Destinations

Crystal River, Florida

We'll enjoy a 2-night stay in a secluded private residence that accommodates up to 12 guests, situated right along the Withlacoochee River. This river is not only recognized as a Florida Outstanding Waterway but also ranks among the state's lengthiest and most picturesque kayaking routes. Since February falls within the prime season for manatee sightings, you can anticipate encountering these gentle giants. Additionally, launching our kayaks from the backyard, we'll be on the lookout for playful otters, while your guide will identify extraordinary bird species that grace our kayaking adventure on the Withlacoochee River and Lake Rousseau.

Sugarloaf Key, Florida

The Florida Keys holds a special place in your kayak guide's heart, as it served as her previous stomping grounds for more than 5 years. During this time, she worked as a kayak guide, a natural history expert, a wildlife biologist, and an environmental specialist. For our upcoming adventure, we'll be spending 3 nights at the Bungalows at Sugarloaf Beach, where we've secured two luxurious oceanfront homes. This splendid property encompasses 10 acres of beachfront paradise, complete with two pools featuring cascading waterfalls, a swim-up bar, and a relaxing hot tub for your enjoyment.

Cocoa Beach, Florida

A single night spent in this extraordinary beachfront residence may leave you wanting for more. This mansion boasts breathtaking ocean vistas and offers direct access to the gorgeous sandy beach. The property serves as an idyllic haven, seamlessly blending serenity, nature, entertainment, and relaxation.

During our adventure, we'll set out on a kayaking expedition into the Thousand Islands Conservation Area. Here, we'll venture through enchanting mangrove tunnels, keeping a keen eye out for native wildlife such as dolphins and manatees.
