Kayak to Kingsley Plantation
Sep 18, 2012
We will meet at Alimacani Boat Ramp on Ft. George Island to paddle with the tide to Kingsley Plantation, part of the Timucuan Preserve. This stretch of the waterway is home to lots of wading birds and marine life. We’ll take some time to explore this historic site, discovering some of NE Florida’s rich early history.
We’ll then return with the tide, taking time to swim at one of the lovely beaches on our route back. Please have all your gear unloaded by 10AM; we’ll be on the water at 10:15!
Total distance: about 3 ½ miles. Total time: 3-4 hours. No fees. No kids or pets.
Bring: Kayak, Paddle, PFD, Whistle, Water, Lunch, Sunscreen, Insect Spray. PFD: MUST BE WORN, FASTENED, AT ALL TIMES DURING PADDLE.
LIMIT: 10. YOU MUST RSVP on MeetUp to attend this outing!
