If you are a BSIA member and are interested in kayaking with our neighborhood group, please send an email to email@example.com.
We will send you specific information about the kayak group and when any paddles are scheduled.
Join us to see some of the beautiful Florida water in the Punta Gorda area.
October 20- Shell Creek Shell Creek is a beautiful creek close to Punta Gorda; we usually see many turtles, birds, and the occasional alligator. There is good parking and it is an easy launch and paddle. This is a protected paddle so if it is windy that is not a problem. It can be warm, but hopefully by later October the temperatures will be comfortable in the morning.
November 17- Alligator Creek We will launch at Allapatchee Park. The tide timing will be good, on this day, if folks want to go through a mangrove tunnel and the small lagoon area into the BSI canals briefly. If not, we can stay in the creek. A nice natural paddle behind BSI rather than the canals.
December 15- Port Charlotte Beach Park a good paddle convenient to Punta Gorda.
January 19- Babcock Webb This is a nice time to do BW. According to their website there is no hunting season open on this date-- BW can be very busy during certain hunting seasons and it is nice to avoid-- plus cooler weather!
February16- Peace River Launch site to be announced at a later date. Rookeries might just be starting to get active and I will choose a location based on this. It is always fun to watch this activity!
