Looking For Central Fl Kayak-Photo Advice

Hello, i'm MurrayH77 from Philadelphia area. I'm potentially planning to do some paddling in FL at the end of March, 2016 (first FL trip). Home base will be near Kissimmee. I plan to try and get over to
Clearwater too, as i want to see a home Philllies spring training game or two.

I'm primarily a flat water paddler, interested in taking a full-blown bird camera on the boat and getting to places where i can take good bird/wildlife photos. With the cheap gas of the moment, I would plan to bring my own kayak, a Carolina 14.5 with a rudder.

Places that have caught my eye so far are Merritt Island NWR kayak tour, Honeymoon Island causeway, and Hillsborough River downstream run. A couple of these might be with an outfitter, Honeymoon Island causeway i would just plan to drive up & launch. Hillsborough River did not pop up on searches, but someone had a set of bird pictures on this FPT site that were identified as Hillsborough River. when i saw photo of a limpkin in this photo set, i immediately put Hillsborough River near the top of the list.

Any advice / recommendations - i'll likely be staying in Celebration / Kissimmee area but will have the ability to overnight at arbitrary spots.

Thanx in advance,

M.
