Paddle Out

Kickoff the Independence Day Celebrations with a patriotic paddle event on Thursday, July 3 from 9 a.m. to noon. Join the Forgotten Coast Paddle Club as they paddle down the Apalachicola River in a three mile easy paddle. Interested paddlers will meet at the Apalachicola Maritime Museum and be shuttled upriver where they will launch and paddle down to Riverfront Park. There they will join the celebration presented by Historic Apalachicola Main Street beginning at noon including music, food, and children’s activities. Paddlers are encouraged to fly red, white, and blue colors so bring your flags! Need a kayak? Apalachicola Maritime Museum will provide a kayak, paddle and personal flotation device for $20 (call 850-653-2500 or book online to reserve). Plan for a two to three-hour trip depending on your paddling level. Bring sunscreen, water and snack. Apalachicola celebrates on July 3. Join us at the museum at 7:00 p.m. for a cookout and watch the fireworks from our docks.
