Padde Punta Gorda

As a part of TEAMs Maritime Committee, Paddle Punta Gorda emphasizes that while Punta Gorda is a “water community,” that means even more than being adjacent to the Peace River and Charlotte Harbor.  The event premiered on November 12, 2016 with naturalists guiding 90 kayakers through five tours on the Peace River, Shell Creek, Alligator Creek, Lettuce Lake and Ponce de Leon Park waters.

Paddle Punta Gorda is taking 2017 off while we’re busy helping the City of Punta Gorda plan new kayak launches for the area.  Look for this event to return in 2018 when we hope to inaugurate these efforts. Until then…keep paddling!
