We offer a great variety of guided Kayak and Paddleboard Tours in the Lee County area. There are countless possibilities of places to explore, each with different features and attractions.
Guided Tours are a great way to get the kids out on the water and let them experience all the cool sights and the fun to be had in nature.
We have scheduled Tours, which take place at different locations depending on weather conditions and tides. You can see our schedule on the Calendar Page. For these scheduled Tours we charge a flat fee of $50 per person.
We can also provide customized tours which depart at a time and location of your choice and can be anywhere from 1 hour to all day in duration. These Tours are priced depending on the number of kayakers and duration of the trip, but are usually about 3 hours long, and cost $50 per person with a 2 person minimum. Group rates apply for parties of 6 or more.
All of our tours include Kayaks/Paddleboards and all necessary gear for the paddle. We do recommend that you bring:
a bathing suit or shorts you don't mind getting wet
a pair of water shoes or sneakers that you don't mind getting wet
If you would like you may bring a camera as well (there will be many photo opps.) but we recommend a waterproof camera or an inexpensive camera in a waterproof bag. We bring a waterproof camera with us on guided tours and take photos, which we then post to our Facebook page. You can then view them there, and share them with your friends and family. There is no charge for this.

We offer Manatee sighting tours year round, and see manatee regularly on many of our other tours. Our Manatee Tours focus more specifically on these gentle giants, though we do see other wildlife on these tours as well. When the water temperatures in the gulf drop suddenly due to a cold front, Manatees congregate in the warmer waters and make for an incredible close encounter with these gentle and fascinating animals. Weather conditions play a great role in how many Manatees will be present and therefore how many Manatees we might expect to see, so if you are interested in one of these Tours, please call or e-mail us and we will be able to make recommendations on timing these Tours.
Imagine for a moment the peacefulness of gliding along on a Kayak at dusk, watching the birds go to roost, seeing the sun setting over the water and night time taking over. Every Saturday evening closest to the full moon we go on a full moon paddle, which begins about an hour before sunset. We enjoy the beautiful scenery in anticipation of another stunning south Florida Sunset over the Gulf. After the sun sets, nighttime sets in and changes the atmosphere completely. There is not a sound to be heard. The moon illuminates the landscape and gives it a beautiful glow. It might well be one of the most peaceful experiences you will ever enjoy.
