Shuttle Service
$25/person and $25/boat

Paddlers can choose a pre- or post-trip shuttle for themselves and their boats.  Those choosing a pre-trip shuttle will need to report to the Shrine Club in Branford by 1PM on October 22. Paddlers and their boats will then be shuttled back to Madison Blue Springs State Park to check in for the trip.  Pre-trip shuttlers can save $25 by dropping off their boats at Madison Blue Springs State Park before driving to Branford to meet the shuttle. Paddlers may also choose to leave their vehicles at Madison Blue Springs State Park and take the post-trip shuttle back there at the trip’s conclusion.

Paddlers needing to rent a canoe or kayak and related gear may contact our partnering outfitter, Suwannee Canoe Outpost.
