Kayak the Scenic Waterways of Florida
- Although this topic in itself is vague. Kayaking in Florida may make you choose among variety of options. The following are some of the kayaking spot all over Florida depending on the region you are in the state:
o Palm Beach County
- Considered by some as the best in south Florida, kayaking in this region is best experienced at the Loxahatchee River. The cypress trees and lush ferns and air plants create a magical and peaceful environment. The three-hour highly scenic trip is a shady, jungly trail along a narrow, twisting river.
- Taking you through wet prairies, sawgrass marshes and tree islands, you are probably kayaking on a trail at the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge.
- Not straying far from the civilization, kayaking at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in North Palm Beach shows a spectacular scenery and bird-life.
- In another destination in the MacArthur Park area is kayaking to Peanut Island. Peanut Island has a lot to offer — snorkeling, the beaches and the history, which includes the Kennedy Bunker.
o Broward County
- Located in John Lloyd State Park in Dania Beach, Broward’s best and most natural kayak trail is Whiskey Creek.
- An urban waterway that circling Wilton Manors, Middle River in Fort Lauderdale is one of Fort Lauderdale’s most popular kayak outings. It’s largely a view of people’s pools and landscaping, with an occasional heron, manatee or iguana sighting.
- Running through the heart of the city is Fort Lauderdale’s most historic river is the, New River. The canals along Las Olas Boulevard and on the south side of the New River, along Rio Vista and the Tarpon River, offer views of mansions, yachts and lush landscaping.
- Offering extensive, peaceful mangrove areas for paddling is a Broward County park named West Lake. Being the largest remaining mangrove ecosystem in the 85-mile urbanized coast from Miami Beach to West Palm Beach, West Lake attracts lots of bird life.
o Miami Dade County
- In the middle of the city at Oleta River State Park in North Miami, you will find a good kayak trail. An outfitter makes it easy for visitors to get on the water.
- Not requiring a trail at all similar to kayaking off the beach, you will find similar experience in Biscayne Bay. There are many appealing places to park and launch a kayak along the Rickenbacker Causeway leading to Key Biscayne. This kayak trip can involve visiting an active bird rookery or circling Chicken Key.
