Want to learn about the environment while at the same time getting a dose of Jacksonville's most important history? Hop on this kayak eco-tour of Kingsley Plantation on Fort George Island!
The environmental part takes place with your approach paddle. As you move tranquilly through calm waters, you'll see many species of resident and migratory birds, including Roseate Spoonbills, Swallow-tailed Kites, Herons, Egrets, and Ospreys. And those are just our aviary friends -- there are also Dolphins, Manatees, Eagle Rays and more!
But the true gem of this tour -- the facet you can't experience anywhere else -- is the tour of Kingsley Plantation. This part of Southern History deserves somber contemplation. Your tour guide will properly contextualize the experience, while still keeping the tour interesting and informative.
If you want to get a real sense of the South, and the duality of the Southern Thing, in all of its complexity -- the glory and the shame -- this is the tour for you.
