We offer a great variety of guided Paddleboard and Kayak Tours in the Lee County area. There are countless possibilities of places to explore, each with different features and attractions. Guided Tours are a great way to get the kids out on the water and let them experience all the cool sights and the fun to be had in nature. In addition to our daily tours available at our Bunche Beach location, off site tours are available by reservation.
What To Bring
All of our tours include Kayaks / Paddleboards and all necessary gear for the paddle. We do recommend that you bring:
- Bottled Water
- Bathing suit or shorts you don’t mind getting wet
- Flip flops, sandals, or water shoes
If you would like you may bring a camera as well (there will be many photo opps.) but we recommend a waterproof camera or an inexpensive camera in a dry bag. Your guide will bring a camera with them on guided tours and take photos, which we then post to our Facebook page. You can then view them there, and share them with your friends and family. There is no charge for this. Please see below or contact us for more information and pricing on Guided tours.
Custom Guided Tours
If none of our scheduled tours work into your timeframe, we can also provide customized tours which depart at a time and location of your choice and can be anywhere from 1 hour to all day in duration. These Tours are priced depending on the number of kayakers and duration of the trip. Please contact us directly for more information, pricing, or to book any custom tours.
descriptions & rates
Guided Kayak Eco Tour $55
Come paddle with us and enjoy the sights and sounds that make southwest Florida such a special place. Our Eco tours depart daily at 10AM year round from our Bunche Beach location, and at additional times and other locations by request, with each location providing a unique setting. Paddle through mangrove tunnels, explore shallow bays, cruise along the beach, all while taking in the wide variety of wildlife. Frequent sightings include Dolphins, Manatee, Turtles, Rays, Bald Eagles, Osprey, Roseate Spoonbills, Egrets, Herons, Plovers, and many more.
Guided Kayak Sunset Tour $55
Our Guided Sunset Tours are available daily by request, and depart from our Bunche Beach location about 3 hours before sunset. The Sunset Tour is similar to our Eco Tour, except for the timing.
Guided Kayak Manatee Tour $65
We offer Manatee sighting tours year round, and see manatee regularly on many of our other tours. Our Manatee Tours focus more specifically on these gentle giants, though we often do see other wildlife on these tours as well. When the water temperatures in the gulf drop suddenly due to a cold front, Manatees congregate in the warmer waters slightly inland, and make for an incredible close encounter with these gentle and fascinating animals. Weather conditions play a great role in how many Manatees will be present and therefore how many Manatees we might expect to see, so if you are interested in one of these Tours, please contact us and we will be able to make recommendations on timing these Tours.
Guided Kayak Moonlight Tour $65
Imagine for a moment the peacefulness of gliding along on a Kayak at dusk, watching the birds go to roost, seeing the sun setting over the water and night time taking over. Every Saturday evening closest to the full moon we go on a full moon paddle, which begins about an hour before sunset. We enjoy the beautiful scenery in anticipation of another stunning south Florida Sunset over the Gulf. After the sun sets, nighttime sets in and changes the atmosphere completely. There is not a sound to be heard. The moon illuminates the landscape and gives it a beautiful glow. It might well be one of the most peaceful experiences you will ever enjoy.
Guided SUP (Stand up Paddleboard) Tour $50
These tours include a quick lesson for those who have never tried SUP before. We start on Rock Creek, which is a very calm waterway and therefore ideal for getting the hang of this easy to learn sport. This is a great way to get your feet wet if you're looking to get into SUP, or just to explore our beautiful area in a fun relaxing way! Tours last approximately 1 - 1.5 hours.
SUP Yoga $30
Available on the 3rd Sunday of the month and other times by reservation. These Classes are multi level, which means they're appropriate for beginners and experts alike. After a short paddle to a calm, quiet cove, we have a Yoga class on our boards. Duration is 1 hour.
If our online booking shows no availability for your time frame, please call (239) 297-7011 for immediate assistance. We often have extra kayaks or SUPs available that we can book for you. If you prefer, you can also make reservations by phone with a credit card.

Additionally, cancellations with less than 2 hours notice will be charged the full amount of the cost of the tour.
