Naples Kayak Tours

Naples Top Ranked Kayak Tour!

Naples Kayak Tours

Our Naples Kayak Tours are award-winning, family-friendly, and are led by Florida Master Naturalist kayak guides. 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 kayak tours are small groups by design, only allowing up to 8 guests per kayak 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.

Manatees and Mangroves

Our Manatees and Mangroves kayak tour is our top-rated tour, and our company is considered the Top Rated Outdoor activity on TripAdvisor. No other kayak tour in Naples or Marco Island offers guests a better chance to spot bucket-list wildlife, such as manatees, river otters, and even black bears! Combine this route with our experienced kayak guides, and you will understand how we can offer our Satisfaction Guarantee! With optimal tide and wind, the tour would be considered a moderate activity, but it can become more difficult during strong north winds and during full and new moons. A full or new moon increases our tide swings combine a super low tide with a north wind, and this route will have less water.

For an easier, less strenuous route, choose our Rookery Bay Tour. The Rookery Bay route is the same route offered by multiple other companies but still is a great option if you want to relax and enjoy your time on the water.

Rookery Bay Tour$55, $65

2 hrs | 3-4 Miles | Ages 6 & up*

The kayak tour that started it all for us in Naples. This tour is our closest option to downtown Naples and Marco Island. This is our least strenuous tour and great for beginners, families, or guests not looking to drive deeper into the Everglades. This tour paddles through a few wider mangrove tunnels and multiple larger bays. Dolphins are spotted regularly here, along with many different bird species. This tour option is offered by numerous other companies, combine that with it’s proximity to Naples and Marco Island, you can expect to encounter other users here on the water. If you are looking for a more unique experience with less traffic, please check out our Manatees and Mangroves tour.

Manatees & Mangrove Tunnels$84

3 hrs | 4-5 Miles | Ages 6 & up

This is our top-rated tour offered by Naples’s top-rated tour company. Our group size is 25% smaller than any other group tour in the area. As of December 2022, we are the only company running this route. By doing this, we have limited the traffic coming and going through this area, giving each guest a better opportunity to spot wildlife and enjoy the Everglades in a truly serene atmosphere.

Rookery Bay Sunset Tour(Nov-April) $75

2.5 Hrs | 4-6 Miles | Ages 10 & up*

Not only do you enjoy all of the wildlife sightings involved in our kayak tours but you are rewarded at the end with a potentially breathtaking sunset. Sunsets have become one of our favorite scenes to photograph due to the spectacular colors produced by the water and the sky. Being located on the Gulf Coast doesn’t hurt either! This tour is more about setting ourselves up for a great vantage point for the sunset and usually paddles around 4 miles.
