A collection of images and stories about kayaking at Cedar Key
A few shots from my sunrise walk in Cedar Key…
A group of kayakers head out into the morning sun for a paddle in Cedar Key… In talking to one of them he said their plan was to paddle over to Atsena Otie Key, but since there was a pretty good chop in the Gulf today they decided to head into the back bayou.
And off they go into the calm water of the bayou… Amongst the maze of mangroves and oyster reefs they will almost certainly see a nice variety of birds and other wildlife.

Today was one of those absolutely beautiful days here in paradise, err I mean Cedar Key… And what a perfect day for kayaking. The gulf water was smooth as glass and the weather was wonderful.
If you weren’t in the mood for kayaking it was a perfect day to relax on the never–crowded Cedar Key beach.
A few days ago my wife and I decided to take a kayak paddle in the back bayou area of Cedar Key. On this trip we saw lots of interesting things as well as lots of birds, including the impressive White Pelicans.
Over the last month, the open gulf has been as smooth as glass on many occasions – making for great kayaking in the open water.
Cedar Key is a kayaking paradise. There is an extremely vast ecosystem to explore while it’s shallow, protected water make it navigable by kayak most of the time. Today was an absolutely beautiful day for kayaking at Cedar Key.
The above shot shows how calm the water is much of the time…
