Paddle Or Pedal On A Kayak Tour

Kayaking is an excellent alternative to exploring by land. It's a low impact excursion atop tranquil waters where you can see exotic wildlife and take in the crisp air.

Amelia Island Kayak Excursions is located on Amelia Island and is owned and operated by the Bullington family, one of the most hospitable families you will meet on the island. Sure to be a serendipitous encounter, count yourself fortunate if you can experience the beauty of Amelia Island's estuaries and inland waters while being guided by Mark, Amber or Aaron. Mark, the patriarch of the family, is a true southern gentleman with a passion for nature and a remarkable knowledge of the island and its wildlife.

Your guided tour can be experienced in solo or tandem kayaks, or you have the option of kayaking hands-free with Hobie pedals - this is an excellent alternative to the traditional kayak paddle. It can make for an easier tour and is ideal for longer kayak excursions. The tours offer some of the best shore bird watching around, with opportunities to see herons, roseate spoonbills, egrets, marsh hens, and cormorants, just to name a few.

Amelia Island Kayak Excursions are a true eco adventure. Contact the Bullingtons today to reserve your kayak tour.

Also check out Kayak Amelia, nestled onto the marsh south of Amelia Island with an office conveniently located in Historic Downtown Fernandina Beach. Kayak Amelia is known for Stand-Up Paddleboard Yoga (SUPY), challenging the balance and often, literally, immersion.
