Welcome to Florida Paddle Notes
Each of Florida’s many waterways has a unique personality, from the wildlife and vegetation above the surface to the life below the surface. Welcome to Florida Paddle Notes. This site was created to give you a more detailed look at many of these waterways and offer information to help you plan and enjoy your next paddle.
I grew up enjoying Florida’s waterways, whether at the beach surfing, water skiing, or fishing, I was always around the water! As a teenager, I purchased my first Mohawk Canoe and began my exploration of Florida’s many rivers and springs.
This site is dedicated to providing you with a detailed insight into these numerous waterways, offering information to enhance your planning and enjoyment of your next paddle. Each unique post offers a brief overview of the paddled waterway, along with launch locations, width, depth, and other details specific to the waterway. You’ll find a detailed map highlighting points of interest, mile markers, and additional paddle information. Additionally, each post features a photo gallery showcasing the diverse fauna and flora along the way, aiding in the identification and appreciation of the waterway.
Florida Paddle Notes is intuitively organized with pages dedicated to Waterways, Resources specific to paddling in Florida, an About page, and a Contact page. Currently, my primary focus is on the waterways in North Central Florida, my home. Occasional travels allow exploration of waterways in the Panhandle or further south, and I’ll be sure to include these new adventures. Enjoy the site, and I look forward to seeing you on the water! – James
