Kayaking at Don Pedro Island provides a unique experience for both experienced and beginner kayakers and paddle-boarders.

On your journey by kayak to the island, you will pass through the enchanting mangrove forest. The trip will take you back in time as you meander through the shallow channels. Keep a look out for manatees, turtles, birds and other wildlife, as they are often found in the waters and trees off the island.

Pull your kayak up to Don Pedro Island and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and sea breeze. Share a picnic under the shaded pavilion or search for shells along the gulf side of the island. Don Pedro Island State Park is a paradise for those looking to get away from it all and enjoy the Real Florida.
