Anastasia State Park Kayak Tours: Come explore the coastal estuary from the St. Augustine Lighthouse Park with the guides from Ripple Effect Ecotours that have been leading trips through Anastasia State Park for over 11 years!
Salt Run, with it's close proximity to the St. Augustine Inlet, has an abundance of marine life including the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin. Blue Heron, White and Glossy Ibis, Roseate Spoonbills, Wood Storks and many other birds fly a short distance to Salt Run from the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, which has the largest rookery in North Florida. This serene coastal lagoon is sheltered from the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean only by the majestic white quartz sand dunes. Enjoy only the sounds of the waves and birds just outside of historic downtown St. Augustine. Take a step back almost 500 years and enter the Oldest City via the original natural inlet. On the sunset tours we then watch the sunset over the historic St. Augustine Lighthouse! Reservations required. Cost is $50 per person.
