Find the KP Hole Park, then pay to get in. The boat ramp is on the side of the park. You can rent a kayak right there. The current is light, and the locals told me no rain has made river low. Paddle up less than two miles. Takes 60 or more minutes. Suit up (the water is cold). Drift back down. We actually snorkeled this time. Water is pretty shallow for diving, probably 5-20 feet at most. We saw an alligator while snorkeling. You can't take your dog in the park, but you can take him on the river (we had a triple kayak). There is a large parking area, and a place for RV's also.
