Salt Run Dolphin tour
THE BEAUTY BELOW THE LIGHTHOUSE
Family/beginner friendly! No experience necessary for the Salt Run Dolphin tour. After a friendly and informative tutorial your naturalist guide will fit you with your kayak, gear, and amazing experience. This eco tour begins at the St Augustine Lighthouse Park and goes down into the Beautiful Anastasia State Park.
Protected by Conch Island, the Salt Run Dolphin Tour is the easiest and most enjoyable paddle tour in St. Augustine. Although there is no guarantee, Dolphins, stingrays, Sea Turtles, Manatees and many amazing birds may all be seen here. Mornings are best to experience wildlife, calm winds, and calm waters.
The Run is a roughly 3 mile long lagoon located between between Anastasia Island and Conch Island. It is part of the Anastasia state park. On one end it opens up to the Matanzas inlet. On the other it closes deeper into the park. It is home to a wide variety of wildlife and scenic views, making it a must see place while visiting St. Augustine.
The Salt Run Dolphin Tour does not guarantee any animal sightings. While our tour guides know where to look these are wild animals. Wild bottlenose dolphins are here year round, however these wild animals choose where and when they are. Their beauty and intelligence is and always will be respected by Kayaking St. Augustine.
