↠ ABOUT THE TOUR ↞

This 2.5 hour kayaking in Miami guided tour starts at East Greynolds Park and we’ll paddle through some towering mangrove tunnels in search of local wildlife and marine life. As you exit the mangrove tunnels, you’ll enter a maze of mangroves which is the perfect sanctuary for fish, rays, and more. The shallow waters are great for seeing through the kayak in search of wildlife!

Mangroves are a group of salt-tolerant trees and shrubs that grow in coastal areas around the world, including in Miami, Florida. Mangroves play an important role in the ecosystem by providing habitat for a wide variety of wildlife and helping to protect coastlines from erosion. In Miami, mangroves can be found along the Biscayne Bay and other coastal areas.

There are three main species of mangroves found in Miami: red mangroves, black mangroves, and white mangroves. Red mangroves, which are the most commonly found species in Miami, have prop roots that help to stabilize the soil and protect the coast from erosion. Black mangroves, on the other hand, have pneumatophores, or “breathing roots,” that stick out of the soil and allow the trees to take in oxygen in the low-oxygen environment of the mangrove swamp. White mangroves, the least common species in Miami, are typically found in areas with less salt. Be on the lookout while kayaking in Miami!

Manatees, also known as sea cows, can be found in the waters around Miami, particularly in the Biscayne Bay and along the coast of Florida. These gentle creatures are an important part of the ecosystem, and are protected under the Endangered Species Act. Manatees are herbivorous and feed on aquatic plants, and are often seen in shallow, warm waters. They are particularly susceptible to harm from human activities such as boat strikes and habitat destruction, and conservation efforts are in place to protect them.

On your Miami kayak, you’ll also see a diverse array of bird life, with over 400 species of birds having been recorded in the area. Oleta Park and the Biscayne Bay are particularly popular spots for bird watching, as they provide habitat for a wide variety of birds, including wading birds, shorebirds, and waterfowl. The area is also home to many migratory birds that pass through on their way to other parts of the country, making it a popular spot for birders. Some of the most notable bird species found in Miami include the Wood Stork, the Reddish Egret and the Great Egret.

Be on the lookout for manatees, many species of birds, fish, rays, iguanas, and more!

This relaxing paddle is great for all skill levels and offers some amazing photo opportunities surrounded by nature.

Testimonial Kayak Icon
The tour + guide was amazing!

Lilli was our tour guide and she was amazing! Loved her go-with-the-flow, sweet, and outgoing personality! The tour itself was so cool. It was just us three (my partner, me, and Lilli), and we kayaked in open waters and in the mangroves - going through trees and seeing fish and oysters ‘spitting’ and tree crabs (to which I learned are very sweet and harmless). She provided us with a water bag for our phones and she took pictures of us from her kayak too, and air dropped them to us at the end! Definitely a highlight of our trip and would do it again.
