**Important Location and Time Change**
For your safety and comfort, we are relocating the launch site for this weekend’s Ais on the Lagoon Community Paddle from the US Sailing Center to the park under the east end of the Stuart Causeway. With a forecast of strong northeast winds on Sunday, this launch site will provide a more sheltered paddle up the scenic eastern shoreline of the Indian River Lagoon. Don’t worry – the paddle will still include a stop along the shoreline of Hutchinson Island for a waterfront breakfast and a historical presentation by Indian Riverkeeper Marty Baum. Our new launch time will be 8:30 am, but please arrive by 8:00 am to register and launch your kayaks. Rental kayaks are still available from South River Outfitters. Call 772-223-1500 to reserve a boat.
If you are coming from the mainland, you will cross Stuart Causeway and take the first right as you come down the bridge towards Hutchinson Island. This road will loop back under the bridge, where you will find ample parking and an easy beach launch site to the left (south), just before the boat ramps. If you are coming from Hutchinson Island, you will make the last left before the bridge starts. See map below.
