Kayaking and Canoeing
Matlacha Pass National Wildlife Refuge offers some of the best kayaking and canoeing in the world. This aquatic preserve is the essence of the southwest Florida estuary teeming with life: ospreys, bald eagles, wood storks, sea turtles and manatees. There are several places visitors can rent a kayak or canoe.
Estero River offers a canopy of mossy trees and meandering cumulus clouds. Access it either at Koreshan State Park (if you have your own paddle craft) or across the street at Estero River Outfitters to rent one for a couple of hours or for the day.
