Do It. Kayak through Naples.

As summer approaches, so too does one of my favorite outdoors-in-a-big-city activities: Kayaking through Naples. Long Beach's small waterfront community makes for a perfect arena to get in some kayaking, and around this time of year the small, harmless, petable (petable!) moon jellies are out in Naples.

As your kayak coasts through the water, the little jellies come up to your boat and you can reach down and touch them (although I've been told picking them up is strongly discouraged, for the sake of the jellies).

Renting a kayak is extremely inexpensive at Long Beach's Kayaks on the Water, where they provide kayakers with maps of the area. Kayak rental costs $ 8/hour/person.

Kayaks on the Water is located at 5411 E. Ocean Blvd. in Long Beach.
