Paddling Trips

Oleta River State Park

Escape the traffic and noise of the city without leaving the city and explore Oleta River State Park's amazing natural habitat one paddle trip at a time.

Whether by kayak, canoe or paddleboard, visitors can experience native mangrove channels and the quiet blue waters of North Biscayne Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway. Weave through the mangrove forest and see native Florida vegetation and wildlife.

It is not unusual to see tiny hermit crabs in the mangroves. Beautiful native birds such as egrets and herons soar above. Sometimes, manatees or dolphins swim nearby.

You don’t have to be a paddling expert or have prior experience. Hitting the water is an easy and relaxing way to soak in some Florida sun and nature.  

Visitors can bring their own kayak, canoe or paddleboard or rent one from our concessionaire, BG Oleta River Outdoors.

BG Oleta River Outdoors also offers guided tours, such as sunset tours and full moon tours. For more information, visit BG Oleta River Outdoors.
