Trip Description: Spend a day kayaking over 10 miles through the twists and turns of the St. Johns River and surrounding creeks. We will start at Hontoon Island State Park and stop half way at Blue Spring State Park for lunch. If we’re lucky, we might get to eat lunch with some manatees as they make their way to the springhead for winter. This trip is long, but follows the creeks and river downstream.

Transportation is not provided; participants must meet Trip Leaders at the location. Participants must wear a face covering.
