50/50 Tour (Half-Rental)

  • $25 per person
  • Equipment: kayak, life jacket, whistle, paddle, and map
  • up to 3 hours
  • Single and tandem kayaks available. Additional time may be purchased. Call for pricing.

The 50/50 Tour is 50% guided, 50% self-guided, and 100% ideal for people who want it all. You get an expert guide to show you through the mangrove tunnels (tide permitting), and time your adventure just right to give you the best possible chance at seeing dolphins & manatees who only visit the area at certain times of the day. You also get time to continue your adventure on your own, whether that means swimming, exploring Shell Key, or kayaking through more of the preserve with our custom map. It’s truly the best of both worlds! Keep in mind our tours & rentals take place in a shallow saltwater preserve. There are no alligators, and most of the water is knee to waist-deep; perfect for both beginners and experts. Call or text (727) 490-8211 to schedule your adventure.
