Most routes include passing through Colohatchee Nature Park, a 9.3 acres (38,000 m2) recreational facility complete with a boardwalk for nature observation, a dog park, and a boat ramp for watercraft entry.
We initially stopped here and walked around, but Founder Brian Galton stumbled upon a secret entrance through a narrow Lagoon and now we paddle right into the middle of the park unless Tides are too low.  It is truly amazing as you will be surrounded 360 degrees by natural mangroves with a lush jungle environment!  This is the perfect photo opportunity to show everyone something that only our Guest get to see.
Everyday brings new site and you never know when you may see a Manatee or Sea Turtles wondering the area.  Our Tours are customized each time, so whether you are a beginner wanting an Instructor to assist along the way or experienced wanting to see mother nature show off her natural talents.
We will pass masses of Mangroves that home an abundance of Iguana and an incredible nesting for South Florida’s known tropical birds.  The area known as Wilton Manors is in a successful economic revitalization, with Wilton Drive, the city’s Arts and Entertainment District features an array of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues.  Only you get to see the area from a fish’s eye perspective.
DAILY at 10AM* and 1PM
