About the Tours
Eco-Easy Guided Kayak Tours
This is the most popular area for guided kayak tours of Amelia Island thanks to its inland calm waters. The Eco- Easy guided kayak tour will take you through beautiful forested wetlands teeming with native wildlife. You may experience turtles, alligators, red-headed woodpeckers, hawks, and possibly even a pirate or two! The tour is perfect for just about any age or skill level, and will show you an amazing slice of Florida’s incredible beauty.
Your relaxing 2-hour paddle will bring you through the black water lined by cypress trees, sweet gum trees, pine trees, Spanish moss, arrowroot, wild azalea, and so much more. You will enjoy your tour on this fresh water creek with the characteristic black or ‘stained’ water that comes from tannic acid formed as plants decay. This creates a transparent, acidic water that reflects the scenery around it like a mirror. This makes for an amazing eco tour and beautiful photographic opportunities.

The Sea Life Adventure kayak tour will also bring you by Florida’s oldest lighthouse, making for amazing photographic opportunities.
Because this tour must be done in conjunction with high tide as well as other weather-related factors, this adventure is not available on a daily basis, but it is worth the wait! Also watch for exciting gorgeous sunset paddles done here!
