Kayak Fishing Trips

Aucilla River (4-6 hours) $120/person

The black-tinted water of the Aucilla River meanders 89 miles through Florida’s Big Bend region in southeastern Tallahassee. Moss-draped trees and native plants line the river as it carves through swamps and limestone banks. The river plays a game of “hide and seek” as it disappears into the ground, resurfacing a couple miles later along the Florida National Scenic Trail. Before emptying into the Gulf of Mexico at Apalachee Bay, the Aucilla River appears in a variety of sinkholes, caves, and springs. Its unique geological landscape attracts an abundance of wildlife, enticing many hunters and anglers to the area. The Paleoindians were among the first inhabitants to experience the benefits of Aucilla River over 12,000 years ago.

Inshore Saltwater Fishing (6 hours) $120/person

Tallahassee offers a unique opportunity for inshore saltwater fishing due to it’s close proximity to the forgotten coast. The local waters provide vast flats riddled with oyster bars and expansive grass beds which host a variety of species. Redfish, speckled trout, and flounder are among the most sought after game fish, but sheepshead and black drum may also be targeted along with tarpon and Spanish mackerel. This lively area provides gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, and some amazing scenery. You never know what you’ll see or catch when you paddle out into the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico!
