Start your 4-hour kayak tour of Blackwater River by meeting at Goodland Boating Park at 740 Palm Point Drive in Goodland. Meet your guide, and hop on a shuttle van for a quick ride over to Collier Seminole State Park. For this tour, you can either bring your own kayaking equipment or use the equipment provided for you. Your tour time is based on the tides, and you’ll be given a specific meeting time after booking.
Your guide and group get dropped off in the park, and get situated in their kayaks. Once everyone is ready, your guide leads the way across the river. This trip takes about four hours and covers about seven miles. Along the way, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife. You might be able to spot a manatee or two in their natural habitat. The kayak tour ends at Blackwater Bay.
Once you get out of the water, board the shuttle van that’s waiting for you to take you back to your meeting point from the beginning of the day — Goodland Boating Park. At the boating park, it’s up to you what to do with the rest of your day.
