Early Spring destinations
Posted by: old_user on Jan-04-12 2:49 PM (EST)
My fiance and I are looking to put together a 7 day sea kayaking trip in mid March this year and we're hoping for some input on destinations.
We've both paddled quite a bit in North Carolina on the Outer Banks but we're looking for something a little bit more... remote.
We're both reasonably competent paddlers (her more so than me!) but we're not looking to do anything extreme or overly challenging, preferably warm-ish and local outfitters we can hire kayaks from. The closer to the South East the better but we'll happily consider traveling anywhere in North America if it's worth it.
Thanks in advance!

Utah lake Powell. If has more shoreline than the east and west coast of usa combined. Good weather , beauty, anazasi ruins, petroglyphs, hiking, few people

and don't confine yourself to the Wilderness Waterway. There is a lot of paddling there..

I agree. We're going down first week of March to do the whole Wilderness waterway, but you can find lots of 7 day trips down there. You could go out of Everglades city and hit the outside islands for a few days then work your way back on the inside so you can see both areas.

Yes to everything Pikabike wrote. I was there in March a couple years ago. Went out on the Lake on a Monday. Had the place pretty much to myself. On Saturday morning it seemed every houseboat in the SW was entering the lake. The houseboats are the size of small apt buildings.

Contact South coast Paddling company in Ocean Springs for boat rental. If your serious about sea paddling, google Horn Island MS. But there is other remote stuff too.
