Come explore the unique beauty of north Florida by water.  Naturalists and guides from Guana Outpost will lead a kayak tour of the waterways in the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Resarch Reserve (GTMNERR). The Guana Reserve is spread over over 73,000 acres in three counties and is home to hundreds of bird, fish and plant species.  

The three-hour kayak tour will start with a short training session before lauching from either the North Guana Outpost location or the South Guana Outpost location depending on water conditions at the time.  Guana Outpost uses sit-on-top kayaks that are easy to get on and off even in deep water.  You may also bring your own kayak.

Wear comfortable clothes for paddling.  Wearing a hat and applying sunscreen is recommended as the Florida sunshine is strong.
