Kayaking in Cocoa Beach’s Mangrove Tunnels

Kayaking year round with Adventure Kayak. Today we explored the mangrove tunnels of Cocoa Beach and immediately spotted a Great Blue Heron fishing along the water’s edge. great blue heron cocoa beach

The red mangrove roots provide shelter for fish and reptiles alike. red mangrove leaves roots cocoa beach

The mangrove tunnels of Cocoa Beach’s Thousand Islands are perfect for protection from strong winds, but can be challenging to navigate through without a tour guide. kayak cocoa beach mangroves

An Anhinga, also known as the “snake bird” sits on a tree branch while drying it’s wings in the sun. Anhinga dive under water to fish and cannot fly until their wings are dry enough. anhinga cocoa beach kayak tourRamp Road Park in Cocoa Beach is one of 2 public launching parks that provide access to the Thousand Islands.
