What are the benefits of taking a kayak tour?

The biggest benefit to taking a kayak tour is seeing more marine life on the water.  Moreover, you can expect to learn about the coastal ecosystem.  Additionally, your guide will name every bird, fish and sea creature you see while paddling.  It’s an experience the whole family can enjoy!

Why Use Sit on Top Kayaks in Coastal Waterways?

Self-bailing kayaks is the safest option for beginners. Sit on top boats will help to keep you cool in the hot, Florida sun. Storage is located at the back of every kayak, perfect for storing cold drinks, sunscreen, and fishing supplies.

Tips for Paddling in Southwest Florida

What can I bring with me?

  • Water
  • Sunscreen
  • Waterproof Camera
  • Flip Flops or Water Shoes
  • Any medication that might be needed during the trip
  • Pack a light snack if you’re diabetic or have any other medical conditions
  • We provide dry bags for your keys and cell phone.  Although we recommend leaving valuables in the car.

Recommendations:

  • Towels for the car
  • A change of clothes if you plan on going anywhere afterwards
  • Always eat before you go paddling as you’ll burn lots of calories paddling in the sun and you need energy.
  • Show up hydrated.
  • Avoid heavy drinking the evening prior to your paddling trip.  We’ve had many guests that struggle with hydration after an evening out.
  • If you’re enjoying the beach and other outdoor activities remember your sunscreen.  Sunburn can make other outdoor activities unbearable afterwards.
