Our paddling guide includes the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) and associated creeks from its
intersection with the St. Johns River south to the Duval County line. Easily accessible for half-day or longer trips by paddlers of all skills and ages, this distinctive waterway is primarily bordered by expanses of pristine, protected salt marsh, pine islands, swamp, and hammock communities. Four nature preserves are found along its path: Dutton Island Preserve,
Tideviews Preserve, Castaway Island Preserve, and Cradle Creek Preserve.
