Join us for a Saturday morning filled with on-the-water adventure as you explore coastal habitats from a kayak. Kayak Pack members will need to keep their eyes sharp if they want to spot some of the rich wildlife common to this area including brown pelicans, egrets, herons, gulls, dolphins and more. Become a true marine adventurer with MarineQuest's Kayak Pack!

Open-top tandem style kayaks, paddles, life vests and all other safety equipment will be provided. Lifeguards will be in attendance.
