Sunrise in Florida is beautiful, but nothing beats seeing it from the water while going on a wildlife discovery adventure. It’s a well known fact the wildlife is most active in the early hours of the day, so that’s when we paddle!
Watch for sea turtles, manatees, bottle nose dolphins, sting rays, sea hares, roseate spoonbills, wood storks and more! Depending on the tide, we’ll either explore the Matanzas River to Moss Point, which is perfect for dolphins and spoonbills, or we’ll paddle through the calm waters on the edge of the Moses Creek Conservation Area, watching for sea turtles, manatees and large Florida birds.
Departure: 6:30 am EST
Location: goes out of Butler Park West on Anastasia Island. *Paddle Your State is not responsible for lost or stolen goods or damage to property parked in relation to tours.
Location 2: departing from River to Sea Park, we’ll explore Pellicer Creek and the Guana Tolomato Matanzas Research Reserve.
Depending on tides and interest, starting location may vary between either location.
