Kayaking the Guana River Coastal Estuary – Kayaking & Eco Tours
Guana River Coastal Estuary was voted the “Best Place to Kayak” by Folio Weekly three years in a row. Located just north of historic St. Augustine, Guana Reserve is the 25th National Estuarine Research Reserve in the U.S. offering 60,000 acres of the pristine estuary to explore. This outing will be a great combination of time on the water and the opportunity to explore the magnificent eco-system along the banks in the State Park. Your guide is passionate about the area, and will share his vast knowledge with vigor! Included are sand dunes, salt marshes and tidal creeks, maritime hardwood hammock, freshwater depression marshes and a shell mound forest.
Beach Cruisin’ “Island Style”
Experience the Beach Lifestyle as we climb aboard our Classic Beach Cruiser bikes. We escape for a relaxing ride on the hard-packed wide beaches of Northeast Florida and the local backstreets of our unique oceanfront communities. We stop at the historic Casa Marina Hotel that had many famous guests like John D. Rockefeller, President Harry Truman, and Al Capone. A short walk along the Jacksonville Beach Pier and you will see what the locals are catching for dinner. We also stop for a behind the scenes tour of the oldest American Red Cross Volunteer Life Saving Corps originally founded in 1912. A cold beverage and a tasty snack at one of the eateries in Jacksonville Beach can be included in the tour. Join us and become part of our local popular culture known as “SALT LIFE”. (Comfortable clothing/bathing suits, shoes/flip flops, hats and sunglasses are recommended)
