Mangroves a plenty

A self-supported trip created by spudpotatohead

Trip Overview

This is a popular place to put in with kayakers as a number of commercial tours launch here. There is pay parking from a machine. Fortunately I got here early and nabbed a parking space.
There are many places to paddle to, so I was relying on my GPS pretty heavily. It easy to get turned around without some sort of guidance. There are a few narrow mangrove tunnels. Not a ton of wildlife to be seen and the mangrove sightings did get a bit old after a while - still a good day of exercise.
watch for fire ants when taking out. I have an Oru so I carried my yak to a ‘grassy’ area to dry off and fold up. It was covered in tiny ants and my ankles and hands got eaten alive. Took a week to get somewhat under control they were so friggin itchy. I liked that there is a freshwater spigot to wash things down with.

Safety Notes

Watch out for fire ants!
