"Wanted to say thanks! I had friends from California in town for a wildland fire management meeting and they wanted to kayak real Florida. Our trip on Durbin Creek was perfect! Thanks for making it all happen! ..."

Dutton Island Full-Day Tour

  Date Date selector Moderate
Rate $129.00 / person

Close to Beaches, Intracoastal, Jacksonville, Fl

Tour the pristine salt marsh ecosystem around the Dutton Island Preserve, located near Atlantic Beach, Fl on the intracoastal waterway. This area is exceptional for wildlife viewing by kayak and by land, as the preserve has 3 miles of hiking trails through pine flatwoods and live oak hammocks.

Plenty of sunshine, a cool seabreeze, picnic tables and hiking trails make this a wonderful destination for a day outdoors with friends and family.

Pack a lunch and enjoy this full day "out-and-back" adventure on land and sea, paddling through the salt marsh and hiking the trails of the Dutton Island Preserve. The tour departs from the boat ramp beneath the Atlantic Blvd bridge over the intracoastal waterway. Followed by a kayak tour of the salt marsh, lunch and hiking around Dutton Island before returning to the launch site.
