This sounds great, will on trip with couple bike rides to do the 1st 2 weekends in march. Heard good things about this island not too far away from Bradenton will have to try sometime hopefully with some good people
Can't commit at this point. We used to paddle over every year in mid-Feb., weather can be nice but more often wasn't. Usually have dolphins within sight of shore. campground was a lot nicer before they chopped down all the trees.

I've also always wanted to do something like this. It would have to be a weekend with possibly a Friday or Monday added on.
It's a very beautiful and historic place. Great snorkeling I've been for a short day trip before. I wouldn't be able to go, but I encourage everyone to visit even if you don't stay overnight.

Hey there, I'm very new to the hiking world. I went on my first hike up Mount Monadnock last weekend. I did White Dot going up and White Cross going down.

They got slippery and dangerous at times. If you're ever up for a hike, not rock climbing, I would be insterested in meeting for for company. I just don't
