Presentations

 Make Natural North Florida Your Next Paddling Destination

Sylvania - main floor Sat 3:30pm-4:15pm 

Algonquin - main floor Sun 1:30pm-2:15pm 

Natural North Florida is a year-round paddler's paradise. Springs and spring-fed rivers, including the 200-plus mile long Suwannee River, offer paddlers a wide range of opportunities, including day or extended trips. Join Tommy and Russ for a visual tour of the region as they highlight the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail and the Big Bend Saltwater Paddling Trail. Learn about coastal communities and amenities for paddlers and visitors throughout the region. Finally, as it's a growing part of the sport, they will discuss kayak fishing opportunities in both fresh and saltwater.
