     Florida is filled with opportunities for boating adventures and winter is a particularly attractive time for Northerners to take a trip there.  You can rent canoes, sailboats, houseboats, or fishing boats, or as Kaz and I did - take your own.  A particularly helpful planning guide is the "Florida Atlas and Gazetteer" (see the Trip Tips for ordering information).  This guide provides very detailed maps of Florida and includes important recreational information.  The canoeist and touring kayaker will be particularly pleased with Florida's streams and rivers.  In fact, the wilderness waterway, our objective on this trip, was especially designed with the canoeist and kayaker in mind, but as it turned out a small sailboat was the perfect craft for this waterway.
