Our Story

Our passion for environmentalism has made us one of the few, if not the only kayaking company to be acknowledged by the Miami Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserves Adopt-An-Island program. They have contracted us our very own island to maintain & clean up. All the trash we collect helps scientists gather relevant data to use toward more sustainable interactions between humans and marine life. We have since then launched our non profit, Clear View Cleanups which is dedicated to taking over island cleanups and engaging with locals and tourists alike to do our part.

We have been living in Miami for 10 years, each born in Florida & grew up surrounded by the abundant mangrove waterways. We know that the best parts of Miami are on the outskirts, off the beaten path of the notorious beach and party scenes. We look forward to hosting you!

Kayaking Tours

If you are looking to take a tour of Miami from the scenic routes provided by the waterways that run around the city, then you may be interested in taking a kayak along with you for the journey. You can rent a clear kayak, which allows you to see everything below you, and travel without any hassles. You can choose to rent the kayaks for either a single, two, or three hours.

The kayaks available can seat two individuals, making them simple and easy to control. You and a friend can go on an adventure that you won't forget anytime soon as you kayak through the beautiful city of Miami, seeing all the beauty that the city has on offer while you are at it. This is great for team building activities Miami offers.

If you have never been on a kayak before, you can get some training before you set off, just to make certain that you can enjoy the tour fully. If kayaking does not sound too appealing to you, then you can choose from a couple of other options that might be more appealing to you. Regardless of what you want to do, there are so many fun activities that you can take part in while in Miami. Making it a no-brainer that you can find something interesting to do.

 

 

Night Kayaking Tours

Should the nightlife be more of your scene, then you may want to consider going on a night kayaking tour. These events are generally a ton of fun, really taking the beauty of Miami as well as the emphatic nightlife and merging them together.

When you choose to go on a night kayak tour, you give yourself the opportunity to get out on the water and meet tons of cool people while enjoying the lights and music that create the atmosphere. Part of the activities that you engage in include paddling to a destination where you are served some champagne and light snacks. You then get to enjoy the company of all the people on board with you in an extremely tranquil setting. All of this is facilitated by a local tour guide, so you do not have to worry about getting lost or not knowing what to do at any point. Whether it's night kayaking Miami adventures or moonlight kayaking Miami has all of this to offer.

Unfortunately, this activity is at the mercy of the weather, and should the weather create any safety concerns, the guide may choose to cancel the tour for the safety of all the individuals interested in going on the tour. Should this be the case, you do not have to worry about the money you have paid, as you should be refunded.

Also, if you are interested in rescheduling or canceling your booking, then you have to do so 24 hours in advance. This is because any cancellations that are done within 24 hours of the tour are non-refundable, and you would like to avoid that at all costs.

 

 

Paddleboard Tours

If kayaking does not appeal to you but stand up paddling Miami sightseeing while coasting through the city sounds like a better option, then you are in luck. You can choose a stand up paddle Miami experience instead. Riding the paddleboard is a much more relaxed and laid-back experience as you get to slowly move through the water enjoying all the beautiful architecture and scenery around you. Similar to the kayaking tours, you can choose to go on paddleboard tours that range in time from one, two, and three hours.

The major benefit of the paddleboard tours is that you can go in groups of more people. With the paddleboards, a large number of individuals can all paddle alongside one another. This makes the adventure a lot more interesting as you can converse and enjoy the scenery of the beautiful city with some of your peers.

 

 

Cleanup Tours

Should you feel like being slightly more philanthropic, you may want to rather engage in any of the cleanup events that are hosted. The cleanup events are all designed to assist the community in cleaning up the rivers and beaches that run through on Monument Island Miami as well as other islands in Miami. Our non-profit initiative dedicates itself to keeping the environment clean and neat.

Should this already not sound good enough, as what is better than helping the community and those around us, there are also cocktails provided while the event takes place. This certainly makes things a little more interesting. So, should you feel like helping those around you while also having some fun along the way, the cleanup tours are definitely something for you to consider. The cleanup tours are a great option for corporate team building Miami activity.

It's not just us who profit from spending time at the beach. Many marine species depend on the beach ecosystem as well. Since they are millimeters in size or hidden in the sand, most can't be seen with the naked eye, but they play an important role in seawater filtration and nutrient recycling. Some animals depend on the beach as a fish nursery, as well as nesting sites and rookeries for turtles and birds. Beaches are a key feeding ground for birds and terrestrial species higher up on the aquatic food chain. Beaches have the potential to help mitigate the impact of climate change. They could shield the coastline from the destructive effects of high winds and waves from strong storms by serving as a barrier. Of course, all of these advantages are contingent on our beaches being secure, clean, and pleasant.

Benefits of Cleanups

A beach cleanup is basically a voluntary project that takes place on a daily basis along coastlines all over the world. People chip in to pick up litter on the beach, making it a better and safer place for everyone. By ensuring that no litter destroys aquatic organisms or is dangerous enough to interrupt the marine life cycle, beach cleaning benefits the coastal and ocean environment.

A beach cleanup also provides an opportunity to collect new information about the condition of our coastlines and the forms of garbage that pollutes them. Environmental organizations may recognize the most dangerous waste products and devise strategies to prevent them from entering the ocean or being polluted on beaches again by identifying them.

Consider the beach to be a connection between the land and the sea. It's a vitally important biodiversity hotspot. Cleaning our beaches is an important first step toward cleaning our oceans.

Cleaning our beaches has monetary benefits as well. About 28 million jobs are supported by coastal and marine waters. Our beaches are popular tourist destinations in the United States, accounting for 85 percent of all tourism venues in the country. When beaches become contaminated, it not only leads to a rise in illnesses in the local population, but it also has a negative impact on the local economy. Indeed, economists estimate that a typical swimming day is worth $35 per beach tourist, so the economic loss when the beach is closed is huge.

Beach clean-ups also provide residents with an educational opportunity. There's a big difference between looking at images of plastic waste on the internet and seeing it on a beach. It makes one consider the effects of the non-biodegradable materials we use and how they affect the environment.

 

 

The Urgency of Beach Cleanups

With tons of waste such as plastic and other commodities being released into the oceans every day, it is essential that this is dealt with. Fish and other marine animals die on a daily basis because of these events taking place. For this reason, it is extremely urgent that the beaches are cleaned as soon as possible.

 

 

Dangers of Water Pollution

When we're talking about microscopic contamination of a body of water the size of the Pacific Ocean, it can seem insignificant. However, we don't realize that microplastics, chemicals, and heavy metals may be consumed by microorganisms and cause damage to their internal organs. More giant marine animals can eat these microorganisms, allowing waste to eventually work its way up the food chain. Contaminants may be able to eliminate a connection entirely at some stage, or they may be able to reach the top of the pyramid by endangering human health.

Water bodies are home to a variety of plant and animal species that depend on them for survival. A threat exists that is beyond their influence, making them vulnerable to water contamination. Thousands of turtles and marine mammals were harmed as a result of the Deep Horizon oil spill in 2010. Not only water pollution: other types of pollution can devastate the ecosystems and habitats of water-dwelling organisms, resulting in the extinction of entire species.

So, should you feel like assisting with these issues and going on some eco adventures Miami needs, you may want to consider joining one of the cleanups.
