Good news, friends – this Saturday, Oct. 6 is the first ever Florida Paddling Day! Load up those kayaks and canoes and hit a waterway near you to celebrate.
A few weeks back, I was in Titusville at the Florida Professional Paddlesports Association meeting, and this terrific idea to make an official day to get out and enjoy paddling was created. Look for this event to get bigger and better every year, with more things happening locally around the state.
Activities for Florida Paddling Day will depend on which FPPA outfitter you visit. The Peace River Canoe Outpost, Blue Moon Outdoor Center, Everglades Area Tours, and lots of others are offering big discounts on rentals.
