FMNP advanced master naturalist badge sm

Explore this amazing saltwater tidal creek and the adjacent fertile spartina marsh rich with sea life, game fish, fiddler crabs, and a coastal bird watching paradise!


Part of this waterway borders the protected 1100 acres of Fort Clinch State Park.  Enhance your scenic Fort Clinch visit with a guided kayak tour of this popular estuary of the Amelia River.   Your guided kayak tour will give you the opportunity to view and enjoy a number of coastal birds, including egrets, pelicans, roseate spoonbills (sometimes mistaken for flamingos), and more...  maybe even a bald eagle!  Be on the lookout for dolphins, manatees, crabs, turtles, and many other native wildlife.  The Sea Life Adventure kayak tour will also bring you by Florida's oldest lighthouse, making for amazing photographic opportunities.  

Because this tour must be done in conjunction with high tide as well as other weather-related factors, this adventure is not available on a daily basis, but it is worth the wait! Also watch for our exciting gorgeous sunset paddles done here!
