This was an excursion co-sponsored by Salt Springs Alliance and the Pasco County Parks & Recreation "Paddling Pasco" group. We launched beginning at 8:00 AM and had about 50 boats in the water. Our destination was Durney Key, which is about a mile off the coast in the Gulf of Mexico. Once on the island, everyone had fun exploring, wading, shelling and making new friends. One of the main attractions was watching people try out Steve Hunter's Epic racing kayak - and trying to keep their balance. We spent about an hour on the island before heading back to our launch point.
