We provide all kayaking equipment including a kayak, personal flotation device, Werner paddle and dry bag. Guests are welcome to bring their own kayak and equipment, if desired. Whether you’re paddling in the blackwater of Lofton Creek or the crystalline springs of Ichetucknee, the nature and wildlife provides extraordinary photo opportunities for our guests. We encourage our guests to bring cameras and binoculars, and complimentary photos of our participants are provided, as well.
In addition, guests are encouraged to try their hands at surfing, cycling, beach combing, hiking, shark tooth hunting, or just relaxing on the beach.

Leave No Trace
We at Amelia Adventures are proud to practice Leave No Trace outdoor ethics.
This means that we encourage and teach our guests to take only photos and leave only footprints. But Leave No Trace is much more than that – it is a lifestyle that instills values and respect for our environment and our world.
We respect our local wildlife and ask that our guests enjoy observing animals, reptiles, and birds in their natural habitat, but always let them be, as nature intended.
