Shuttle Service.  Paddlers will park their vehicles at the trip's ending point at Perdido Pass, AL by 1PM on March 10.  After boats and gear are loaded onto trailers and the truck, paddlers will be shuttled to the trip's launching point at Otto Hill Campground northwest of Cantonment, FL.  Vehicles will be waiting for paddlers at trip's end.

Boat Recommendations
Even in good weather, it's not uncommon to experience windy and choppy conditions in the Perdido River as it widens near the Gulf of Mexico...though we'll paddle in water protected by barrier islands.  For this trip, we recommend kayaks of at least 14 feet in length equipped with a rudder or skeg and a spray skirt. If you have any questions about the kind of environment you will encounter on this trip, please contact Bill Richards at bill@paddleflorida.org.


Required Liability Waiver
Participants will be required to complete a liability waiver, which can be downloaded from the 'Documents' tab of this page.  If you're sending your registration form through regular mail, please also print and send your completed waiver with your check.  You can also bring your completed waiver with you to trip check-in.  We will also have blank waivers onsite for paddlers to complete.
