Bring your own kayak or SUP, life jacket, fishing poles & license (if you want to fish), 360 night light (if you want to stay later- sunset will be at 7:54pm), plenty of water, sunscreen & bugspray and your friends & family! If you’re bringing your own boat no need to sign up as this is an open & free event, just be ready to launch at 6pm.
If you don’t have your own kayak you can rent one (comes with lifejacket, paddle) from MAC for a discount off the regular half-day rental rate. Be sure to reserve in advance as we will only be bringing enough kayaks for those with advance registration. Use the ticket link in the invite to reserve a kayak at the discounted rate.
We will be paddling St. Mary’s Slough/Bayou.St. Mary’s Bayou is a large marsh area. You can spend all day exploring here. This is a great site for birding & fishing. When the winds are high, this is a good site to paddle as there is some protection from the wind. Take a GPS as it is easy to get lost in the maze of bayous.
From Matagorda head south on FM 2031 across the bridge. The trailhead is on the east side of the road just past Snapper’s Restaurant and Bar.
