You might catch a glimpse of deer, particularly if you stay at Highland Beach. Although deer are generally upland creatures, even antlered deer can penetrate the thick tangle of mangrove forests. But the most frequent mammals you will encounter on your paddles are Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. Although they are saltwater mammals, dolphins travel upriver in search of prey and can be observed splashing in bays or herding fish onto riverbanks. They are curious and sometimes tilt their bodies to watch you with an inquisitive eye.
The latitude and longitude grid system is likely quite familiar to you, but here is a refresher, pertinent to visualizing the GPS coordinates. Imaginary lines of latitude—called parallels and approximately 69 miles apart from each other—run horizontally around the globe. Each parallel is indicated by degrees from the equator (established to be 0°): up to 90°N at the North Pole, and down to 90°S at the South Pole. Imaginary lines of longitude—called meridians—run perpendicular to latitude lines.
For group paddles, plan your choice of campsites carefully. Only one tent will fit on a single chickee platform (double chickees accommodate two), and ground sites as well as some beach sites are small. For the maximum number of people and parties allowed at each location, see Part Five, The Campsites. And remember, unless you encounter dangerous conditions or emergency situations, do not stay at sites you have not reserved. ► When camping in proximity to others, be respectful of their needs for a quiet and peaceful wilderness experience.
