Excitement, Beauty and More

The Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is 110,00 acres of mostly undisturbed mangrove tunnels and forests and open water estuarine habitat! Your two and-a-half to three hour guided tour will introduce you to this spectacularly beautiful environment. Your tour guide is an experienced kayak instructor and naturalist. You will learn about the relationships between the mangroves and all the other wildlife that is wholly dependent on the mangroves in this extremely important natural habitat. While we cannot promise animal sightings for specific tours we often encounter dolphins, jumping fish, rays, brown pelicans, cormorants, white ibis, great egrets, snowy egrets, up to six different species of herons, ospreys, bald eagles, and more.

 

Tours leave at 9am or 12:30pm. Generally there is a better chance of a greater abundance of Wildlife being on the water earlier as less people on on the water disturbing them.

$15 off, per child

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