Kayaking in Jacksonville

The best view of Jacksonville is from the water! Jax offers plenty of secret waterway spots that can only be accessed by kayak or canoe.

Bring the kayak or rent one here. Guided kayak tours offer a variety of options for fitness, ecotourism, romance, and fishing. Choose from ocean kayaking, where you can catch a glimpse of dolphins, sea turtles, and cast a reel. Or glide through the exotic wilderness of Jacksonville’s surrounding creeks, rivers, and marshes on an eco-tour. For a different view of Downtown Jax, try an urban kayaking excursion on the St. Johns River with high-rise buildings and bridges as your backdrop.
