#Amazing Sunsets Miami style

Join us as we hunt down the Sun and catch ocean breezes in the process. We can stop on the beach or raft up and float as the sun sets behind Miami's amazing skyline. The sunsets are spectacular the nights divine. So come out and enjoy nature the way God intended -- up close and personal.

It will be light when we launch, dark when we return. That means lights are required for the paddles. No lights, no paddle, it's the law. Lights are provided for all rentals. If you bring your own you must bring a bright white light that can be used to signal other vessels.

##DIFFICULTY:
This paddle is generally suitable for experienced beginners. At times wind and tide may become challenging. Expect the best and be prepared for the rest.
This is not recommended for first time paddleboarders, please use a kayak instead.

##TIME & PLACE:
Meet at Virginia Key Outdoor Center one hour before to the event start (launch) time. If you are late and miss the launch it is considered a no-show and non-refundable. Please arrive on time.


##DESTINATION:
Final destination and route are subject to weather. The lagoon is always sheltered and the creek is calm. We'll paddle to Norris Cut and either the beach side or the port. Both are spectacular at night. It will be dark so please, stay together.

Drinks, snacks, insect repellent, and lights are available from at the park store.
