Guided Kayak Tours
Kayak tours will be offered when the Florida Parks Service approves resumption of Park activities.
Savannas "goers" know that the best way to immerse oneself in the park is by kayak! Whether you're a water sport enthusiast, avid paddler, a beginner in kayaking, or simply a nature lover at heart, we would love to have you on a guided kayak tour. Our guides are trained in the ecology of the Savannas and have a diverse set of knowledge that they love to share with their groups. Have a question? These volunteers are top notch and will probably have an answer!
Tours begin Friday and Saturday mornings promptly at 8:30 a.m. During the winter season we often have Thursday, Sunday, and Monday morning and twice-a-month full-moon evening sunset tours. (Click on the Calendar button below to see the dates and times for the Savannas at Sunset guided kayak tours.) The Friends of Savannas Kayak Committee guides the tours for a $15 donation per person ($20 for the sunset tours) in addition to the park admission fee of $3 per car (exact cash only, credit cards are not accepted). The park admission fee is waived for annual Florida State Park Pass holders. Guests are asked to arrive at 8:00 a.m. for the morning tours; check the calendar for evening start times as they are variable for sunset. The donation covers the tour itself, an interpretive tour guide, basic instruction, and a kayak (solo or tandem), PFD (personal flotation device) life vest, and a paddle for the trip.
