Best Places to Kayak in Northern Florida

Florida is arguably one of the most beautiful places in the United States to go kayaking at. With so many places to go, you want to try to visit as many of these places as you can. However, these are some of the places you should go to if you have a chance to go kayaking in the northern part of Florida.

Haw Creek Preserve

The Haw Creek Preserve is perfect for the kayaker that enjoys exploring as well as fishing. The best place to start is Russell Landing, where you can head downstream underneath the trees. Watch out for any alligators, wild hogs, bald eagles and the occasional boat. Quite a few fish can be found in the waters, including black crappie, warmouth, and bluegill.

Choctawhatchee River

The Choctawhatchee River is a roughly 140 mile l0ng river, 70 miles of which are in Florida. This river then flows into the Choctawhatchee Bay, and shortly afterward the Gulf of Mexico. This is a relatively calm stream to go down, but it still has quite a couple rocks in it. Make sure to be careful not to catch onto one of them.

Lake Wimico

Lake Wimico is a small and moderately remote lake around the town of Apalachicola. Being somewhat distant from any human technology in the area, you can still see Florida’s natural wildlife there. This is probably the best lake to go on if you want to bring your family kayaking while on vacation, or if you live in Florida.
