"We've got more canoes, kayaks and SUPs than fingers and toes to count them," Captain Wendy explains. "Also, two sailboats, eleven pontoons––all rentable. The funny thing is, this business came from a big accident." She's referring to the company’s inception in 2002, when a devastating hurricane led a friend to sign his company’s single sailboat over to Wendy and her husband, Bruce. "We were in marketing––then, suddenly, we were in boating." More than 12 years later, Windsong Charters & Boat Rentals has flourished under the duo’s stewardship. The company now performs 200 weddings each year and equips a wide range of patrons to revel in the breathless joy of cutting through playful zephyrs and out across the water. Wendy and Bruce encourage fishing and bringing pets on boating voyages, and the two share stories to delight guests or calm champagne bottles propped next to brand-new yachts. As propellers hum to life and paddles make a gentle kissing sound against the surf, visitors scan the horizon for the variety of wildlife that slips along just below the surf's surface or comes wheeling out of tufts of cumulonimbus. "I wish the animals would give us their schedules,” Wendy says, “but, on a given day, you could see manatees, dolphins, stingrays, and lots of birds."
With an inventory of canoes and kayaks—as well as a choice launch point on the banks of the Santa Fe River—Santa Fe Canoe Outpost is a starting point for a wide range of aquatic day trips. There are adventures of varying length, from the 7-mile down-river trip to Rum Island to multi-day canoe camping trips to the furthest destination, 39 miles away. Gliding down the river, paddlers may spy some of Florida's famous springs, including the Poe, Devil's Eye, or Lilly, or can peer back at nocturnal wildlife on one of the monthly Full Moon trips. At the conclusion of each outing, a Canoe Outpost team member arrives to safely transport both guests and vessels back to home base.
While leisurely paddling along the Indian River, dolphins and manatees swim beside a kayak as a guide points out some of the 300 species of native birds soaring overhead. This is the kind of memorable experience that many customers have had during Florida's Adventures in Paradise Tours’ two- to four-hour tours of Cocoa Beach’s waterways. The experienced team at Florida's Adventures in Paradise Tours instructs future kayak captains on the basics before launching, so even those brand new to kayaking can partake in laid-back jaunts, which include stops at remote islands where guests can dip their toes in the sand and put seashells to their ears. Kayaking equipment and mermaid repellent are included, and sunset tours are also available.
Cocoa Beach locals know that it's rare to spot Bill Kowalik on dry land. The Puerto Rico–born seafarer is at home on the water, constantly surfing, kayaking, or leading tours across the Florida Space Coast. Bill’s as passionate about the environment as he is about watersports, enthusiastically exploring the area's diverse waterways while taking pains to leave the least impact on the protected waters. Along with his team of trained instructors, he leads individuals, groups, and families on kayak tours through lush mangroves and island channels, pointing out dolphins, manatees, and exotic birds.
