Cost is $180 for adults and $150 for children under 12.

The journey will begin as guests paddle through the mangroves and head into the calm blue waters of Biscayne Bay. Along the way, Lauren will share interesting facts about Florida’s ecosystem. Upon arrival to Sandspur Island, an hour’s paddle ride away, guests can swim, relax, and enjoy a light snack. From there, kayakers will paddle through a beautiful mangrove creek before returning to the Outdoor Center. The private kayak tour is offered daily starting at 10am. Cost is $45 for adults and $20 for children 12 and under.
