Discover the Rich History of the Caloosahatchee River

Join us on the Creeks and Rivers Kayak Tour for an aquatic adventure you’re sure to remember! Guided by a Certified Florida Master Naturalist, you’re sure to learn all there is to know about this majestic land and the wonderful wildlife that calls it home. On this tour, you will paddle on the Caloosahatchee River and the wild creeks of the Caloosahatchee Creeks Preserve. You’ll learn tons of facts about the unique Mangrove Forest that you’ll be traversing.  You will visit a rookery that’s full of nesting birds from February to August.  With your guide’s help, you’ll gain unique insights into the history of the area and its many plants and animals.

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.
