Port Inglis Island Paddle *

On this trip we’ll be paddling on open coastal waters among saw grass marshes and scattered small islands of Bennett’s Creek and near the town of Inglis, where the Withlacoochee River enters the Gulf of Mexico. Some of these are higher shell midden isles with very interesting plant life. We’ll be stopping at a couple of small, higher islands where we’ll stretch, snack and check out some of the island flora. NAT0020.1F7 1 Wed., starts 4/21, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Instructor: Lars Andersen YANKEETOWN FEE $59

Island Hopping The Cedar Keys *

Nature still rules in the Cedar Keys area of Florida’s Big Bend. It’s a low, wet country where land merges gradually with the sea, shrinking and expanding with the ebb and flow of tides. Shore birds, dolphins, horseshoe crabs and a menagerie of plant and animal species make this a fascinating area to explore by kayak. Three hours of paddling may be tiring to some. Basic instructions given for beginners. SPO0024.1W3 1 Thu., starts 4/8, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Instructor: Lars Andersen CEDAR KEY FEE $59

NAT0010.1B6 1 Tue., starts 4/13, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Instructor: Lars Andersen SILVER SPRINGS STATE PARK FEE $59 NOTE: Please bring $8 to class to pay for park entry/ State Pass.

Suncoast: The World Of Mangroves *

Saltwater environments require interesting adaptions of the many species that live in them. Nowhere in NorthCentral Florida are these adaptations more beautifully revealed than in mangrove forests of the Suncoast Keys on the Gulf Coast. The same conditions that make this area ideal for mangroves--shallow, calm water with numerous islands--also make it ideal for kayak exploration. Difficulty: Easy paddle on calm, open water. Three hours of paddling may be tiring to some. NAT0031.1B6 1 Thu., starts 5/13, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Instructor: Lars Andersen OZELLO BOAT RAMP FEE $59

Outdoor Adventure COVID-19 Procedure Adjustments · All boats, paddles, vests and gear are wiped down or sprayed with disinfectant between each tour. · To allow natural distancing between kayaks and canoes, we are limiting group size to 14 people so we don’t cluster closely during on-water discussions or moments of nature interpretation. · We are not doing any tours that require shuttle in the confined space of a shuttle van. So, all tours are round trips that begin and end at the same launch site. · To minimize clustering at the ramp, we will forego our usual pre-paddle “map talk” until we are on the water. We will then gather loosely on the water, where I will give the overview of the river’s history, geology, archaeology, etc. (More of this information, as well as nature lore about plants, birds & other animals, is discussed throughout the tour.) · Experienced paddlers: Rather than launching all at once, we’ll have you launch individually, whenever you are geared-up and ready at the ramp. Expect to spend maybe 10 - 15 minutes piddle-paddling around in the general area of the launch site, until everyone has launched. Once everyone is on the water, we will re-group and head down the river. Anyone who would rather not spend these extra minutes on the water is welcome to stay on land and be among the last to launch. · Beginning paddlers: When you arrive at the launch site, please inform the instructor that you need basic lessons. We will have you stand off to the side until all beginners have arrived. I will then give basic lessons, while the experienced paddlers are launching at the ramp. We will then launch you individually and you will join the others already on the water. Thank you for your cooperation. Strange times call for creative planning.
