Spend a morning or afternoon kayaking the mangrove forests and tidal flats around Cape Canaveral. Departing from within walking distance of the cruise port, the tour is suitable for both experienced kayakers and first-timers—experienced guides are available the entire trip. Follow the calm, protected waters around the shoreline, keeping your eyes peeled for manatees, dolphins, otters, and many species of birds along the way.

Our fully guided kayak tour is 2 hours of wild exploration along the calm inshore backwaters of the famous Cocoa Beach Thousand Islands Marine Sanctuary. We'll paddle along mangrove shorelines in search of curious manatee and friendly dolphin and surely see a variety of other wildlife including raptors, shorebirds, otters, and shallow water creatures like crabs, stingrays, and jumping fish!
