Their rates for two hours are: Single/Tandem kayaks $35/$45, Paddle boards $40. They offer a discounted rate of 10% if 10 boards/kayaks are rented at the same time with the same card. Some of us own our own boards, so we may stay longer than 2 hours.

Oleta River State Park is a wilderness paradise. It is difficult to believe Oleta River State Park exists in the shadow of downtown Miami. At just over a thousand acres, this natural oasis—Florida’s largest urban park—is a haven for mountain bikers, paddlers, anglers, swimmers and for families out to enjoy a picnic along scenic Biscayne Bay. The protected and shallow water in the state park is the perfect setting for beginner paddlers.

Paddle tour -Meet at the launch site at 11:30am. Departure around noon for 2+ hours. We will visit the pristine beaches and the mangrove trails inside the state park before heading out to the paradisiac Haulover sandbar for a beach party you won't forget :) Don't forget your waterproof photo camera as dolphins and manatees are regular visitors of the State park. You can also bring snacks and refreshments while at the sandbar.

The park charges $6 per vehicle, & there’s usually a long line. So plan accordingly.
