Kayak Tours in Naples, FL

Founded in 2009, Adventure Paddle Tours provides award-winning, family-friendly, Florida Master Naturalist kayak tours based in Naples, Florida.  Our 100% Satisfaction guaranteed kayak tours are true eco-tours, launching from the best kayak routes within 20 minutes of Naples and Marco Island. Our Florida kayak tours are small groups by design, only allowing up to 8 guests per tour. These small group numbers tend to sell out, but provide our guests with the most enjoyable kayak experience possible while allowing for a more hands on interaction between our guests and guides. 

We are proud to be one of two kayak operators permitted to offer kayak tours in the Fakahatchee State Preserve on the East River, a truly one of a kind experience, kayaking through the most extensive mangrove tunnel system in the Naples area. Currently, we offer tours in Rookery Bay, the 10,000 Islands, and the Fakahatchee State Preserve. Each Tour has specific highlights like manatees and alligators or birds and blue crabs. Please take the time to read through each tour so you can make the best decision for you and your family.

Our most unique kayak tour, The East River Fakahatchee State Park kayak tour is the quintessential backcountry experience in South Florida.

This tour allows you to disconnect from the crowded roads and truly immerse yourself in a nature and wilderness experience. As the largest state park in Florida, the Fakahatchee State Park park is rooted in conservation and preserving the natural land Southwest Florida has to offer.

There is zero development in the area minus the dirt road used to access the water. There are four major components to the park – The East River Canoe Launch, the Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk, the Jones Grade Lakes, and Janes Memorial Scenic highway.

We offer our guided kayak eco-tours out of the East River canoe launch, where for 3.5 hours you can explore the most unique backwater kayaking routes of Collier County.
