Women Kayak

I’m Connie and I have been kayaking on and off since landing in Florida about 12 years ago. I believe in learning by doing and I’m learning/exploring/kayaking at least a couple of trips a month.

For me kayaking or just plain being in the water can be a very relaxing way to enjoy the day and time with friends.

I have explored ways that can make kayaking more accessible for women, which for me includes using inflatable kayaks. I have (2) that I use on a regular basis and if you thought inflatables were toys – think again! – I did and now I have a whole new world to explore and do it my way.

I use SeaEagle products and a friend of mine uses Advance Elements – there are lots of different styles and prices ranges out there – so do some Internet exploring. I’m not sure they save you a lot of money as much as the convenience and ability to handle and transport a kayak.

This is not a club and there are no obligations, just opportunities to have fun, meet other women and take advantage of some Florida Sunshine!

If you have never kayaked before and want to explore – drop me a line – I’d be happy to demonstrate or take you on an introductory adventure - – we’ll take it easy – my home lake is a perfect spot for expanding your horizons.

left most entrance and did a big loop through the forest. We had the park pretty much to ourselves, along with some jumping mullet -- came pretty close to getting 1 in the boat!

    Escaping from any chances of Red Tide, we want inland for Chassahowitzka. This area easily reminds you of “old”Florida. Easy launch, however it was crowded today, I don’t think we were the only ones looking for water away from the coast. Chassahowitzka has many natural springs and we only visited 4 of the holes. Which means another trip ladies!!

    At the end of Shell Island Road is a beautiful little treasure of a launch. One of the few remaining launch sites that is free. But you'll want to get there early.... As we discovered on our return it is a busy spot boaters & skidoos also use this launch. We headed out to the Rookery Bay / Shell Point paddling trail. It's well marked and really impossible to get lost.
