I grew up in the panhandle of Florida in Fort Walton Beach, FL. Some of the best places to canoe are right here in Florida. Most of my life has been spent on the water fishing, canoeing, boating, swimming, surfing... I've spent a lot of time on the bays, bayous and beaches on the west coast of florida from Pensacola to Tampa to the Keys. Although you will regularly see me paddling a canoe or kayak off the beaches or in the sound in Tampa & Destin areas, I try to go to new places frequently and when I do, I post details and pictures about the places I canoe. I hope that you find this information useful.
