Great Stay at Capt. Hiram’s


Taking a zero day at Capt. Hiram’s was a good call. This is a gem of a place. A kayaker’s dream really. They have a beach next to the dock where you can secure your kayaks on some rocks. Even better, request to stay in the motel with room numbers in the 500/600 range and pull your kayaks right up behind the building ( just north of the dock). Easy launch in the morning.

All the staff here have been super friendly and accommodating. We can’t say enough about the dockmaster-Tom. So helpful and full of information. We hope to get this added to the CT guidebook.

BTW, there is a Walmart Supercenter a half mile away and some fast food places nearby too.

Shoving off tomorrow. We planned out the next week of stops. All of this is dependent on wind, weather, and current. Looks like we get one more motel stay before reaching the finish point. Stay tuned.

Advance Around!

    Did you guys decide whether you’re going to paddle via Banana River, Sykes Creek or stay on the ICW?
