Wat je gaat doen

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 (6-8 guests) & 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. Please note: alcohol and pets are not permitted in the Preserve.

We had such a great time on our private tour with Ross. He was so great and engaging even the small kids loved the experience. I highly recommend doing this.

Ask if you want a single kayak. Otherwise, you get a double kayak. Enjoyed ti.e at beach. Wish we could have stayed longer. Guide was knowledgeable about area.

This was such an amazing experience & one I would love to do again next time I’m in the area. I already recommended it to a couple friends. Our guide was very thoughtful, never rushed us, and made sure everyone in the tour group was ok and checked in on us. The whole experience was just phenomenal! We went through the mangrove tunnel, saw tree crabs while in there. We also got to see dolphins and they swam right by our kayak at one point! Our guide was kind enough to let us detour and go kayak closer to them, such a cool experience! We also saw White pelicans, a bunch of other birds, and one of the the coolest parts was seeing shell preserve! Such a magical island that we got to get out and explore for a while! Thanks again for the amazing time! ❤️

Was a great place for first time kayaking. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. Got to see some awesome wildlife. The island we went to had the best seashells. Definitely going to be coming back.
