"Spending time near the water slows down our heart rate and reduces stress hormones, boosting our mental health," according to Global News.
For an adventure that promises equal parts relaxation and excitement, take part in Jacksonville water sports. Apartments in Jacksonville are conveniently located near:
Jax Jet Ski Rentals, a small and family-owned business, prioritizes customer satisfaction. Launch from a quiet, private dock and experience the water in a whole new way with hourly jet ski rentals. For a more structured experience, join guides for dolphin tours--see dolphins up close!--or explore the local area on the island-hopping tour.
Don't forget to bring sunscreen, waterproof bags or cases for your personal items, towels, sunglasses, water, your ID, and a sense of adventure!
If you want to learn how to surf or stand up paddleboard, look no further than Jax Surf & Paddle. Instructors are ready to help you have the best possible experience "at any age, any stage." Learn the basics or refine your skills with private or group lessons. If you just want to rent a surfboard or paddleboard to see what you can do, of course, that is an option too.
Beginners should strongly consider testing out their skills with stand up paddleboarding (SUP). Most people can stay balanced on SUPs by standing tall with feet hip-width apart and looking ahead, not down at their feet. Jax Surf & Paddle offers flat water tours and eco-tours for those who want to see more of Jacksonville's marsh grasses, riverways, and intercoastal waterways.
Sign up for one of Adventure Kayak Florida's kayak tours and paddle the 60-acre freshwater lake in Hanna Park. The lake is calm and flat enough for beginners and home to a variety of wildlife and birds. Experience half-day tours, photography tours, or one-of-a-kind full moon tours. Full moon tours feature views of Downtown Jacksonville and the St. John's River cast in a moonlit glow.
Join our community of water sport enthusiasts. The apartments at Mirador & Stovall at River City are optimally located, nestled in between the St. John's River and the Atlantic Ocean. Contact us to schedule a tour.
