Head to the North Beach side of Crandon Park and the nature center to head out on two-hour kayak eco-tours into the bay. You’ll be amazed at this pristine refuge for coastal birds and marine life within such close proximity to Miami. Guides share interesting stories and area history, too, including tales about the Tequesta Indians and pirates who once shipwrecked in the area. Hours vary.
Prices are $30 per person; reserve in advance.
