Join us on an adventure on a guided Kayak Eco-Tour from Don Pedro Island State Park (land base) through the pristine mangrove tunnel and on to Don Pedro Island. You will learn about local marine life and environment as we paddle over to the island. Dolphins and Manatees frequent these waters, so be on the lookout. There will be a 30 minute stop over on the island and you are welcome to bring a snack/bagged lunch and water. (BIPS does not provide food/drinks). You’ll have time to explore, search for seashells, and maybe even take in a swim.
