Perfect for beginners yet a gorgeous paddle for even the experienced kayaker, you will be guided through a forested black water tributary of Amelia Island, teeming with wildlife, flora and fauna. Experience easy, calm, lush botanical beauty while kayaking this popular black water creek (near Amelia Island) on this 2-hour guided tour.
