    Stop: 2 hours
    We'll get you checked in right when you arrive to allow for the most possible time on the water! Once you're all checked in, we'll give some basic paddle instructions and information about the tour ahead. We'll get you loaded up into your clear kayak and off we go! The paddle will last about 2 to 2.5 hours depending on the speed of our group and any wildlife we may see along the way. We will be sure to take plenty of pictures and give some awesome unique facts about the area on our several picturesque stopping points! There will even be a couple chances for you to get out and explore Florida's unique marine habitats! The first half of the paddle will be along side of the beautiful mangroves with our first stop being a mangrove tunnel (tide permitting), the second half will be a paddle across the blue waters to Shell Key where we will take time to enjoy the pristine sandbars and beach, finally we will paddle along the wildlife sanctuary to catch a glimpse of some native coastal birds! Be ready for lots of great local nature and wildlife along the way!

10/10 would recommend. I've only been kayaking a few times, but this was well worth the sore arms. Got to see manatees and dolphins, so that was super cool. Our guide Ben was absolutely amazing. Very knowledgeable, and super sweet. But beware, he paddles fast. Definitely loved the Shell Key Beach portion. It was really cool to be able to swim in both the Gulf and the preservation. And the shell finding was fun. Definitely will be back with friends!

Wow! This was by far the best part of our Florida Vacation time. Chris was an amazing guide, was very knowledgeable, and really took care of our tour group. He was conscientious about the weather and kept us safe, while still letting us see amazing sights. We went was a family with our two sons (9 and 11), and we all had a fantastic experience. Cant recommend higher!

It was a great tour. The Shell Key Preserve is amazingly beautiful with lots of wild life animals. We even saw 6 dolphins during our tour (not normal so we were very lucky). Our tour guide Alessia was the best! She is super nice, knowledgeable and spent the time to explain all the wild lives to us. Alessia also took pictures and videos for us. Our family including our 10 yr old really enjoyed the tour. Thank you Less!

Jenna was a fantastic guide. Clearly passionate and knowledgeable about the environment, showed us a ton of wildlife we would have otherwise overlooked like an upside-down jellyfish and a starfish, and was overall just laid back and fun. Highly recommend this trip with Jenna.

Our guide Ben was very fun, friendly and knowledgeable. I loved the clear kayak tour - saw several species of birds and dolphins popped up out of the water right next to us. Very cool.

Very knowledgeable guide. We brought our own snorkel/mask and loved getting out at the sandbar to swim and hunt for shells and sand dollars!
