Guided Kayak EcoTours in New Smyrna Beach, Florida All Levels Welcome

Come and kayak miles of winding backwater, mangroves and untouched surroundings . . . a paddle on the Indian River Lagoon calls for an adventure that suits kayakers from novice to expert. Join Marine Discovery Center for a fascinating kayak trip with nature interpretation from a Florida Naturalist. Paddle around and over oyster beds and watch for the many birds that inhabit the area such as osprey, cormorants, herons and egrets. It is easy to see distinctive salt marsh along the creek, sea oxeye daisy, sea purslane, saltwort, glasswort, and spartina grass are prevalent. Paddling a kayak offers the best chance to move silently on our waters and learn about the importance of caring for this “cradle of the ocean”. Kayak instruction and nature interpretation are included with each tour. No experience required. (click on the images below to see the routes)
