Suncoast Keys: World of the Mangroves

Lars Anderson

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, which makes 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. We won't go if the forecast is too windy (or inclement in any way). Skill level: Good for beginners & pros alike.
