Cumberland Island Tour


Kayak through Nassau Sound, the dividing line of Florida and Georgia, with Amelia Island’s historic Fort Clinch to your south and Cumberland Island to your north. This trip is filled with undeveloped coastlines coupled with the historic fort to create breath taking views from your kayak. We will paddle across the sound to land on the southern tip of Cumberland Island, where you are almost sure to see one of the many wild horses who have been surviving here for the last 100 years. The abundance of wildlife is incredible in the sound, with wild dolphins, manatees, manta rays, sting rays, horseshoe crabs and many more amazing creatures.

We stop on Cumberland to have a picnic, provided by FCO. The menu will have a vegetarian option as well as a meat-eater option; please let us know your preference at booking. This is an intermediate paddle because we have to cross the open sound, so you must be confident that you can paddle up to two miles. Your guides are experienced ACA Kayak Instructors and Wilderness First Responders so you can rest assured that your safety is our number one priority.
