Enjoy a Yak Shack Tour Through the Mangroves

With winter quickly appraising its inevitable conclusion and springtime about to begin, it’s time to break free of your wintertime isolation and get out and enjoy the sunlight. Perhaps you already made a promise to yourself that you would be more active in 2023, get out more, and begin to partake in healthy activities. Well, thanks to Yak Shack, that opportunity is waiting for you! Experiencing the mangroves up close and personal is a great way to accomplish all of these tasks, in particular at Emerson Point

Enjoying the View from Overlook Tower 

While our kayak tours allow you to get up close and personal with the mangroves and the other plant and wildlife that are found in Florida, there’s a chance to partake in a truly breathtaking view that you’ll never forget. A 360-degree view from the observation tower will allow you to take in the scenery and wonder from on high. 

History Up Close & Personal 

One of the most enriching aspects of living in Florida is how far back the cultural history extends. Emmerson Point contains two Portavant Indian Mounds, left completely undisturbed and here for you to gauge a look into the distant past. By taking a moment to acknowledge the indigenous people who first settled in the area, we can gain a better understanding of their importance to our own cultural history. 

Take a Hike! 

While this phrase is often used when we want someone to leave us be, we mean it in quite the literal context of how it’s framed. Emmerson Point not only has several opportunities for you to kayak but a biking and hiking trail that extends to an incredible three and a half miles. Whether you simply want to take a brisk stroll or a scenic bike ride, you can do both and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds you completely. 

Getting Wild! 

As we previously mentioned, Emmerson Point and the surrounding areas have an abundance of marine, plant, and wildlife that you have the chance to get up close and personal with. Whether you’re an avid bird watcher or you’ve spent most of your life in an urban environment, you can see things that will help you appreciate the natural beauty that’s to be found in Florida.
