Into the Wild Eco Diversions

into the wildAlso known as ITW, Into the Wild Eco Diversions is a unique company that offers guided tours with a one-on-one tour guide who offers information about Destin that you wouldn’t know otherwise. Head guide and owner of ITW Karl Renelt has been leading sailing excursions around the Gulf since the early 90s and is passionate about his job. These interpretive tours offer historical and environmental knowledge to create a unique and memorable excursion into the natural wildlife of Destin.

These tours are available in the form of hiking, biking, sailing, or kayaking. Hiking allows you to take in Destin at a slower pace, where the tour guide can delve into more detail and are custom made to fit your pace and timeframe. Discover Destin’s upland where you will walk the pine flatwoods and explore the complex strategies of survival unique to individual species; trek through the wetlands of Destin and learn how these areas shape Florida; or hike the coast where you will take a coastal journey through the vastly disappearing back dune environment.

Bicycle tours take you in and around the Point Washington State Forest where you will survey various eco systems in roughly two hours on generally firm terrain via single track trails as well as forest roads.

Sailing excursions and lessons are also provided by ITW. Sailing guides offer years of experience and offer interpretive talks about the living beach of Destin as well as a basic lesson. More in depth and professional lessons are also available. Sail the Gulf or the Choctawhatchee   Bay and access the tour at a number of spots along the way.

Kayak trips are great for discovering the history of Walton County. Take a kayaking diversion on one of the majestic dune lakes of Destin, through the old growth cypress swamps, or any of the lazy flowing creeks in the area. From May through October, when the water is warmer, snorkeling and swimming will also be offered during kayaking trips. This type of excursion is especially suitable for children, though all types are kid-friendly. Kayaking lessons are also included to add to your enjoyment of the trip and confidence in paddling.
