Florida Paddling Trails - PaddleFest 2024 - April 11th - 14

Hey All,
Is it cold where you are? Do you dream about paddling in a warmer clime? Want to add to your skillset with some expert instruction? Florida Paddling Trails, PaddleFest is coming!


Hey Paddlers!
By way of introduction, The Florida Paddling Trails Association is, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2007 under the guidance of the Department of Environmental Protection’s Office of Greenways & Trails to be the steward for the 1,515-mile Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail that surrounds the state. In 2009, that stewardship was expanded to all Florida’s water trails.

We are a statewide community of paddlers, clubs, outfitters, and other supporters who share a passion for exploring Florida’s scenic waterways via canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards.

We are opening up (a bit - accommodations are getting tight) - our PaddleFest 2024 event.

Has anyone pulled off (what I call) the ‘FL Paddling Trifecta’ yet:
All within one calendar year:

  • the CT
  • length of Suwannee river
  • length of St Johns river

note: I realize that the ‘Watertribe’ has a race around (most of) FL that includes the Suwannee, so, for them, it would just include doing the St Johns

Registration is OPEN (finally).
