    Overview

    Our Lofton Creek Kayak Tour is a calm, blackwater channel that meanders through the forested wetlands of Yulee, Florida. A primordial waterway, Lofton Creek features water that is dark in color, created by the tannins which leach into the water as vegetation decays. Replete with bald cypress, sweet gum, and rare flowers like pickerelweed and wild azaleas, this unique ecosystem is reminiscent of an old south bayou – brackish water teeming with unique plants, animals, and reptiles. Native Americans most likely fished these waters and cultivated the land for thousands of years before the Spanish, French, and English arrived in the mid-16th century.

    The Lofton Creek Kayak Tour is perfect for paddlers of any level, including children and beginners. It’s an intimate nature experience in which participants can expect to get up close and personal with nature. The terrestrial nature of the forest attracts pileated woodpeckers, red shoulder hawks, and the curious anhinga, sometimes referred to as the “water turkey.” The protected makeup of Lofton Creek means paddling here is “weather resistant” to tumultuous coastal conditions. A south-bound paddle on Lofton Creek provides picturesque marsh views, whereas a north-bound paddle is a more remote, forested experience. The Lofton Creek Kayak Tour is a guaranteed good time for everyone in your group!

    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.
