Paddle Often, Paddle Safely  


Hi Folks


Currently we are back under construction, due to problems with our last web host.


Soon all of the web pages you were accustomed to seeing will be back up and running

SR 40 west towards Dunnellon (20 m)

Turn left (South) onto US 41 (4 m),

Turn right (west) onto SR 40 (West Pennsylvania Ave) (0.5 m)

SR 40 bends to right, stay on SR 40 (12.9 m)

In Inglis, stay straight, cross over US 19 and remain on SR 40 (6.4 m)

At destination on left (south).


This location has several areas that could be utilized by kayaks as well as there are substantial boat ramps just a bit further west.


The Trip Coordinator may adjust actual start spot based on public use and tides.


From this launch site we can either go into the Gulf and check out the different spoil islands or we can turn upstream onto Bennet's Creek and travel towards Inglis

Notice the Sailboat Icon.  Look for us there first, but depending on other public use we may have to move a bit further down.

A previous route taken to see the spoils, not to say this is exactly how any other trip would go.


And here is a previous excursion on Bennet's Creek.
