Escape the madness 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 paddle board, visitors can experience the native mangrove channels and the beautiful calm and quiet blue waters of North Biscayne Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway. Weave through the mangrove forest and observe 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 can be seen swimming near.
You don’t have to be a paddling expert or have any prior experience. Hitting the water is easy and relaxing way to soak in some Florida sun and nature.
Visitors can either bring their own kayak, canoe or paddle board 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.
