Clear Canoe in the Gulf Adventure! Klear Kanoo

Clear Canoe

We packed up the Clear Canoe (Spelled Klear Kanoo) and headed for the Gulf of Mexico on a perfect beach day! The wind was mild and coming from a Northerly direction resulting in flat, calm waters! We unloaded as many admirers oohed, ahhed with their eyes glued on our Kanoo. We walked along the sand to the shore. We smiled back as our excitement grew as we neared the shore. The Gulf was a fantastic aqua blue and as soon as we set the boat in the water, we knew we were in for a real treat! With our gear, cooler and ourselves in the boat, we paddled off. The Turquoise color surrounded us entirely. Below, we could see the ocean floor. It felt like we were magically floating on the water with a clear view of the world below. We caught our first glimpse of sea life below the boat. A large school of fish danced as they swam underfoot. With nothing to impede our view, it was like Scuba Diving but without the tanks, equipment and masks! Onlookers pointed and gave us the thumbs up as we passed. I know they thought the boat was cool but there was no way they knew just how cool paddling in this boat is! We sat in our hard formed seats with back support and armrests comfortable as can be! We saw fish and jellyfish. We had hoped to see a turtle or dolphin but really, just floating along in our Klear Kanoo on that perfect day was enough!

These Kanoo’s are perfect for all ages and all skill levels. Anyone can Kanoo! Especially with the formed seats with back support!

Econfina Springs in a Clear Canoe (Klear Kanoo)

We loaded up our Clear Canoes, spelled..Klear Kanoos on our truck Sunday morning. The weather was perfect. 90 degrees with puffy clouds in the sky. A slight cool breeze was the only sign that Fall is coming. On our way, we received alot of happy waves and surprised, pointing fingers from cars that pass us on way. People smile and waive or give us the “thumbs up” because they like the boats. “I’ve never seen anything like it” or “those are so cool, where can I get one?” we’re asked at stop lights. We smile back. So glad that the Kanoos make people happy!

We arrived at the Econfina Springs Canoe Drop area, carried the boats down to the staging dock and the adventure was on! We took a picnic lunch, some fishing poles and paddled off.

The beauty of nature surrounded us. The canopy of trees with rays of sunlight shined through as we drifted on cool water as we were carried along in a smooth, flowing current. Below and around us, nothing to impede the view. It was like literally ‘sitting on water’.

We sit in these totally clear canoes. We had been in them many times before on our many Klear Kanoo adventures, but we were both even more proud of them today. Their performance on the river was impressive.

The current was smooth and moving at a moderate speed. There were fallen trees that would come up pretty quickly and the Klear Kanoos maneuvered quite impressively. They take waves and cut through water with the V-shaped bow then flatten to a 3 ft wide, flat bottom that lends terrific stability!  We were able to steer easily and make controlled stops and turns!

All the while, we sit. Completely surrounded by water. Underneath, on the sides, there is nothing to impede our view. We see river floor as we glide along. Fish swim underfoot. We can even see tree limbs that would be unseen, under the water.

Awed by the beauty, we paddle along. Then, in the distance, we see it. Spring water. The clearest, cleanest most beautiful water you ever want to see. It turns from a light tea color to a luminescent green-blue. Breathtaking. It totally surrounded us. Below, around, in front, back. We were floating on this incredible water. It was like a dream. So glad we were on a Klear Kanoo (Clear Canoe)!

Grayton Beach gets an Artificial Reef!

Grayton Beach gets an Artificial Reef!

IMG_3260

Grayton Beach gets an Artificial Reef! Yay! SWARA (South Walton Artificial Reef Association) has succeeded after many years of hard work to get Artificial Reefs installed 400 feet off of the Grayton Beach State Park. The dredging boat brought the Reefs in on Friday am from Mobile, AL. and spent the better part of the day, assembling, then installing each pylon one by one. The units form the shape of a turtle. These reefs are expected to attract a huge variety of sea life and allow for excellent diving, snorkeling and of course… Klear Kanooing! See the video.

To Protect, conserve and enhance marine fisheries

That was the driving force for Andy McAlexander when he started the South Walton Artificial Reef Association close to two years ago.

“The idea came to me to create a system of near shore reefs that are accessible to kayak, paddle board and just free swimming from here,” said McAlexander. “And we are fortunate enough that we have been able to receive a ton of support from our local community that has propelled us in the last two years.”

But it has been a journey to get to where they are today.

Funding was the number one obstacle for the organization.

The Coastal Conservation Association was the first group to help, and from there that act caused a domino effect.

“Which gave our county commission and local TDC the confidence to invest in what we were doing and begin to open their eyes to the future of what this program can bring to our county,” said VP of SWARA, Jim Richard.

“Alys Beach Foundation, The Coastal Conservation Association, Stinky’s Fish Camp, and the Tourist Development Council, of course the Howard Group played a major role, and just recently, the St. Joe’s Foundation,” said McAlexander.

Each structure costs between $3,000 to $5,000.

But the funding doesn’t stop once the artificial reefs are built and placed into the Gulf at Grayton Beach.

McAlexander says it will take annual support and constant belief to increase the economic basis of the entire community.

“There are four snorkel reefs, they are on second sand bar, and they are equally spaced through out the county about five to six miles apart. Starting at Grayton Beach State Park. Then we have nine fish dive reefs that are in 55 to 60 feet of water, those are spaced about two to three miles apart all at major public accesses,” said McAlexander.

SWARA Hopes to deploy the first artificial reef sometime this fall or winter.

“By creating something where people can access it readily from our beaches and they will see what is down there, they will see coral, they will see fish, as oppose to just white sand,” said McAlexander.

“A living habitat for small fish and it will create a much larger ecosystem right off of our beaches that are pretty much barren,” said Richard.

McAlexander says the strong support from the community will keep this project going for generations to come.

“When you see what is out there, what we are creating and what we are bringing to the community, I think it is a win for everyone,” stated McAlexander.
