There’s a new way to hit the water… it’s the Bay to Waterway Boat Cruise and Kayak Program recently launched by Miami EcoAdventures, a division of Miami-Dade County Parks. Kirk Gimenez recently got to take the 4-hour tour. He also interviewed Ed Pritchard, the leader of the program at Miami EcoAdventures. Watch the video to see the tour or https://www8.miamidade.gov/global/recreation/ecoadventures/home.page visit for more.

Join Miami EcoAdventures & Miami-Dade Parks for a day on the water exploring the sights and sounds of Biscayne Bay and the Coral Gables Waterway by boat and personal watercraft!

Their unique water adventure is perfect for those looking to enjoy a bit of relaxation and a bit of adventure!

Learn about the history of Miami as you cruise across Biscayne Bay in a 45-foot Parks Explorer catamaran. Then, hop in a kayak and explore the quiet mangrove channels along the Coral Gables waterfront, home to wading birds and manatees.

It costs $95 per person. And it's suitable for ages 9 and up (children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult).
