Manatees & Mangroves

9:00am, 1:30pm

3 Hours | 8 Guests per tour | $78

Our number one selling tour, there is no other kayak route or company in Naples and Marco Island that offers a better opportunity to spot such a variety of wildlife. Manatees and Mangroves are not even half of what this tour offers. Guests will visit numerous ecosystems, including the Salt-marsh, a heavily visited feeding ground for Wood storks, White Ibis, Tricolored Herons, and the super rare Rosette Spoonbill. As kayakers venture deeper into the 10,000 Islands Wildlife Refuge, they will encounter the most extensive and complete Mangrove tunnels this county has to offer, paired with an opportunity of spotting river otters, bears, and dolphins. Simply put, this is the best kayak experience availably to spot abundant while, in a pristine, one of a kind environment while being safely led by our professional, experienced, and always friendly

The tone of the below statement might be off-putting, but we are serious about staying on schedule. Our guests expect our tours to start and finish on time, but that is not possible if one person ignores the below steps.

If you decide to book a tour with Adventure Paddle Tours we have entered into an agreement.  You expect us to be on time and completely prepared with our quality gear and guides, but this is a two-way agreement. By booking a kayak tour you too have agreed to arrive on time with the correct number of guests. We will hold up to our end of the bargain and we beg you to do the same. If only one customer shows up late to a 9 am tour, it can potentially affect every single other guest booked for that day. Our guides have set breaks between tours. We often eat lunch and walk our dogs during those breaks, so at the very least if a tour starts late and returns late, Fido will not get his daily walk! Please, be on time for Fido!

Guests are asked to arrive 15 minutes early

If you book a flight at 9 am are you going to arrive at the terminal at 9 am? I don’t think so
