Co będziecie robić

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 & private tours. 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.

*Things to note*
We mainly use double kayaks (you won't be paired with a stranger) kids 3 and up are welcome. Kids under 13 must be in a double kayak with an adult or older child. Weight Limit 250lbs pp | 450lbs combined for doubles. *No alcohol is allowed in the preserve.

This was a wonderful kayaking experience. Our guide, Spencer, was very knowledgeable about the many birds, plants, and aquatic life that we saw. He even passed around a jellyfish in a small container for each of us to see up close. Our group was small (8 adults) which allowed everyone to hear Spencer and to get all questions answered. We kayaked through and around mangroves and along various shorelines. We stopped on a small island to explore and/or gather shells. Spencer even emailed us photos after the tour!

We had to cancel due to my friend having medical issues, but the host, Ross, was a dear about it all. Super sweet. Very informative and gave quick responses. We will definitely book this experience with him again when we can.
