Thanks for the kind words! We look forward to hosting you again :)
The people at Canoe Outpost were very professional and helpful. They made sure we knew exactly what to expect and how long it would take. They were prompt to pick us up after a very relaxing, enjoyable paddle down the river. I was very nervous...More
I signed up my daughter and her husband for the Moonlight trip and they were looking forward to a great experience. Unfortunately, they were very disappointed. At the beginning of the trip, they were the third boat in and they noticed that the guide who...More
The Outpost, which borders Little Manatee River State Park, rents kayaks and canoes and has a pickup service if you’d prefer that rather than paddling back against the current. We thought the staff was very helpful and friendly and our unguided paddle was amazing. We...More
We were a little afraid to do canoë with crocodiles with Kids (15.12. And 6 years old) but the staff is professional and advise well. At the end, no problem we 've made the 1st road (for beginers )2h30.

The gentleman that checked us in on Saturday April 29, I believe the owner or the owners son, is always very kind and professional but he is the only one anymore that is. We have been coming here for several years and in the beginning...More

You can launch your own kayaks in the Little Manatee river state park but there is a fee to enter the park. The Canoe Outpost is a concession that rents kayaks, so they are not going to let you bring your own kayaks. The appeal for using them is that they will pick you up so you don't have to paddle back upriver.

The Little Manatee River is a natural habitat and does have alligators and other wildlife. Although we have fewer gators than some other local rivers, river swimming in Florida always involves risk and you should use great caution. Depending on the river level when you paddle, sections of the river can have many shallow areas, sand bars and relatively clear water and many folks choose to swim and play in the water. Further downstream, the local folks have a rope swing that many folks choose to use. Higher river levels with darker water and swifter current add challenges for folks wishing to swim so I suggest that you call for a river conditions report before planning your trip.
