Now is the perfect time to spend some time in paradise with Desoto Kayak Tours. And Emerson Point is truly paradise, so gather your friends, and get together for a day of fun on the water!
Kayaking is a great way to get away from the beach and check out one of our area’s hidden gems, the exotic mangrove tunnels. While kayaking the mangrove tunnels, you will see different types of mangroves, learn about their contribution to our unique ecosystem, and how they help to preserve the mainland. The mangroves provide a shady retreat during the leisurely little trip through them. The water is so clear you will see fish swimming beneath you, there will be tons of fiddler crabs climbing the mangroves, and perhaps you’ll even see a sea star or two.
In the open waters, you have the chance to encounter so much more ocean life. On your guided kayak tour you could encounter dolphins playing in the bay. They are always a joy to see! We could also see some manatee’s lounging around. There are usually plenty of snook and mullet jumping about. Native birds are pretty abundant, they love fishing in the waters of Emerson Point Preserve. We typically see pelicans, egrets, osprey, and even bald eagles. Of course we can’t guarantee that you will see each of these, but our expert guides will point them out for you along the way!
