  • Guided Kayak Tour of Beautiful Shell Key
    Our guided kayak tour of beautiful Shell Key Preserve (incl beach walk :) ) begins at the public launch area just north of the bridge to Fort De Soto Park. My team and I will meet everyone here, do introductions, hand out waterproof bags, and then get everyone prepped for kayaking (lifejackets are provided, but not required for guests over 16). No experience needed as we'll give everyone a little paddling overview/refresher! We use primarily tandem kayaks for ease and comfort. (Your booking time is the planned arrival time). After that we'll head out onto the water & into the Preserve! The Preserve is a beautiful shallow environment with plenty of wildlife & a very interesting ecosystem! We'll discuss both the ecosystem and history of the Preserve. From the shallow seagrass flats to the large mangrove islands to the pristine beaches of Shell Key itself we'll try and cover it all! Including traveling through some mangrove tunnels (with friendly tides, primarily March-October) We'll also look for and talk about some of our incredible wildlife in the Preserve including dolphins, manatees, & other various fish & bird life! From our kayaks we'll be able to see a few different St. Pete landmarks & we'll discuss their history as well as some recommendations for places to eat & things to do while you're here! If you enjoy your tour please consider tipping your guide thank you!

  • Clear Kayak Tour to Shell Key
    One of our guides (Chris, Jenna, Raven, Charlie, Hannah, Grace, or Matt) will get you checked in right when you arrive to allow for the most possible time on the water! Once you're all checked in, we'll give some basic paddle instructions and information about the tour ahead. We'll get you loaded up into your tandem clear kayak and off we go! The paddle will last about 2 hours depending on the speed of our group and any wildlife we may see along the way. We will be sure to take plenty of pictures and give some awesome unique facts about the area on our several picturesque stopping points! There will even be a couple chances for you to get out and explore Florida's unique marine habitats! The first half of the paddle will be along side of the beautiful mangroves with our first stop being a mangrove tunnel (tide permitting) , the second half will be a paddle across the blue waters to Shell Key where we will take time to enjoy the pristine sandbars and beach, finally we will paddle along the wildlife sanctuary to catch a glimpse of some native coastal birds! Be ready for lots of great local nature and wildlife along the way!

  • Kayaking in the Shell Key Preserve
    For this guided eco kayaking adventure we will meet at a public launch site just North of Fort De Soto State Park. In order to provide a great experience for our guests, we focus exclusively on small groups (8 guests). We will provide all the necessary equipment, dry bags, and instruction before heading out. We use stable sit-inside kayaks which are more comfortable and easier to paddle than sit-on-top & clear kayaks. This allows us to explore more of the preserve at an easier pace and provides better wildlife viewing opportunities. Once we depart, we'll explore the various ecosystems of the Shell Key Preserve highlighting the beauty of this coastal habitat. We'll kayak through mangrove tunnels (tides permitting), over shallow seagrass meadows, and look for wildlife along the way. Once we reach Shell Island you will have time to swim, explore, look for shells, or just relax and enjoy the beauty of this uninhabited barrier island. The preserve is home to a variety of shorebirds, nesting sea turtles, dolphins, manatees and much more. It is a great way to get out and see the natural side of St Pete. Please note: alcohol and pets are not permitted in the Preserve. Other things to note Moderate physical activity required. We mainly use double kayaks, kids 3 and up are welcome with an adult for each child under 13. Kids under 13 must be in a double with an adult.

Once we are ready to paddle, we will embark on a two hour kayak adventure exploring beautiful Sarasota Bay and the world famous Lido Key mangrove tunnels. I'll tell you all about the interesting history of our beautiful bay as well as talk to you about the incredible flora and fauna we encounter! If we are lucky, we may even be visited be amazing dolphins and gentle manatees. Then, we will journey through Lido Key's spectacular mangrove tunnels while we learn of their importance to our coastal ecosystem. Once our tour is over, we will send you on your way with memories that will last a lifetime. Important note: I will message you immediately after you book to get your preference on single kayaks or tandems.
