$30 for a Guided Kayak Eco Tour for Two (Up to $60 Value)
Guided Kayak Eco Tours encompass a leisurely, two-hour paddle through Indian River Lagoon. A Florida Master Naturalist navigates kayakers through the flat, mangrove-framed waters while divulging the inner secrets of the biologically important ecosystem known as "the cradle of the ocean." The journey explores the forestation surrounding Brown's Bay, with guides making pit stops to point out the finer points of the plant and wildlife. Participants paddling the estuary regularly enjoy cameo appearances by manatees, turtles, and leaping mullet fish. Customers are supplied with life jackets and safety kits.
Marine Discovery Center
Local creek waters and river tributaries empty into an estuary along more than 150 miles of Florida's east coast. There, the freshwaters mix with salty Atlantic currents to form the Indian River Lagoon. The lagoon supports the highest levels of biodiversity found in any North American estuary. Preserving this delicate and species-rich ecosystem is the goal of Marine Discovery Center, a nonprofit corporation headquartered on the banks of the river. The MDC connects citizens to nature through kids’ summer camps, educational outreach, and frog-kissing booths. Kayak tours allow guests of all skill levels to navigate through the mangrove-framed waters of the lagoon in search of native birds, leaping mullet fish, and even Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.
