Kayaking the Washington Oaks Gardens

If you are looking for an exciting kayaking adventure for the entire family, then look no further than the Washington Oaks Gardens. The Washington Oaks Gardens is a beautiful place to visit that really puts you in touch directly with nature. While there are many different events and activities that take place at the Gardens, one of the most fun filled activities to do while at the Gardens is kayaking. This kayaking site is available to all people, experienced kayakers and non-experienced ones.

Washington Oaks Gardens allows you to take a kayak out that has a Hobie pedal, allowing you to fish hands-free! You can catch fish for fun and release them back into the water without harming the fish. Kayaking through the gardens during sunset offers a magical experience with breathtaking views. You never feel more connected to nature than you do at that moment, when the breeze picks up over the water and the water starts lapping and you start rocking slightly from the movement as the last of the sun disappears over the horizon. It is a wonderful experience, leaving you with a feeling of contentment.

If you are looking for a new exciting kayaking location, then you should give the Gardens a try. You won’t regret visiting Washing Oaks Gardens because you’ll be able to see and appreciate the beauty of nature’s fragile ecosystem. Endangered Florida Manatees are a frequent visitor; as well as other wildlife. If you’re into bird watching, this is the perfect site for you to visit: over one hundred species of birds have been observed in the gardens.

    We are visiting the area and are interested in doing some kayaking. We went to Washington Oaks Gardens but didnt see a kayak launch close. We’re not wanting to carry them too far :)

    We loved seeing all the Dolphin in the river and thought it would be a great place. Any other suggestions?

      Hey Karen,
      The best place to launch to paddle up to Washington Oaks would be launching from Bing’s Landing. It is a nice safe boat ramp with easy access to the park. Here is the address :
      .5862 N. Oceanshore Blvd.
      Palm Coast, FL

      Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions or concerns!! The tide can be tricky out there so make sure you check it and plan your trip according to incoming and outgoing tides!
