    Im going on vacation to Florida over the holidays with my family, and was hoping to do some kayaking while I am down there.

    Does anyone know of any good rivers? Any good paddling spots in general.

    If you paddle any rivers in Florida make sure you pick up a can of Crock off at the local paddle shops. It keeps Alligators and Crocodiles from chewing on you or your boat.

    Florida is essentially a giant swamp.

    The kayak fishing is world class. You can catch giant Snook (kind of like a saltwater bass) up to 30lbs in most of the mangrove parks (they fight like monsters). I’ve done it… It’s awesome. You paddle in and out of little tidewater channels totally overgrown with mangroves. There’s a good spot near Fort Lauderdale (where I went), but I think there are good spots all over the place…..

    Otherwise ocean surf… Just south of Daytona is the best surfing in Florida; Cocoa Beach. It’s considered very good by international standards when it’s in, but it’s very inconsistent. You basically need to be there when there’s a hurricane out in the Atlantic, ‘cuz that’s when the surf is 7-10 feet… Otherwise the surf is 1-3 feet at best.

    Cheers,

    Awesome thanks. I’ll prolly end up doing some fishing and some ocean waves if they are half decent.
