Valentine’s Day Sunset Kayak & Paddle Board Tour + Romantic Bonfire
February 14 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
One event on February 14, 2022 at 5:30 pm
Enjoy a breathtaking sunset and a cozy bonfire this Valentine’s Day! This event is completely outdoors!
Experience the Magic City like no other! Join us as we hunt down the Sun and catch ocean breezes in the process. We can stop on the beach or raft up and float as the Sun sets behind Miami’s fantastic skyline. The sunsets are spectacular the nights divine. So, come out and enjoy nature the way God intended — up close and personal. We’ll be returning to the Outdoor Center where we can cozy up to the fire and enjoy s’mores, chocolate covered strawberries, and other sweets! We encourage guests to bring snacks and drinks. We will not be serving any alcholic beverages. However, guests are able to bring.
It will be light when we launch, dark when we return. That means lights are required for the paddles. No lights, no paddle, it’s the law. Lights are provided for all rentals. If you bring your own, you must bring a bright white light that can be used to signal other vessels.
- SINGLE/PADDLE BOARDS: $75.00
- DOUBLE KAYAKS: $150.00
- BYO BOAT/BOARD: $55/pp
