Comments: The full moon will be visible when we put in at 6:00 PM. At about 8:14 PM, the moon will enter the earth's shadow. The total lunar eclipse will be from 9:23 to 10:45 PM. We will stay out for some of the total eclipse, but probably not all of it.
The paddle will be to somewhere in Bay Minette Basin or possibly over to the fork in the Blakeley and Apalachee Rivers. Please bring a flashlight or headlamp for the return trip and to meet state boating regulations for paddling at night. You may also want to bring along some bug spray, fluids and snacks to celebrate the festivities. This will be an easy trip suitable for new or beginner paddlers.
