Canoe Camping

Where
There are tons of great places to go canoe camping in Florida, from the dark waters of the Suwannee to the mangrove islands of the Everglades.
When
Just like regular camping, the cooler months make for a more enjoyable experience, due to better weather and lack of bugs.
How much
If you choose to rent a canoe, rates are around $25 a day which includes shuttle back to where you parked your car.
What you’ll need
– Contact an outfitter
– Pack just the basics (think backpacking)
– Put everything in dry bags and rope together
– Leave a travel plan with someone not going on the trip

Sailing

When
Any time of the year is a good time to go sailing.
Where
Most any body of water can be sailed upon, it just depends on your boat. Many sailing classes are available in local lakes, which many try before getting out on the big water.
How much
Sailing lessons vary price-wise depending on location and the type of boat you are learning on. The Rudder Club, who we sailed with offers a basic sailing class for $250, which includes 4 days of instruction.
What you’ll need
– Sailboat
– Water & wind
– Find a sailing school and take lessons or ask an experienced sailor to show you the lines.
