Paddling Tip of the Week
The Turner River is one of the most popular kayak trails in the Everglades for a good reason – it’s the best. Unlike most trails in the area, where you choose either cypress swamp or mangrove or sawgrass environments, the Turner River takes you through it all – with over-the-top scenery and wildlife, too. November through February is the best time to explore this waterway, as the mosquitos are few and the water levels are not too low. The weekly paddling tip is provided by the Ocean Tribe Paddling Club, which is affiliated with the Sanibel Sea School. For more information, visit oceantribepaddlers.org.
