Kayak the Santa Rosa Sound

Check out Spectre Island and more!

Kayaking is one of the best ways to experience all that the Santa Rosa Sound has to offer. This adventure is great for older kids in their own kayaks or for younger children sharing an adult’s kayak. There’s a good chance you’ll be exposed to wildlife including osprey, bald eagles, rays, and even dolphins fishing for mullet. There are multiple ways to get the Santa Rosa Sound including Liza Jackson Park and the Gulf Islands National Seashore.

Tip from our locals:

The Santa Rosa Sound is an active waterway, so use caution when crossing the channel and look our for passing boats and other marine traffic.
