Ten Thousand Islands Mini-Expedition

March 18 - March 22


10,000 Islands Mini-Expedition

March 18-22, 2024 (Mon – Fri)

Location: Everglades City, FL (meeting place)

Instructors/Guides: Jeff Atkins, Rick Wiebush

Cost: $550 Note: Save 15% if you do this and the Sun Coast trip the following week

The 10,000 Islands section of Everglades National Park is a virtually untouched wilderness that seems to have been designed for exploration by sea kayak. So that’s what we are going to do for five days and four nights, moving from camp site to camp site, expedition-style. We’ll be carrying all our own food, water, tents and camping supplies with us in our boats. Expect to paddle about 10-12 nm each day, using the tides to give us a boost. We’ll be keeping our eyes out for Brown (and maybe White) Pelicans, Roseate Spoonbills, dolphins, sea turtles and possibly a manatee or alligator. We’ll also be paying close attention to our nautical charts since that many islands so close together can seem like a maze!

Our camp sites are wide, sandy, pristine beaches that we want to keep that way, so Leave No Trace principles will apply.

Note: This trip is full but has a standby list
