CANOE ESCAPE

Explore Tampa's premier attraction for wildlife viewing, bird watching, photography, canoeing, kayaking, and family memories.

 

WELCOME!

Escape to nature on a 2-hour to full day, downstream, quiet-water, paddling adventure through a 16,000-acre wildlife preserve. In all seasons the Hillsborough River astounds with its beauty and abundant wildlife. From the thousands of White Ibis in the fall, the sightings of deer, wild hog, and turkey in the winter, the proliferation of songbirds in spring, and its cooling shade on a summer's day, the Hillsborough River brings a new surprise and delight around each bend.

Give the gift of nature by purchasing a Canoe Escape gift card!
