We will launch from Turtle Mound for a fun paddle around the islands of the Indian River Lagoon. We will stop along the way to explore and appreciate the beautiful water and wildlife that inhabits this tranquil part of the East Coast of Florida.

The Turtle Mound is a prehistoric archaeological site where native Timucuan Indians would cast their oyster shells after dinner. It is the largest shell midden in the United States, 600 feet long and rising 50 feet. A boardwalk trail takes you to a viewing platform at the top, providing sweeping views of the dunes, beaches and Indian River Lagoon from the highest point in the park.
Cost is $35 for board, life preserver, leash rental and guided excursion.
Canaveral National Seashore charges $10 per vehicle to enter. We can arrange for car pooling prior to event.
