Kayaking Ecotours at Sunset

Join us for an eco-adventure at sunset! Your guide will lead you through beautiful waterways as swirls of color paint the changing sky. Gliding along in your lighted-firefly kayak, keep your eyes peeled for playful dolphins, jumping fish and beautiful wading birds as your guide explains the importance and vitality of this ecosystem and all who live within it.

In our continuing effort to provide the best eco-educational kayaking experiences in Northeast Florida, Ripple Effect Ecotours has now partnered with Marineland Dolphin Adventure and the University of Florida’s Whitney Lab for Marine Bioscience. This new partnership combines an incredible foundation in research, education, conservation, and natural interpretation with unique access to the southern boundary of the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (GTM-NERR). This is the perfect central location to explore the Jordon and Mellon Island Sites that are part of Faver-Dykes State Park, The Princess Place Preserve, and the Pellicer Creek Aquatic Preserve. This biologically rich area has been described as “the cornerstone behind the nomination of the Matanzas River as the 25th National Estuarine Research Reserve of the United States”. This is where the Matanzas Inlet, one of the only natural inlets on the east coast of Florida, collides with one of the most pristine, undeveloped streams in Florida, The Pellicer Creek. We are excited to offer comprehensive ecological and cultural kayak tours in this beautiful coastal system.

No kayaking experience is necessary, and this tour is suitable for ages 10 and up.

Please keep in mind that tour start times change based on the season.
