If you’re looking for a golden outdoor activity in Florida to enjoy with your family, our manatee and dolphin kayaking tour in Haulover Canal is just the ticket. At Florida Adventurer, we are more than a bioluminescent kayaking tour company – we offer unforgettable and educational experiences that bring you closer to nature and self.
Here are 3 reasons why taking a dolphin tour is one of the best things to do in Florida:
An Spellbinding Experience
This tour is perfect for those who want to take a sneak peek into the exotic wildlife of Florida and get a taste of the relaxing shallow waters. In addition to dolphins and manatees, you may also come across herons, bald eagles, ospreys, Southern stingrays, brown pelicans, and much more.
Our tour guides enjoy filling the kayakers in with details about every animal they encounter, including its lifestyle and surrounding habitats. It’s important to understand that these wild creatures need to be respected and protected – you are not supposed to “pursue” dolphins unless of course, they decide to approach you!
Enjoy the Teamwork
At Florida Adventurer, we use 2-person tandem kayaks that can comfortably seat 2 adults and 1 kid. And since most people take this tour with their better halves or children or both, odds are you’ll be paddling together. The key to paddle fast and efficiently is to find a good rhythm with whoever you’re paddling with.
You may struggle at first, but you’ll quickly figure out a suitable system to paddle in sync with each other. And trust us – once you get your rhythm down and are able to skim across the water in synchronization, you’ll feel a sense of incredible camaraderie with your partner. After spending 2 hours focusing on being in sync, you’ll feel a lot closer and learn to communicate better under some pressure.
This is why we always say, if you want to improve communication, take a kayak into the middle of the Haulover Canal and figure it out!
Fun & Fitness
If you decide to take a dolphin kayak tour in the Haulover Canal, you should be ready to paddle through strong-ish waves and the wake of passing kayaks. Regardless of how experienced you are at kayaking, it is still a good workout.
The good news is, learning to kayak is one of the easiest things to do in Florida when it comes to outdoor adventure activities! It is easy to get a hang of it, plus our tour guides make sure you stop every so often to rest. Once you find the dolphins, you’ll take intermittent breaks to watch them swim as well.
We always get first-timers who have never kayaked before but they are able to paddle effortlessly within a matter of minutes and never feel like they are being left behind. So, if you are worried that your dolphin kayak tour will be too physically strenuous, don’t be. As long as you are willing to sweat a little, you will do great!
And hey, your biceps and shoulders will look fantastic the next day!
