If you just LOVE nature, and really getting out into the midst of it, then you might want to explore Calypso Kayaking - a mobile kayak and paddleboard outfitter where you can see the beautiful waters of Florida from a whole other angle!
Make sure you look all around you during your tours, because you will be experiencing some pretty amazing sights!
There are two departure points for the tours, and each area offers incredible and unique experiences. You might choose to take a trip through the thousand islands, where you will be guided through tiny channels overgrown by mangroves. These create a canopy or a tunnel through the islands, and really offers a once in a lifetime experience!
When you reach the open water, keep an eye out for the amazing species of birds that will be surrounding you, from the Osprey, Great Blue Heron, Snowy Egret, and White Pelican!
Also in the open waters, there are Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins and the endangered Manatee that you might be lucky enough to spot! Kids will always get a kick out of seeing these creatures in the wild!
Calypso Kayaking is not just about the water though - nope! Some tours include a short hike on the land, where you can explore some native plants. Always a learning experience!
If you don't want to take a tour, Calypso Kayaking also offer rentals too, so you can head on your own, and explore the area in your own time!
