We were looking for a different activity during a brief stay in Cocoa Beach and kayaking seemed to fill the bill. It got us on (not in!) the water in the “Thousand Islands” Conservation Area. This site is made up of islands in the Indian...More

This is a great inexpensive way to explore the area and learn about the wildlife. We enjoyed our experience and felt safe the whole time. Ric looks for wildlife and provides educational info on the region. Well worth the time.

Awesome informative adventure! My 15 year old daughter's favorite parts were seeing a baby manatee right next to our kayak and exploring in the mangrove trees. Ric's encyclopedic knowledge of the flora and fauna made the trip fun and educational. Thumbs up!
