Intro to Kayak Guiding on the Refuge

Wednesday January 16th 10 am - noon Big Pine 

Have you ever wondered about leading a kayak excursion? Are you interested in learning to guide? Just love being on the water? Want to share that enthusiasm with others? Or do you want an excuse to get out on the water once in a while?

The Florida Keys Wildlife Society is recruiting individuals to assist with their Full Moon Kayak Excursions.

Join us for A Free Training Session on Wednesday January 16th from 10:00 am to Noon. This fun, on-the-water training is for people ages 18 and over who are interested in learning new skills, want to refresh existing skills, and discover how to become one of our volunteer guides on the monthly Full Moon Kayak Excursions. Kayaks and gear are included. Meet at Big Pine Kayak Adventures, Bogey road, Big Pine Key. Unsure of your skills? Build your expertise with us and have fun doing it. Seasonal and full time residents welcome. Space is limited so reserve your spot today!

Full Moon Kayak Excursions Big Pine Key This is a relaxing, easy 2 hour paddle along the mangrove shoreline of No Name Key. Don't expect a white water challenge, this is one of our favorite versions of Nature Therapy. You'll learn about the precious mangrove forest habitat, the birds, fishes and animals that live there. The highlight of this paddle tour comes when you round the northern point of No Name Key and you stop to watch the sun setting as the full moon rises. Sponsored by Big Pine Kayak Adventures, this is one of FAVOR/FKWS's few fund raisers. You get to experience this incredible wildlife encounter for only $25 per person which includes kayak, gear, and experienced guide. Bringing your camera for your own incredible photos? Bring your refillable water bottle, camera (in dry bag) and a flashlight. Call Captain Bill 305- 872-7474 to register. We meet at Big Pine Kayak on Bogey Drive, Big Pine Key.
