Eco Tours on Anclote River
The best educational, intimate, expertly guided tours exploring the wildlife in Tarpon Springs
Paddle the Anclote River in Tarpon Springs. We start just a walking distance away from the historic Sponge Docks and wind through the mangroves, with water only a few feet deep most of the time. We will find tranquility on the river and learn a lot about the nature and ecosystems around us as we float through the hidden wonderlands on the river.
With three tour times throughout the day find the perfect time to join our expert guides on the water. Remember wild life is wild, we will do our best to find it for you but we are off the beaten track in their territory, we go uninvited so we go peacefully.. Each different launch time will offer a different experience, equally as wonderful as the others so choose a time that best fits your schedule.
Sunset Tours / Night Tours
At River Wild Kayaking we offer Sunset / Night.
We leave our launch around as the sun is setting, and travel through the mangroves at a time when the wildlife is very active. The waterway feels like a different world to the one of just a few hours ago. A wonderful sight to see in this transitional time of day. We work our way towards a bridge just in time to see the Bats leave their nest as the sun goes down, ready to feast on Florida's insects. Sometimes a handful, sometimes over a hundred, depending on weather conditions. On the way back your guide will then help you navigate the stars. That's right! Our guides are not just wildlife experts, they love the night sky too.
