JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa • March 8–10th, 2023

Our kayak journey takes us along the coastline of what the first adventurers called the “Chequescha Bay.” Reflect on how ancient peoples used the area’s resources for their livelihood and how perspectives of the settlers have changed over time. As you paddle past mangroves teeming with life, you will see what dramatic changes the shoreline has experienced. You will encounter breathtaking views of the open bay and learn of the close connection between the waters lapping at your kayak’s hull and the struggle for Cuban freedom. Learn why the preservation of these shallow waters is so important to wildlife and humans. You will explore the ecology and history of this unique bay the same way most humans have witnessed it over thousands of years. As the locals say, “We all came by water.”

Recommended attire: Comfortable clothing that can get wet, closed toed shoes, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Change of clothes recommended.
