Make your own way to Melton Nelson Boat Ramp on State Road 200 in Yulee. Check in, and get set up with a kayak, a paddle, and a vest. The staff tells you some fun stories about legends of the area before giving you a route to take.
Because the waters in this area are usually pretty smooth, this kayak tour is perfect for most ages. It’s great for families, friends, or even riding solo. Your self-guided kayak tour of Amelia Island starts as you navigate the route given to you. Paddle through the water as you pass mangrove areas. Keep your eyes peeled for turtles, fish, and other wildlife that live in the area.
After you’ve completed the route, drop your kayak, vest, and paddle back at the part of the Melton Nelson Boat Ramp where you started. What you do the rest of the day is in your hands.
