Sunrise and Moonlit Paddles

Moonlit Paddle

Enjoy a Ranger guided canoe paddle down the Ichetucknee as the sun sets and full moon begins to illuminates the river. Listen to the sounds of a day’s end and a night’s awakening! Paddlers should bring a small light source for the end of the trip and a great attitude!

Sunrise Paddle

Every second full moon of the year (for 2017, it is February 10th), thousands of Florida Gar congregate on the Ichetucknee River to spawn.  At the peak of this season, it is quite a sight to behold!

Spring is a special time on the river, with viewing opportunities for many other types of fish, reptiles, and birds as well.The tour will meet at the North Entrance, off Elim Church Road (County Road 238).  Launch time will be as close to sunrise as possible.

The tour will end at the Last Take-Out at the South End of the park, and transportation will be provided back to the North Entrance.  Participants should dress warmly, as dictated by the weather.  Flashlights during the launching time are recommended.  GoPro-style cameras held underwater have captured some amazing footage on previous tours!

Please call the park concessionaire, Paddling Adventures 386 • 497 • 1113 to reserve a spot.
