Florida's Beautiful Nature Coast
from a Paddleboard
Paddling the River & Springs
The spring-fed Chassahowitzka River was named an Outstanding Florida Waterway for its pristine, natural condition. Beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife. The spring-fed river is generally clear, changing to salt water as it approaches Chassahowitzka Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, about 5.6 miles from our house. It's a sweet SUP for sure!
A SUP on the Chaz never disappoints with over 250 species of birds and wildlife sightings of alligators, manatees, raccoons, otters, deer and more.
There are few things more fun that scalloping! The shallow grass flats of the Chassahowitzka River is a quiet spot for scallop hunters. Spring-fed, this 5 mile long river is home to pristine saltwater bays and diverse aquatic life.
Each season begins July 1st and runs through late September. This does require a Florida license (GoOutdoorsFlorida.com) and proper safety equipment.
