Amelia Island has serene beaches, but there’s also a backwater tributary that offers a glimpse into Old Florida splendor. Download the Adventure App right to your phone and enjoy a self-guided kayak tour through this wetland waterway while a UF naturalist details the history of the area through a provided speaker. Minimal water movement makes this a relaxed, low-impact experience for all skill levels. Keep your eyes peeled for the locals, too; mainly, gators, waterfowl, fish, and turtles.
  • Paddle at your own pace on this self-guided kayaking tour
  • Hear the area’s history via a certified naturalist and Bluetooth speaker
  • Bring only your phone and use their provided kayak, paddles, and speaker
  • No map, no problem, the paddling route is one-way up and back

    We saw two alligators swimming across the creek, multiple turtles, and a woodpecker and hawk. The scenery was beautiful.

    Great experience. My husband and I saw a HUGE alligator, not going to lie I was a bit freaked out when it jumped in the water but my husband couldn’t have been more excited to experience it. 10/10
    Beautiful ride

    We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and also spotted a few turtles. We are beginners and still maneuvered it well.
    Worth it!

    Recorrido fácil, pero no es fiel al anuncio
    ANA_S, Aug 2023
    El recorrido es bonito, cómodo y fácil, pero no avistamos más que 1 tortuga. En agosto pasamos mucho calor. Decir que la publicidad indicaba que había altavoces por los que escuchar una autoguía y también agua y merienda. De estas 3 cosas, solo tuvimos el agua.
