Nature on the Caloosahatchee

Come kayak down the blue-green waters of the Caloosahatchee River, and discover the subtle interconnectivity of the plants, animals, and natural features of the region. The town of Alva has deep-rooted historical connections with the fertile and beautiful Caloosahatchee River and its creeks. One of our kayak tours is the perfect way to get acquainted with the inner workings of nature in this region. This tour often includes nature education from your Florida Master Naturalist Guide.  You’ll have a chance sight several animals – most notably the rare bird the Limpkin. You will also kayak the twists and turns of the creeks surrounding the Caloosahatchee River.

GAEA Guides uses tandem kayaks that handle like a single if you are alone in one. We do this to limit the number of kayaks in the environment that may annoy the wildlife. We also do it because there is better communication between the guide and the clients if there are fewer kayaks. We only take a small group on each tour. The kayaks are sit-inside kayaks with comfortable seats and plenty of leg room.

Upon meeting at the appointed time we will sign in, go over some safety information and then get the equipment in the water. This takes approximately ½ hour. At the completion of the tour, we allow another ½ hour to get all the equipment put away. You will receive the directions to the launch site after making your reservations.
