This is our most popular area for guided kayak tours of Amelia Island thanks to its inland calm waters. The Eco-Easy guided kayak tour will take you through beautiful forested wetlands teeming with native wildlife. You may experience turtles, alligators, red-headed woodpeckers, hawks, and possibly even a pirate or two!


Your relaxing 2-hour paddle will bring you through the black water lined by cypress trees, sweet gum trees, pine trees, Spanish moss, pickerelweed, duck potato, wild azalea, and so much more.  You will enjoy  your tour on this fresh water creek with the characteristic black or 'stained' water that comes from tannic acid formed as plants decay.  This creates a transparent, acidic water that reflects the scenery around it like a mirror.  This makes for an amazing eco tour and beautiful photographic opportunities.

Because this waterway is protected from the direct coastal elements, it is much more calm, and makes the ideal choice for all skill level of paddlers. Being only minutes from Amelia Island, it makes for the perfect guided kayak tour adventure for all groups!
