We will begin our adventure in a remote location, that only few locals know of, with a safety briefing, and guidance on how to operate the kayaks efficiently. Once you are comfortable and ready to launch we will begin our adventure! For the next 2 hours we will explore the hidden mangroves of Harry Harris park where we can potentially spot: Manatees, Nurse Sharks, Pelicans, Cranes, Boobies, Herons, Turtles, Crabs, Jellies, Stingrays and countless fish species! We will be informing you of the different wildlife and plants we spot along the way, making the tour as informative as you would like. Depending on the weather we will be exiting the mangroves and entering the Atlantic Ocean. Here we will get to experience the flats along the shore where countless aquatic species can be spotted and even the occasional dolphins! We will end our tour back at Harry Harris Park where you will have access to the local restroom facilities. We will be happy to take pictures along the journey and if you have a Go Pro we can also mount it to our Kayaks for you.

Along the way we will experience the calm and shallow Mangroves which host fish, sharks, and Manatees as a nursery and a life source for the local fish species.
