If you need a kayak, please contact Tom at http://kayakcedarkeys.com/ or Dan at http://Cedarkeypaddling.com for rentals, and make sure they have the correct size boat for the trips you select. Also make sure beforehand that they can shuttle your boat if needed. For rentals, we recommend you bring your own rack as the number of different paddles and locations will be difficult for an outfitter to shuttle most people.

For a full list of Cedar Key accommodations and eateries go to VisitLevy.com and choose “Stay” and/or “Eat” from the drop down menu, then select Cedar Key.
