GUIDED PADDLE TOURS

BLACKWATER CREEK

TO KATIES LANDING

Participants should be in good physical shape and have had previous paddling experience. This is not always an easy paddle sometime there are obstacles that must be carried over

10-mile paddle that includes a riverside picnic and shuttle back to the start point.

The Blackwater Creek is for those paddlers who enjoy a bit more adventure and love serious wilderness.

 

The creek flows through an ancient, maybe prehistoric, cypress swamp. Born on the waters of Lake Norris, the creek stretches for over twenty miles, eventually emerging onto the Wekiva River just upstream from the St. Johns River.

We’ll paddle the last five shady and twisting miles that are absolutely gorgeous.

 

Upon reaching the confluence with the Wild and Scenic Wekiva River, we will paddle 3.5 miles upstream on Wekiva river to Katies Landing. Expect to encounter otters, alligators, wading birds, owls, and the occasional black bear.
