Have you decorated your Christmas tree? Put up your lights? Baked your cookies and sent out your cards? If the answer is yes, then you’re ready for a new kind of holiday adventure – an exciting and beautiful kayak tour from Kayak Amelia. Christmastime is a great opportunity to go kayaking – the weather is perfect, and if you have people visiting during the holiday season, let’s face it, they want to be on the water. Kayaking is a sport that all ages can enjoy. Northeast Florida offers thousands of acres of tranquil inland marshes and secluded sandy beaches to explore on one of Kayak Amelia’s many guided kayaking or stand up paddle board Eco Tours.

All guided kayak tours are beginner friendly and are planned with the tide, to ensure a fun, safe, and relaxing adventure. Average tours are three hours long - pre-trip instruction, then about two hours of paddling with a break mid trip for a snack and swim on most tours. Professional naturalists and guides are guaranteed to dazzle you with their charming personalities, extensive knowledge of the eco system, and share stories of local history.

If you already know how to kayak, you can create your own adventure at Kayak Amelia in Talbot Islands State Park. They supply the kayak or canoe, PFDs, paddles, and maps. There is a wide array of sandy beaches where you can picnic and swim. Depending on the tide and weather, they will make suggestions on the most scenic, leisurely, and safest routes to take.
