Guided Eco Tour and Rental Locations

Join a paddle board or kayak tour in Englewood by launching into Lemon Bay. This spot is located at the kayak launch in Bill Coy Preserve.

Highlights of Bill Coy

You’re surrounded by mangrove islands when paddling in this coastal location.  It’s a very serene experience.  Many threatened bird species flock to these islands. Manatees and dolphins are common sightings throughout the barrier islands around our preserve.

Stress Free Paddling!

This spot is fantastic for wind protection, access to quick, free parking, no boating traffic and lots of marine life!  The kayak launch is public and those with their own equipment can access it easily.

Looking for an easy kayaking route in Englewood?

If you’re renting to explore on your own this location is fantastic.  Maps are provided and the trail is marked with ribbons throughout the paddling area. We also provide phone cases for communication if needed.

Looking for more of a challenging route?

Our Bill Coy Location is close proximity to Stump Pass Beach State Park and Palm Island.  This area allows routes for beginner, intermediate, and advanced paddlers!  The most challenging area is optional and not recommended for first-time paddlers. Crossing the ICW (intra coastal waterway) better known as the “Boat Lane” is an option for skilled paddlers. Boaters in this area do not stop for paddlers, therefore you must pay attention to your surroundings when crossing.

Intermediate to Advanced Kayaking Options

For intermediate routes, we recommend paddling to Rum Bay to explore a hidden gem of a mangrove tunnel. Visit the Rum Bay Restaurant, for lunch, this dining experience is only accessible by boat! We are currently awaiting the completion of their floating docks, which will allow access for paddlers.  Another options is to venture to Thornton Key and explore a primitive hiking trail.  Habitat on the trail is considered a part of Southwest Florida’s Tropical Hardwood Hammock ecosystem. Additionally, it is 31 acres of land, and supports many rare species.  This Charlotte County Preserve, located across the bay from the kayak launch.

Beach Access

Once across the ICW, kayaking to the point of Palm Island is one option for breaking on the beach.  Be sure to look for where the private docks end and pull up your kayaks or paddle boards high onto the sand to avoid them drifting away.

Strong Caution for Paddlers – DO NOT ENTER THE PASS

Strong currents are present in this area and paddlers need to beware of venturing around the island. We do not recommend anyone – even the strongest of paddlers venture into Stump Pass. Remain vigilant around the point of the island as currents can hold you place.  Remain close the private docks for entry to the beach. 

Stump Pass Beach State Park

The highlight of visiting Stump Pass Beach State Park is paddling to the Southern most point of Manasota Key and seeing the clear water.  If you make it to Palm Island, you’ve accomplished just that and can experience the clearest water in Lemon Bay and Charlotte Harbor Preserve.  An advanced paddle route to this area includes crossing the boating lane and exploring Peterson Island and Whidden Key.

SUP Englewood Testimonials

We have visited the Boca Grande/Englewood area of Florida several times, yet had not experienced a kayak tour through SUP Englewood until recently. By far the best activity we have ever done! Nicole is very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. She loves what she does and it shows. She takes pictures of your excursion and then posts them for the participants to access. We learned so much, yet had an incredibly relaxing time. So wonderful!!!

On a lovely sunny morning we left Stump Pass in kayaks supplied by SUP Englewood with Nicole as our naturalist guide. After crossing the Intracoastal, we had a leisurely meander through the mangroves with Nicole explaining various things that we saw. She let us handle sea stars, tulip shells and slimy things that squirted like sea cucumbers among many other things. She patiently answered questions galore on any subject nature related for two hours. What a lovely day and good value! Thank you, Nicole!

My husband was a first time SUP and his experience was fabulous. Nicole gave great instruction and was very encouraging. His fear abated, he began to enjoy this new adventure. I enjoyed her knowledge of the habitat. Please call and enjoy a great experience on the paddleboard! She is great!
