The most knowledgeable guides on the water
Welcome to Viking EcoTours! We are a small conservation minded tour company that operates on Florida’s most beautiful waterways to create an effortless and fun experience for guests.
We value treating everyone like family and our tour routes like home. While we create meaningful connections and surreal experiences in the wild Florida that very few visitors see without expert local guides, we also give back to the community and environment. We’ve joined 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual profits to non-profit organizations focused on the environment and partnered with Leave No Trace for education, training and outreach so we protect the pristine nature of Florida’s waterways.
Wildlife viewing, leave no trace practices, and nature interpretation are included with all tours
Viking EcoTours uses Hobie Pedal Kayaks so exploring Florida’s scenic waterways is effortless and fun for all ages. Guests simply pedal through the lagoon with their hands free to take pictures, drink water, or point out the wildlife. We create safe, comfortable, and unique experiences while guaranteeing an environmentally friendly excursion. Viking EcoTours is a proud partner of Leave No Trace as well as a member of 1% for the Planet and the Florida Society for Ethical Ecotourism.
We supply all equipment and a professional wildlife/nature guide certified by the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and American Red Cross. No experience is necessary for your guided kayak tour. Your guide will teach you everything you need to know in just a few minutes to get you on the water and cruising along the lagoon to see mangroves, manatees, dolphins, jumping fish, diving birds, and more.
Our pedal kayaks are stable, silent, and safe to provide you with a smooth ride and effortless experience through Florida’s wild waterways for a chance to see manatees, dolphins, and more. We’re here to make your trip safe, easy, and memorable with our kayak tours around the islands and mangroves of Canaveral National Seashore with an expert guide.
