Fresh Spirit Adventures’ seasoned guides escort kayakers of all ages and experience levels down the pristine shoreline of Amelia Island, listed among the nation’s top 10 islands in Conde Nast Traveler’s 2011 Readers’ Choice Awards. Solo or paired sailors can launch single or tandem kayaks from the Melting Point boat ramp at Lofton Creek, where guides demonstrate basic kayaking techniques and whale calls before leading groups past the island’s scenic beaches upon clear, tranquil waters. As parties paddle, they have the opportunity to catch glimpses of the island’s profusion of bird species, manatees, whales, sea turtles, and local residents surfing on driftwood.
