More about our Kayaking and Paddleboarding Tours:
WHERE DO WE GO?
This often asked questions is best answered by explaining that the wind, tides, and seasons are always changing. Thus the animals change and our boating conditions change. The back country of the lower Keys encompasses hundreds of square miles. The area that we access each day is based upon existing conditions to provide you with a most memorable experience.
WHAT YOU WILL SEE:
The back country is hundreds of mangrove islands separated by shallow water. The shallow water zone is, for descriptive purposes, divided into hard bottom and soft bottom biological communities. Channels, shoals, and human development further delimit the areas of plant and animal activity.
WHO CAN GO:
Sea Kayaking is a mild physical exercise that is not age restrictive. Normal health is sufficient and many persons with physical handicaps have enjoyed our trips. It is not necessary to be able to swim as life vests are supplied to everyone regardless of ability. The water we travel is for the most part quite shallow. Children, 9 years or older, who are accompanied by a parent or guardian, and who are interested in natural history are welcome. Dogs welcome on any kayak or paddleboard rental or tour EXCEPT the 4 hour tour.
