Excitement, Beauty and More

HOBIE MIRAGE KAYAK PEDAL TOUR

 

Our Hobie Mirage Kayak Pedal Tour can leave from Rookery Bay, Wiggins Pass, or the Capri Paddle Park. Since this tour is affected by wind and tides, allow our guide to assist you in choosing the perfect launch spot so all you have to do is enjoy the beauty and wonders of the natural environment!  As you book your tour, pick from your choice of single or double; both being stable, “pedal-style” kayaks. You’ll take a leisurely pedal into the captivating, primitive, meandering mangrove trail wilderness. You will learn about a forest of trees that grows directly from the saltwater sea floor. Your skilled, experienced guide will explain why a thriving mangrove estuary is so important to protecting the inland environment and to supporting so many species of wildlife in the open sea.

 

While we can never guarantee appearances of specific animals, paddlers typically can encounter dolphins, ospreys, ibises, terns, pelicans, cormorants, herons, egrets, eagles, rays, sea stars, live conchs, sea turtles, many species of fish and even manatees!

$15 off, per child

All kids (ages 4-12, greater than 50 lbs) can receive a discount of $15 off if they ride or pedal in the front seat of a tandem Mirage kayak! An adult must pedal in the back or stern seat.

Recommended Safety Tips

Nautical Charts & Compass

Are strongly recommended for all routes. Do not rely entirely on GPS units.

Weather

Weather conditions change rapidly in the summer. Be prepared for intense sun, rain, and strong winds. Be prepared for lightning; do not stay in open water during storms, move near land staying low in your boat.

Wind/Tides

Take a tide chart and check conditions before you depart. Carry a weather radio if possible.

Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes and no-see-ums can be numerous and aggressive. Insect repellent, bug jackets, or long pants and long sleeved shirts are recommended.

Raccoons

Raccoons will do nearly anything to get food and water. Store both in hard sided containers or aboard a boat.

Water

One gallon per person per day is the minimum recommendation. No fresh water is available.

Preservation

Plants, animals and artifacts are protected in the national park. Collecting is prohibited.

Be realistic

Tides and winds can make paddling difficult. Most experienced paddlers plan to travel between 8-12 miles per day. If this is your first trip, choose a short trip and travel well marked routes.

Be Prepared

Boating in Everglades National Park is challenging. Safely exploring this area requires the ability to “read the water”, as the shallow areas are not usually marked. Knowing the draft (depth) and limits of your boat is critical, as is the ability to read and utilize nautical charts.
