Kayaking

The PPYC Kayak Group consists of an energetic subgroup of members who enjoy venturing off the beaten path and exploring some of the less accessible parts of southwest Florida. Ranging in age from 80+ down to some of the younger members of the club, this group shares a love for interacting intimately with the surrounding natural environment. 
Whether paddling down one of the numerous rivers and streams which drain the interior or skirting the mangrove shoreline of the harbor, they get to see sights not possible from a sailboat or power boat. About four formal trips are organized each season (November, January, February & March) with occasional "get up and go" outings at other times. Two trips are planned to be slightly more challenging and two are for anyone who feels comfortable sitting in a kayak.
It is not necessary to own a kayak. Rentals can be arranged at several of the locations.
