Nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts and sportsmen will find much to appreciate on Florida’s Historic Coast. Get up close to dolphins and enjoy exploring the water onboard kayaks, Stand Up Paddleboards, surfboards or sailboats

With miles of protected water, and current and tidal flow to help in any direction, even the most hard-to-please paddlers will find St. Augustine one of the most kayak-friendly destinations in the United States.

There are plenty of eco-excursions to choose from in St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra Beach. Explore the waterways with Kayak St. Augustine, Ripple Effect Ecotours or on a Stand Up Paddleboard from Anastasia Watersports. Join Blue Water Adventures to drive your own unique horizontal catamaran. Get out on the water and enjoy dolphin tours and sunset sails with the family-friendly Red Boat Water Tours. You’ll glide over the shallow water habitats and ecosystems of the beautiful Saint John’s River in a custom built airboat at Sea Serpent Tours.
 
Along with the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal, the waters that surround Florida’s Historic Coast are part of the 60,000-acre Guana, Tolomato, Matanzas National Estuary Research Reserve—referred to by locals as the GTM. This estuary stretches from Ponte Vedra Beach south to Marineland and contains extensive salt marshes, oyster beds and maritime hammocks.
