History meets modern day: “Before Lewis and Clark there was William Bartram. In March 1774, Bartram began his much-anticipated trip to Florida and the St. Johns River, first setting foot on Amelia Island. He traveled through Old Fernandina to Lord Egmont’s plantation and then continued to the St. Johns River documenting the region’s flora and fauna." Kayak part of the trail our guided tour through Egan's Creek, an estuary. Think of an estuary as simply an enormous nursery where numerous fish, shellfish, and other wildlife flourish. Into this estuary are inflows of sea water and fresh water, which provide high levels of nutrients for all resident flora and fauna. There are opportunities to see herons, roseate spoon bills, egrets, and cormorants. This environment also gives paddlers great views of marsh grasslands and an ever-changing skyline that are hard to beat.
