We planning an outing to Weeki Wachee the first week of April. Check out this clear water. Details to follow.
Shell Creek is beautiful. Cypress, Live Oak, Turtles and an occasional Alligator.
Very civilized launch. Bring your kayak down to the float and get in.
Pull yourself and your kayak into the Myakka River.
To haul out drive your kayak onto the float and pull yourself in. Then you can stand-up and get out with dry feet.
This park provides excellent access to the Myakka River. There are two rookeries downstream and many channels upstream. There are picnic tables, covered areas and toilet facilities.
If you have avoided trying kayaking due to mobility issues this place might help.
