South Walton County's Western Lake Featured in Video Segment

By: Kevin Mims


Just thought I'd share with you a video of kayak tours and YOLO paddleboarding on Western Lake, one of Florida's rare coastal dune lakes located in South Walton County. The segment was filmed and produced by Elam Stoltzfus, and I was there when some of the scenes were shot! 

Featured in the video is Tom Losee, one of the founders of YOLO Board, and Murray Balkcom of Walco Eco Tours. When you are up in Northwest Florida, head down Scenic Highway 30-A and make a stop at both Eastern and Western Lakes. Let Murray guide you around Western Lake on a kayak tour, then head over to Eastern Lake where you can rent a YOLO paddleboard and cruise around Eastern Lake. Both are fantastic ways to have some fun and learn about the importance of the coastal dune lakes at the same time.
