We're sorry, this tour or activity is not available for selected date.
This 3-hour guided kayak tour starts at The Paddling Center at Shingle Creek, located directly off of Hwy 192. You will paddle on Shingle Creek, which are the headwaters of the Everglades.
After a safety briefing and instruction on kayaking, you will quickly enter an ecological gem that is rated one of the top paddling trails in Florida. Within 20 minutes you enter an old-growth cypress forest that is both serene and stunningly beautiful. Your guide will tell you all about the rich ecology and history of Shingle Creek.
Travel over 2 miles through this enchanted eco-system. Due to variations in water level, either because of recent rain events of lack thereof, you may need to exit your kayak and pull it over fallen trees, roots and other obstacles; sometimes for 20 plus yards! This 'adventure' component is not for the faint of heart, so being physically able and possessing moderate kayak skills is a must.
All guides have ACA Instructor certification, as well as First Aid, CPR & AED certification.
Adults and teenagers (13 years and older) can participate given they meet minimum strength and kayaking experience standards.
