Comments: Boiling Creek is somewhat narrow and twisty - so the ability to be able to turn your boat is a necessity. This is not a hard paddle, but a bit twisty. Bring snacks or lunch and plenty to drink - This trip requires a shuttle, so time will be spent shuttling drivers to their vehicles. Bring rain gear in the event of a rain shower. Bring sunscreen in the event of no rain shower. Paddle time will be determined by group size and speed - could be 3 1/2 hours, could be 5 hours. Come and enjoy.
Remember each paddler will need to carry a current green Eglin Recreation Permit FY05.
