Join us for a leisurely paddle from the Causeway Islands Park to Fisherman Key, Kitchel Key and Picnic Island. We will explore the wildlife and beautiful scenery that this area has to offer. If you have a canine companion they are welcome to come along.

Canines must be well mannered and have current vaccinations. The maximum weight for the pooches is 100 pounds, and no more than one per boat please.
