(Craig Park / Tarpon Springs) Bring your boat, paddle and appetite. Authentic Greek restaurants featuring delicious Gyros, Dolmades and fresh fish are sure to delight your tummy after an easy paddling trip on the Anclote River. For Anne, Wayne and I, it didn't work quite so easily.

3 informal put-ins on the Anclote: at the US 19A bridge over the Anclote -- near the sponge docks. Paddle upstream into the large marsh area between 19A and 19. #2 is off US 19, just north of the St. Lukes eye clinic. Look carefully. There is a wonderful biker bar right at the put-in. The east side of the Upper Anclote is wild. #3 is where Perrine Ranch Rd. crosses the river -- take Darlington Rd east from 19 or Perrine Ranch Rd going west from Seven Springs Blvd. Paddle upstream from the bridge -- the prettiest serction of the Anclote.

What an interesting paddling report about the Tarpon Springs area. You were fortunate that you had the tides working with you.
