Thinking about leaving the cold/snowny Northeast for a kayak trip to Sunny/ Warm Florida. Would like to paddle different places where I can paddle for a day or 2 then move on to another area. I have read a few articles about Florida paddling. I am looking to leave around the 16th of Fed. or middle of March. Any suggestions where to paddle and stay would be great. I may do some camping or just get a room at a local motel. Any suggestions in Florida area is welcome Thank You Bluewaterman

A thick book, Paddler's Guide to the Sunshine State, by Sandy Huff. It contains 91 descriptions of trips throughout the state. My copy is from 2001, so check for an updated version.
Lots of good trips here|

We saw very few people. It was cold (relatively) and the visibility for three days was limited to a few hundred feet. Only saw one motorboat on the water and no paddlers at all.

if you'd like to visit central Florida. We live in Leesburg, and know the Ocala Forest trips and streams south and west of it to the Gulf. We've paddled much more of the state, but that's what we consider out back yard. There are some wonderful trips in this area, fresh or salt water!
I highly recommend that you..|

If you decided of Northwest Florida get in touch with either the West Florida Canoe and Kayak Club or Florida Pandhandle Canoe & Kayak Connection. There is almost always someone able to paddle. The site https://sites.google.com/site/jwparkpaddles/ is a good resource for paddle trip information.
