    Overview

    Our Egan’s Creek Kayak Tour is in an estuary of the Amelia River; its waterway and the Egans Creek Greenway occupy 300 acres of protected wetlands in central Amelia Island. A favorite kayaking spot, the Egans Creek Kayak Tour engages paddlers in a true tidal marsh experience rich in marine life, featuring aquatic grasses, sedges, other native plants, animals, birds, and reptiles. A tidal marsh is a place where fresh water and sea water meet, its environment is driven by coastal tides. This means a nice helpful current for paddlers, and also a breathtaking experience for those interested in wildlife viewing.

    Where salt water vegetation flourishes, so do fiddler crabs, snails, and small fish, all providing food for wading birds such as herons, egrets, wood storks, and the extraordinary roseate spoonbill, a pink wading species with a spoon-shaped bill that allows it to sift through mud while feeding. Participants can expect to see many varieties of  birds and wildlife as we paddle through the marshlands explore the paddle trails next the Fort Clinch State Park.

    The Egan’s Creek Kayak Tour will take you past the Amelia Island Lighthouse, the state’s oldest, built in 1838 during the Territorial period, even before Florida was a state. It is the only lighthouse in Florida that has survived without any major rebuilding, a beacon that guided ships safely to the port of Fernandina along the Amelia River. It is considered one of Amelia Island’s most visible and beloved historic sites.

    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.
