Sunset & Mars Viewing Kayak Tour

This event has expired and is here for your information.

October 13, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

This is a specialized paddle down the Chassahowitzka River! We will see the sunset through the palm trees within a diverse natural swamp hammock on a primitive area of the river.
Then as we paddle back up river Mars will grow impressively bright, even brighter than Jupiter, making for a spectacular sight rising in the east after sunset in the constellation Pisces.
Mars at Opposition. The red planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long. October 12th, 13th & 14th.

We will also learn about constellations, planets and how the native Indians used the night sky as a calendar and to navigate. There’s no saying what types of nocturnal wildlife and surprises we may see on this adventure!!!

Kayak and all equipment is included. Kayak are fitted with lights for night time navigation and safety. 2 -3 Hour Tour
