Debris Free Ocean - Coastal Kayak Clean Up (January 23rd @ 10:30AM)

Join us for an educational kayak cleanup with Virginia Key Outdoor Center! We will paddle around the coastline of Virginia Key while removing debris from the water, beaches, and mangroves. You will also learn about the different trash items we collect and why they are polluting our environment, from experts at Debris Free Oceans!  


Reserve your spot ASAP- there are only 18 spaces available. One group of 9 will meet at 10:30 am, one group of 9 will meet at 10:45 am, and each group will be led by a DFO team member. We will email you to let you know what group you are a part of and coordinate keeping groups of friends/family together.  


There will be a flat fee of $35 for all rental types, including paddle boards, singles kayaks, and doubles kayaks- buddy up with a friend on a double to cut the price in half!
