Qué vas a hacer

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.
Other things to note
Moderate physical activity required. We mainly use double kayaks, kids 3 and up are welcome with an adult for each child under 13. Anyone under 13 must be in a double kayak with an adult. Weight limit is 240lbs per seat | 450lbs combined for Doubles. No alcohol is permitted.

We really enjoyed the experience. On this adventure we saw multiple dolphins, shark, mullet fish, white pelicans, brown pelicans, a heron, jellyfish, double-breasted cormorants, mangrove tunnels, and swam in the beautiful water around Shell Key. Definitely enjoyed the 3 hour kayak tour.

Our kayak tour with these guys exceeded our expectations. Our guide was fantastic and so knowledgeable about the surroundings, which is very important for an eco tour. The pace of the kayaking was very steady without being boring, and we especially appreciated the stop at Shell Island for exploration and taking in the natural surroundings. This was the beat outing we have gone on and anyone considering this kind of activity should definitely book with Ross and his crew! And if you aren’t considering this kind of activity, you should!

Ross and team are fantastic. Don’t think twice, book your kayak adventure with them today! Great value and so much fun. I was anxious and nervous I would tip or my shoulders would get tired and I’d be stranded in the water - they were so nice making sure I felt safe and showing me how to be as balanced as possible in the kayak. Great directions given through the whole tour. We felt so safe too because all the guides wore masks when near us and the group was limited to 8 people (not just in covid times) so it felt intimate and safe. The whole experience was beautiful - we saw dolphins at the sandbar playing in the wake of boats ❤️ - and so peaceful just being out on the water and enjoying the birds flying by and swimming next to the boat. Can’t wait to come back and do this again!
