St. Lucie Inlet Preserve State Park Guided Kayak Tour

Bring your own kayak or rent one from
the park (call in advance for reservations- $30 single, $40 tandem, park entry included) please bring exact change or check, no change will be provided. Visitors of all ages and skill levels are welcome, the tour should take approximately 3 hours.
