Try something new; experience a sunset on the water. The Sunset Tour is the perfect end to a Florida day. Enjoy a beautiful, shallow water sunset paddle through Shell Key Preserve. Float through the many mangrove tunnels (tide permitting) and watch the sunset across the water.

The Back Country Nature Tour is approximately 2 1/2 hours and consists of a beautiful shallow water paddle through Shell Key Preserve. We will explore several mangrove tunnels (tide permitting) as we get to know the inner workings of a fragile ecosystem. From there, we continue on, in search of dolphins and manatees. Along the way, we stop to stretch our legs on one of the keys or sandbars before the paddle back to the launch site.

The Self-Guided Tour is perfect for adventurers who want to create their own experience. We provide the kayaks at the launch site, and supply you with life jackets & all necessary equipment, including a map with key points of interest, such as mangrove tunnels (tide permitting), sandbars, and swim spots. You choose which sites to see, which routes to take, and how much time to spend. It’s a kayaking experience like no other in Pinellas County!

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.
