Guided Eco Tours
Come explore the beauty of North Florida in one of the most unique ways - by water. We offer guided tours in the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (GTMNERR) as well as specialty tours in other locations in NE Florida. All of our guides are ACA Certified and experienced kayakers and stand up paddleboarders.
The Guana Reserve is one of the few Estuarine Reserves in the country. It spreads over 73,352 acres of Duval County, St. John's County, Flager County and is home to over 358 bird, 303 fish, and 580 plant species. This makes Guana the ideal place for kayakers and wildlife enthusiasts alike.
Scheduled tours can be found on the Calendar page. For booking, please call North Guana Outpost at 904-373-0306 or come by the shop to sign up. If you do not see a date that works within your schedule and have at least 3 people please give us a call with the date in mind and we will schedule a guide.
We also offer private tours and private & group lessons.
