What you'll do

Paddle in a clear kayak amongst manatees, dolphins, and more in the Indian River Lagoon within the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge! We'll get you checked in right when you arrive to allow for the most possible time on the water! Once you're all checked in, we'll give some basic paddle instructions and information about the tour ahead. We'll get you loaded up into your clear kayak and off we go! The paddle will last about 2 hours depending on the speed of our group and any wildlife we may see along the way. We will be sure to take plenty of pictures and give some awesome unique facts about the area on our several picturesque stopping points! There may be a bit of current depending on conditions so we like to tell our guests to be ready for a little bit of a work out (but a fun one)! Also, be ready for lots of great local nature and wildlife along the way with some great conversation!

I believe that the best way to experience nature is in a completely clear kayak which is why I founded Get Up And Go Kayaking! I am proud to host the top experience near Orlando! Clear kayaking allows you to have an immersive perspective on the unique wildlife and nature we have here in Florida - I like to think of it as having the best window seat to the 'real' Central Florida!

If you're not paddling with myself, you'll be guided by Liz, Scott, or Carley - all well-traveled local Florida lovers with backgrounds in adventuring and hosting!

It was a good experience and I got some overall good pictures, but having a clear kayak in these murky waters wasn't really worth it for me. I expected the water to be much clearer, and for us to see underneath us and maybe see the manatees straight down. We saw some dolphins way in the distance. The experience was ok and our guide was great, but I didnt really see what I expected.

I would highly recommend this day out. It is such a beautiful location and you get to see lots of wildlife- manatees, dolphins and lots of birds. Our guide Liz was really nice and knowledgeable. It’s lovely and relaxing and Liz moved at the right pace to suit everyone

Amazing! Host was wonderful! Tons of info and very chill, it was like kayaking with friends. It's the off season but we saw tons of birds and we did end up seeing dolphins! Weather was PERFECT. We plan on coming back in the summer for the night tour. Thank you for an amazing birthday afternoon 💕
