Wander through the River and Gulf

Paddling

Explore Florida's Anclote Key

Anclote River Resort is a paddler’s paradise. Just steps from your cottage or RV site, the Anclote River is an ideal entry point for wandering the wild and wonderful waterways around Florida’s west coast. Rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard to drift down the river’s glassy waters, through tunnel-like mangroves and past clusters of tiny islands draped with tangles of jungle. Along the way, keep a lookout for nesting shorebirds such as pelicans, osprey, bald eagles and piping plover.

For excitement on the open water, follow the Anclote River toward the blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico, where you could spot friendly dolphins, gentle sea turtles and majestic stingrays. Keep paddling to nearby Anclote Key Preserve Park, where palm trees sway against a landscape of pristine white-sand beaches across four islands. Be sure to bring a picnic and refreshments, as this undeveloped area is the perfect spot for an afternoon of sunbathing, swimming and birdwatching among natural beauty. Explore the interconnected bayous around the nearby city of Tarpon Springs, where the calm waters are home to gentle manatees.

If you’d rather let someone else guide the way, your Wanderful Concierge Specialist can recommend numerous tour operators in the area offering guided kayak excursions through this coastal wonderland.
