Mission Statement To create a wake, whose ripples provide our guests with a sense of wonder about the natural world, while minimizing our impact on the daily lives of the non-human neighbors whose home we share. Guided Kayak Ecotours All tours start with a short paddle instruction on land and are planned to go 'with' the current. There is a short break mid trip on a sandbar for snack and swim (in warm weather). Marsh tour Simpson Creek, a tidal stream that runs between Big Talbot and Little Talbot Island State Parks, part of the greater Timucuan Preserve Estuary. On our tour we paddle through Fort George estuary, a series of tributaries that wind through the marsh, creating what looks like the arteries of the land. The water twists and turns creating intimate canals for the resident wading birds, fishing osprey, and provides protection for newly hatched fingerlings. Kingsley Plantation tour Kingsley Plantation is located on Fort George Island, one of the jewels of the Timucuan Preserve. While exploring this unique island, you will learn the history that is woven into the fabrics of this landscape. Along our paddle, we will see many species of resident and migratory birds, such as roseate spoonbill, swallowtail kite, heron, egret, and osprey. Barhopping tour (that's Sandbars) The Bar Hopping tour begins as the tide is going out exposing many natural sandbars creating secluded white sandy beaches. Sunset tour Get a front row seat to one of the natures most spectacular shows, as the sun slips below the horizon line and the day fades to night. Relax with friends at the end of the day. A calmness comes over the marsh at sunset as the golden colors of sunset are cast over the water and grasses.

Jody Ray are founders and 'proud parents' of our company. After moving to Amelia Island in 1996 to escape the cold of New Hampshire, we quickly realized this area was perfect for kayaking. Amelia Island is surrounded by state and national parks. These protected, 'wild' lands are perfect for wildlife viewing and just getting away from it all. We also realized that these fragile environments need to be protected from human encroachment. The best way to accomplish this is to get folks to spend time in the environment and learn the stories of the critters that live there. Our mission is to create a wake, whose ripples provide our guests with a sense of wonder about the natural world, while minimizing our impact on the daily lives of the non-human neighbors whose home we share.
