The Nocatee Kayak Launch, situated west of the Intracoastal Waterway at the base of Nocatee Parkway, offers fantastic views of the Tolomato River. Free on-site parking available.

Nocatee Landing is located at the southern trailhead of Nocatee Preserve. To access, go south three miles on Crosswater Parkway to a roundabout taking the eastern exit onto Nocatee Trail. The road is paved for 0.7 miles, then continues as a gravel road for another 1.2 miles to the Landing. Their open-air pavilion offers stunning views of the Tolomato River, with parking and restrooms located on-site.



The Tolomato River allows paddlers to experience this undeveloped natural environment. Paddle around Pine Island and the small tributaries into Deep Creek State Forest. Be mindful of the tidal changes along the waterway and know that the currents may be strong.
