Mangrove Mystery Tour

Trip Overview

This daily 90-minute tour seeks out sea turtle and manatee sightings and explores the local mangrove-lined waterways of the lower Loxahatchee River and Indian River Lagoon. You can choose to paddle a one-person kayak, two-person-kayak, or paddle board.

Depending on the tide and the weather, we take you on a trip, passing by the Jupiter Lighthouse, to Sawfish Bay which holds two beautiful mangrove islands perfect for bird watching, or on an adventure to the Indian River Lagoon, the most bio-diverse estuary in the United States. All skill levels and ages welcome, your guide will give you basic paddle and safety instruction!
