Lover's Key Resort.
Spend five glorious days paddling with dolphins, manatee and wading birds on Florida's southwest Gulf coast. We'll pass the famed beaches of Sanibel and Captiva, stay on Cayo Costa, Florida's least-visited state park (accessible only by boat), and explore the watery mangroves tunnels of Sanibel Island's Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge.
The trip includes two nights of island camping, a night in a beachy cottage on Sanibel, and a bayfront inn in the funky fishing village of Matlacha, home of the "fishingest bridge in the world." We'll average 8 to14 miles daily, 55 miles in all.
Cost: $1150 per person, all-inclusive of kayaks, camping equipment, lodging and food. Discount for bringing your own kayak and/or camping gear.
