2 Hour Guided Kayak Tour  $40

(children 12 and under $25)

You start with a lesson (or a refresher for experienced paddlers) and then join your experienced guide on a guided tour through the calm, shallow, clear, near shore waters of Key West. You will glide through winding mangrove creeks and paddle through inches of water where you can easily view and learn about the geological structure of the Florida Keys along with its inhabitants, all from the comfort of your kayak. You’ll likely get up close with tropical fish, crabs, sea stars, jelly fish, sea cucumbers, sponges, birds, maybe even the occasional ray, nurse shark, manatee or dolphin! This fun tour has been featured in many publications including The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Rachel Ray Magazine and Dog Fancy and several books and guides.
