School is out and it's time to play! Experience the best kayaking ecotours in Northeast Florida, made possible by our partnership with Marineland Dolphin Adventure and the University of Florida’s Whitney Lab for Marine Bioscience. This partnership gives us unique access to the southern boundary of the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve, the perfect location for kayaking tours. Don’t miss this opportunity to visit the Atlantic bottlenose dolphins’ natural habitat in the Matanzas River Estuary, then get up close with these amazing mammals at Marineland Dolphin Adventure! You will fall in love with this biologically rich area, often described as “the cornerstone behind the nomination of the Matanzas River as the 25th National Estuarine Research Reserve of the United States.
Join our master naturalist guides for a morning kayak trip and get an intimate glimpse at a pristine estuary. Paddle in and out of mangrove tidal creeks as birds fly overhead and fish jump in front of your kayak. Observe native flora and fauna in their local habitats and learn why biodiversity is important for the health of our waterways and coastlines.
