Overview

The Loxahatchee River is a National Wild and Scenic River in Florida, but the stretch is more than seven miles (11 kilometers) long, and if you don’t know which way to go, it could get confusing. This Loxahatchee River Kayak Tour lets you cruise the river with a guide and a group in a kayak. Keep an eye out for animals hidden in the beautiful Cypress tree forest along the route.
  • Kayak down the Loxahatchee River through a Cypress forest canopy
  • See a variety of plants and animals, including gators and owls
  • Kayak rental is included for an easy day
  • A morning start time leaves you with the rest of the day for other activities

We had a private tour with Jennifer who was absolutely awesome!! She is super knowledgeable and fun to be around! She was kind enough to take pictures of all the close encounters we got to experience (Henry the alligator was literally an arms length away!) and we didn’t have to worry about accidentally dropping our phone in the river. Such a great experience for the kids and mom n dad a like. We would absolutely go again!

We had made it a must to go kayaking in Florida while we were on our Honeymoon. It was one of the best parts of our trip. Our tour guide Candice was so helpful with every part of our experience, she gave us so many details on how to enjoy the kayak experience the best way possible. I would definitely suggest to give this a try, you will not be disappointed.

Jennifer was so patient with my kids and assured that they felt comfortable before taking them on the water. When some of the kids changed their minds about going she gave me alternative suggestions like The Bush Wildlife Sanctuary while the rest of the group went on the river. Jennifer and the rest of the staff were nothing short of professional, informative, and friendly. I would without a doubt recommend this experience.
