St Augustine Dolphin Tours
Join us for our family and beginner friendly kayaking tours in St Augustine. Our St Augustine dolphin tours are a family and beginner friendly nature/Eco adventure. Experience is not necessary for our kayak tours. Enjoy beautiful views of the St Augustine Lighthouse and the Anastasia State Park, while interacting with some of St Augustine’s wild local natives. After a friendly and informative tutorial paddle clinic, your UF certified naturalist guide will fit you with a kayak and gear, and a wonderful kayak experience.
Our dolphin tours begins at the St Augustine Lighthouse Park located at 442 Ocean Vista Ave. St Augustine. See the beautiful Anastasia State Park by way of the Salt Run, and enjoy the scenic maritime hammocks and ancient sand dunes. The Salt Run is the easiest and most protected area for a kayak tour in St Augustine, and although there is no guarantee, Dolphins, Stingrays, Sea Turtles, Manatees and a vast array of birds may all be seen here. Mornings are best to experience wildlife and calm winds and waters. What a great way to start the day!
