Morning Birding and Wildlife Paddle

Ocean Tribe Paddlers organizes a meet-up each month for paddling enthusiasts to enjoy the community of a group paddle, share tips and ideas, and meet new friends to paddle with.

On January 15th, we'll be exploring Bowman's Beach Bayou. Those interested in joining the paddle can bring their own paddle craft, or borrow one. To reserve a loaner, please email

Launch: 9:00 AM from the Bowman's Beach Kayak Launch. Be sure to visit our Facebook page for any weather updates. We will post about any schedule changes at least one hour prior to the event.

Duration: While exploring the mangroves of Bowman's Beach we will be looking for local wildlife, often seeing osprey, wading birds, manatees, and fish species. We will be returning to the launch site around 10:30 AM.
