Egans Creek Kayak Tour!

The Egans Creek Kayak Tour is in an estuary of the Amelia River; its waterway and the Egans Creek Greenway occupy 300 acres of protected wetlands in central Amelia Island. A favorite kayaking spot, the Egans Creek Kayak Tour engages paddlers in a true tidal marsh experience rich in marine life, featuring aquatic grasses and sedges and other native plants, animals, birds, and reptiles. A tidal marsh is a place where fresh water and sea water meet, its environment is driven by coastal tides. This means a slight current for paddlers, and also a breathtaking experience for those interested in wildlife viewing.

Passing the Lighthouse on the Egans Creek Kayak Tour!

Where salt water vegetation flourishes, so do fiddler crabs, snails, and small fish, all providing food for wading birds such as herons, egrets, wood storks, and the extraordinary roseate spoonbill, a pink wading species with a spoon-shaped bill that allows it to sift through mud while feeding. Participants can expect to see many varieties of exotic birds, along with alligators, otters, turtles, snakes, and along the shoreline, perhaps a raccoon or bobcat.

Our Egans Creek Kayak Tour is fun for the Whole Family!

Egans Creek Kayak Tour will take you past the Amelia Island Lighthouse, the state’s oldest, built in 1838 during the Territorial period, even before Florida was a state. It is the only lighthouse in Florida that has survived without any major rebuilding, a beacon that guided ships safely to the port of Fernandina along the Amelia River. It is considered one of Amelia Island’s most visible and beloved historic sites.

Participants should meet at 1620 North 14th Street. Bring sunscreen, water and snacks. Dress appropriately for the weather, and be prepared to get a little wet.
