Kayaking in Cocoa Beach’s Mangrove Tunnels – Sept. 2015
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.
The red mangrove roots provide shelter for fish and reptiles alike.
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.
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. Ramp Road Park in Cocoa Beach is one of 2 public launching parks that provide access to the Thousand Islands. Ramp Road Park is best to launch from during the week and guided tours are not allowed on the weekends.
