Far from the open ocean waves, lies the calm waters of the inner gulf, where mangrove estuaries invite exploration. Kayaking these wild waterways offers an unobtrusive and sublime means of navigating one of the most important of tropical ecosystems, the mangrove estuary. Mangroves provide spawning grounds for important local fisheries, as well as nesting sites for an impressive array of birds. They act as filters to surrounding ecosystems, both muddy rainwater, before it reaches coral reefs and inland habitats from rough seas. If you’d like to go on one of the kayak tours, we’re glad to refer you to the best kayak tour guides and help you to set everything up.
