Kayak St Augustine Tour/Lighthouse to Beaches for Lunch

 

 

 

 

 

St Augustine Lighthouse to

Beaches Resturant for Lunch


 

Join us for a fun filled full day of yaking, food and friends on the beautiful aquatic landscape of the oldest city.

The day will begin at the St Augustine Lighthouse Park and paddle down the Salt Run and Conch Island.

 

Conch Island, 1937

Anastasia State Park has long been a favorite vacation and recreational site for both locals and tourists. Originally known as South Beach, today's Anastasia State Park was once home to several distinctive local tourist attractions. The St. Augustine Alligator Farm was located here from the late 1800s to 1921 and was known as the South Beach Alligator Farm. In 1893, during a boring for an artesian well a mineral flow was discovered. After two years, the mineral and burning qualities of the spring were placed on exhibit and it became known as "The Burning Spring" - another popular tourist stop. Visitors also enjoyed a ride on horseback along the area now known as Conch Island, a parcel of land which became connected to Anastasia Island and the park after Hurricane Dora in 1964. The alligator farm and spring are now gone and horseback riding is no longer allowed at the park, but the natural beauty that has always attracted folks to Anastasia Island remains.

Leaving the Salt Run we will paddle across the St Augustine Inlet into the Intracoastal Waterway and to Beaches restaurant at Vilano for lunch.

 

No hurries and no worries on this paddle.

Just a way to enjoy the day.

    Does anyone know what the purpose of those buoys are in Salt Run? I was curious if kayakers are supposed to go to the right or left of them or does it really matter?

      yes, i think they were white. I was just wondering in case I go out alone again in the future.

      I saw a lot of them, sometimes with the words, danger, rocks written on them. I think they were more towards the edge of water and not in the middle. Just curious....

    I got there late and missed everyone. I had a one woman trip. I was on the water for 4 hours. Very enjoyable. The weather was perfect. I saw a large sea turtle swimming and tons of all kinds of birds.
