St. Augustine Eco Tours offers one of the most unique and user friendly kayak tours in the Southeast. Our permanent location puts us in the heart of Historic Downtown St. Augustine. What better spot to experience the water in the way people did centuries ago. We have a dedicated slip at the city marina where a specialized kayak dock makes getting in and out of the kayaks the easiest part of the trip. Extremely stable tandem kayaks with rudders make steering a breeze for beginners or the more experienced paddler.
No experience is necessary for our 2 hour guided nature tour. This is the perfect combination of instruction and nature! A brief paddling clinic will get you comfortable with your paddle and kayak. Before getting into the boats, your guide will instruct you on the basics of how to hold and use your paddle in the most efficient way. You'll do a little kayak-specific stretching while you get comfortable with the equipment on land and learn our safety protocol. Then, your guide will take you on a paddle under the Bridge of Lions, past the Spanish fort and into the saltwater marshes of the historic mission grounds.
