The Best Kayaking Tours Near Jacksonville

Enjoy Kayaking Tours Near Jacksonville

For a fun day on the water, enjoy a guided kayak tour. Along the way, you'll see spectacular scenery, learn about local history, and more. When you're ready to paddle, the best places for kayaking tours near our apartments in Jacksonville include:

Kayak Amelia 

When Ray and Jody Hetchka tired of shoveling the New Hampshire snow, they relocated to Florida. As trained kayaking guides, they opened Kayak Amelia to share their love of the water and the outdoors. The nature tours begin with a short paddle lesson on land. Once in the water, the naturalists will cover an array of fun topics like wildlife, Jacksonville history, and the salt marsh ecosystem. 

Adventure Kayak Florida 

Dennis Thompson is a lifelong resident of Jacksonville. He proudly owns Adventure Kayak Florida and enjoys introducing people to the outdoors. The guided half-day tours run between two and three hours. They're offered at several locations around town, and the guide will share fun stories and point out the wading birds and birds of prey you'll see during your adventure.  Additionally, Adventure Kayak Florida also provides kayak and canoe rentals for use on Hanna Park's 60-acre freshwater lake. The lake boasts calm waters, making it the perfect destination for those just learning to paddle. 

St. Augustine Eco Tours 

At St. Augustine Eco Tours, you'll find one of the "most unique and user-friendly kayak tours in the Southeast." Before getting started, you'll begin with kayak-specific stretching and learn how to best use your paddle. During the trip, the guide will take you under the Bridge of Lions, past a Spanish fort, and much more. 

For another way to spend time outdoors, explore the Jacksonville Zoo, where you'll see animals from around the world. Finally, to call The Carlton at Bartram Park home, please contact us. Our leasing team will offer a tour so you can discover our apartments in Jacksonville firsthand.
