Searching for kayak tours on Marco Island? Ditch the crowds and join Adventure Paddle Tours to spot more wildlife, and have more fun, minutes from Marco Island. With fewer people, you will spot more Manatees, Alligators, Dolphins, and an unbelievable amount of birds.  Hands down there is no other Kayak Tour near Marco Island where you will find more wildlife and fewer people, or your money back!

Our kayak guides are year-round career naturalists, not seasonal college students or interns.

We have always provided small group kayak tours offering a maximum of three timeslots throughout the day. These limited numbers increase wildlife sightings yet limit our visitor numbers. You won’t hear voices from a competing tour or fight for a parking space here.

Since 2009 we have focused on quality over quantity. This means by design we see fewer guests and have fewer reviews on most digital platforms, but don’t let that fool you we are proud to say

 98% of our online reviews are 5 out of 5 stars, and the other 2% are 4 out of 5 stars!

I didn’t come close to those types of scores in college!
