Big Hickory Island Sandbar Party (Paddle)!
April 20 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
***Cross-Posted with NAN, FM Kayak, and Beach Bum Groups – Please sign up on only one site!***
Arrive by kayak, SUP, or boat! This will be more of a beach meetup than a paddle. Launch where and when you like and meet us on Big Hickory Island. ***Notice: Big Hickory Island is also an unofficial nude beach. You will most likely encounter nude sunbathers (not me!). ***
I will launch from the boat ramp area (Bay Park North) next to Big Hickory Grill, across from Little Hickory Island Beach Park. Anyone is welcome to meet me and paddle out from there (just don’t park in the restaurant lot). Other potential launching locations include: Bonita water tower area, Dog Beach area, and Lovers Key boat ramp.
You can rent a kayak at Lovers Key boat ramp, inside Lovers Key SP, and at the launch area across from the Bonita water tower.
Location: Big Hickory Island/sandbar, between Little Hickory Beach Park and Dog Beach/Lovers Key. Accessible by water only!
What to Bring (in addition to your usual kayak stuff): water, sunscreen, noodle/raft, towel, chair, umbrella, snacks/lunch, adult beverages (optional). Note: there are no “facilities” on Big Hickory, but if nature calls you can paddle over to Little Hickory Beach Park and use theirs. Also, almost no shade so bring an umbrella. I will send my cell number to all attendees. We can also communicate via Meetup.
See you on Big Hickory!
