Florida's Everglades - Sea Kayak Adventure

EXPLORING THE EVERGLADES
A biologically diverse and fascinating land, the Everglades enthrall all who journey there. Join us in this tropical backcountry, where freshwater and sea mix and mingle. While making our way from Flamingo to Everglade City, we will sea kayak across expansive bays to beautiful island beaches. A photographer's paradise, serious wilderness, teeming wildlife, and extreme sunsets. Open-water sea kayaking experience a must.

St. Marys River - Florida and Georgia

Beautiful hardwood forests frame the gentle curves of the St. Marys River. White sandbars are found at almost every bend, making camping an easy and enjoyable addition to your paddling trip. This tea-colored river rises in the Okefenokee Swamp at a place called Ellicott's Mound. The history of the St. Marys is an interesting one. Old sailing vessels called "tramps" would come hundreds of miles off their course to get fresh water from the river for drinking. Traders Hill was once a thriving trading post on the river and the county seat of Charlton County, Georgia. Wildlife is abundant along this wilderness trail, especially herons, egrets, osprey, and turtles. You might also look for bear or deer.

Paddling the Suwannee River

The Suwannee River is 207 miles in length within Florida; 280 miles long when including Big Alligator Creek in Georgia, which is a headwater tributary to the Suwannee. The river proper begins in the Okefenokee Swamp, a vast wetland wilderness in southeast Georgia and northeast Florida, and enters the Gulf of Mexico north of Cedar Key.

Withlacoochee River

The Withlacoochee River flows out of the Green Swamp in west central Florida. The canoe trail twists and bends through the sandhill area as it moves toward the northwest. Hardwood forests with an understory of cabbage palm and saw palmetto border the river. Further downstream the hills disappear as you paddle through lush swampland with cypress, gum and maple adorned with air plants. The overhanging limbs form a lacy canopy above you. Much of the canoe trail flows through the Withlacoochee State Forest, but there are scattered residential areas along the river. The variety of habitats offers incredible opportunities for nature study. Wildlife is abundant along the river. Deer,turkey,otter,andalligator are common. Wood duck, wood stork, white ibis,and anhinga can also be seen along the river.
