Emerson Point

One of the advantages of living in Florida is that there’s an almost never-ending supply of natural beauty to behold. There’s no shortage of locations to visit and enjoy, from the Everglades to the beaches. Today, we’ll be taking a look at Emerson Point. As one of the most unique locations to be found in the state of Florida, there’s never a bad time to visit.

During our tour, we will search for amazing wildlife including Sea Stars, Mangrove Crabs, Cormorants, and more. You will also learn the importance of the mangroves to our ecosystem.

Once through the tunnels, we will coast through Terra Ceia Bay watching for Dolphins, Manatees, and Spotted Sea Rays on our way to the sandbars where we can snorkel and dig for Sea Urchins, Sand Dollars, Shells, and more!

Kayaking 

Just in case hiking isn’t your bag and you want a more adventurous experience, many visitors to Emerson Point partake in kayaking. There are three individual kayak launch sites, two of which are openings in the mangrove area and the quickest way to explore the terrain. At the tip of Emerson Point, there’s a launch area adjacent to a popular location. (This is also another activity people enjoy doing at Emerson Point.) Kayaking is an excellent way to get up close and personal with the mangroves and several species of Heron and other wildlife that are native to the area. The endeavor is an experience you won’t forget anytime soon.

Say Hello to Hiking 

If you’re someone who enjoys a lengthy hike and breathing the fresh air, then Emerson Point is an ideal location for you. There are several hiking trails that will take you to many breathtaking sights that simply can’t be described in words. And what’s better, there are no fees to be collected upon entry. That’s right, all of this wonderful scenery is available to you free of charge. However we do recommend that a small donation be made to help preserve the area for future generations to enjoy.

Emerson Point Preserve is managed by Manatee County and consists of 270 acres of land. There’s much to do, but we can’t stress enough how impressive the Potent Temple Mound is. The breathtaking spot has been estimated to be 1,200 years old and was crafted long before the Spanish first landed at St. Augustine. A boardwalk takes you over the mound so you can revel in its wonder.
