Kayak Matheson Hammock Park

Immerse yourself in the remarkable beauty of Biscayne Bay.  The Bison will travel with a naturalist-guide through mangroves, the world's only salt-water trees, and discover a world filled with Brown Pelicans, Osprey, Great Blue Herons, Nurse Sharks, Sting Rays, and more.  We will even get a glimpse of the beautiful homes in Coral Gables. This is one adventure you'll never forget. 

What should I bring for the excursion?
Bring plenty of water, at least 2-quarts per person. Protection from the sun including sun block with a high SPF (15 or higher), hats, and sunglasses are important. Snacks or a light lunch will make your day more enjoyable as there are no food options inside the park. Closed-toe shoes required.

Location / Departure Point
Please meet us at the concession stand in Matheson Hammock Park, 9610 Old Cutler Rd., Miami, FL 33156.

Kayak Rentals: Single - $15 for 1st hr, $10 per hr thereafter and Double - $25 for 1st hr, $15 / hr thereafter (Single kayaks are limited.  If you want to call ahead to reserve a kayak or to ask additional questions you may do so at[masked]-1519.  Just ask for Paula.)

Bring a picnic lunch, your swim suit and towel so that we can have lunch then relax at the beach/park afterwards. You may want to bring snorkel gear, too. 

Hope to see you there!

    Hi Everyone: There is park entrance fee of $6 per car and there is no fee to launch your kayak.

    We will be on the water for approx 2 hours, then have our lunch, then relax on the beach if one wants to.
