Suncoast Keys: World of the Mangroves   

Salt water environments require unique and interesting adaptions of the plants and animal species that live in them. Nowhere in North-Central Florida are these adaptations more beautifully revealed than in mangrove forests of the Suncoast Keys on Central Florida's Gulf Coast.

Better yet, the same conditions that make this area ideal for mangroves--shallow, calm water protected from winds and waves by numerous islands- also make it an ideal environment for kayak exploration.

Please meet at the launch site at 10 AM. The trip duration is 2.5 - 3 hours. Difficulty: Open water is easy if calm weather. Moderate if it's breezy. We won't go if the forecast is too windy (or inclement in any way). Skill level: Good for beginners & pros alike.

After registering for the class, all participants should call (386) 497-4214 during the week prior to the trip to discuss equipment needs and confirm an email address for launch site directions.

Lunch is not included in price.
