meet you there! (239) 778-7418
Caxambas Park & Marina
This is the BEST place to rent a kayak. The area is surrounded
by barrier islands and sand bars only accessible by kayak and paddle board.
On every sand bar you can find sand dollars, conch shells, sea urchins
and more. It's a shellers paradise! While you are kayaking from sand bar
to sand bar and shelling, keep your eyes peeled for playful dolphins,
manatees and stingrays. The best time to visit this park is at low tide
as this allows the sand bars to be fully exposed. Even at high tide the
sand bars will still be exposed, so don't worry. We recommend renting
for 2-3 hours at the park. Directions

Capri Paddlecraft Park
This park is loaded with mangrove tunnels! Once you hit the
water you'll be kayaking through a beautiful estuary. The tunnels are
only 15 minutes away from the launch. Once you're in the tunnels, keep
you eyes peeled for mangrove tree crabs, raccoons and jumping mullet.
In the open bay you may see dolphins and manatees. There are no sand bars
or islands to get out of your kayak, so plan on being on the water. We
recommend kayaking or paddleboarding here for 2 hours. It's very easy
to get lost, so we recommend going on a kayak
if you really want to experience the mangrove tunnels. Directions
