Pedal kayaks are powered by a pedal system instead of paddles and this means that you use your legs to power the kayak. Pedaling the kayak is more efficient and frees up your arms to do other fun activities like fishing, drinking coffee, or taking pictures. You can choose to paddle instead too. Our favorite place for pedal kayaking is Canaveral National Seashore and the Indian River Lagoon.
Mangroves are a group of salt-tolerant trees that grow in coastal tidal mudflats and salt marshes in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world. These trees have adapted to the harsh conditions of these environments and play an important role in the coastal ecosystem. Mangroves provide habitat and food for many species of wildlife, help protect against coastal erosion, and serve as nursery grounds for many fish and shellfish species.
