Beneath the mounted bass and 7-foot standing black bear in the shop's interior, an array of gear inspires a multitude of outdoor adventures, from snaring largemouth bass and catfish to sneaking up on squirrels and demanding your Nutter Butters back.

The Sea & Sky Krucker Cygnet, the aircraft of choice at Duckwing Triking, may resemble a hang-glider with a motor, but a flight in it is more than just gliding about in the breeze. Called a "trike" because of its three wheels, it's an amphibian vehicle, meaning it can take off from land or water and it hatches from aquatic larva instead of being made in a factory. The pilots at Duckwing love teaching others about this unusual craft, which is why every flight is a lesson instead of just a ride-along. Passengers get a chance to take the controls and soar above Jacksonville and the Saint Johns River.

American Pro Diving Center helps visitors and locals explore the clear, teeming waters of Florida with year-round manatee tours and diving adventures. All-equipment-included manatee snorkel tours in Crystal River or winter expeditions to Homosassa River let snorkelers rub flippers with the rivers' large population of resident sea cows. In-water guides keep the experience safe and fun for both manatees and people, and snorkelers swim in between the gentle creatures, giving them a gentle pat or a canister of whisker wax.

For deeper subterranean adventures, the center offers classes that range from Discover Scuba Diving to full PADI open-water certification, in addition to specialty courses on rescue and wreck diving. Divers can plunge into one of seven diving excursions, including night dives in Rainbow River or mermaid line dancing in the lost city of Atlantis.
