We are Shell Key's #1 kayak tour. We provide 2 guides on every tour to ensure your safety and enjoyment. Upon arrival, guests will be offered a paddle instruction, making this experience perfect for both experts and first-timers. We use comfortable sit-inside kayaks and paddle at a leisurely pace through the preserve while I tell about the local history, and wildlife & nature we find along the way. Depending on tidal conditions, we will explore one or more of the hidden mangrove tunnels tucked away in the preserve. Approximately half-way through the tour, we will stop at one of several possible landing sites at the island of Shell Key to stretch our legs, swim, snorkel, or collect shells. After enjoying the island, we will make our way back through the preserve, possibly visiting areas or tunnels we did not see before, always keeping a watchful eye out for dolphins, manatees, and the many species of birds that live in the area. We will arrive back at the launch site approximately 3 hours after launch time.
Other things to note
Contact me before booking if you need a tandem kayak. Anyone under the age of 12 must be in a tandem with an adult. Children 3 and older are welcome on the tour. If you have any questions or are interested in larger groups or other dates, please call, text or Facebook message us before reserving.

Tours take place in Shell Key Preserve. As a native Floridian, I will guide you through the backcountry of the preserve. Through shallow grassy meadows we go, watching fish jump and birds hunt; all the while, ducking through the mangrove tunnels (tide permitting) and allowing time for pictures and explanations of the surrounding habitat. Most of the area we paddle in is typically only frequented by locals and is off-limits to motorized vessels.

Fantastic value for the trip! It was very peaceful and felt remote during the week. Kayaks were comfortable and we saw/learned a lot about wildlife

Scott and Karissa are very warm and fun loving hosts. I was traveling alone, and very nervous as I had never kayaked. Even tho I was always in the rear, Karissa stayed back and was encouraging, and made suggestions to help me. It is a great value!

I recommend this kayaking adventure to anybody. It was so easy to climb aboard and paddle away. This experience is extremely safe in my opinion and great for any experience level. Take a day to find out for yourself and enjoy the wonderful nature that Scott and Karissa are so knowledgeable out. I would love to do this again the next time I visit Florida.

Wonderful time! Scott is very knowledgeable of the area, and answered all my many questions about the area, and had much interesting input! The trip was beautiful! My husband and i found lots of neat shells to take home! And on our trip back we met up with some dolphins! Learned about several types of birds, namely the ones you'll meet swimming alongside your kayak with you. The black crabs were pretty cool too!☺

This is an adventure that you would want to come back. We’ve seen amazing wildlife and how they hunt, dolphins, a small shark, schools of 🐟, sea shells, urchin. The “stop-over” island 🏝 , where we swam, seen different types of 🐠, and collected sea shells, is naturally beautiful with white sand beach. Scott brings the local knowledgeable and experience that brings fun and enjoyable experience. Highly recommended for family, kids, adults, and everyone!
