↠ ABOUT THE TOURS ↞

Take an adventure through Shell Key Preserve in a completely clear kayak in the Tampa Bay area! 

At Shell Key Preserve, you’ll paddle along mangroves, enjoy white sand beaches and sandbars, and search for incredible wildlife. Depending on the time of year, we see a variety of wildlife. In the summer months, keep your eyes peeled for a manatee or the beautiful pink Roseate Spoonbills. During the winter months, White Pelicans call the sandbars of Shell Key Preserve their home! Throughout the year, dolphins frolic in the crystal-clear waters of the preserve, and cormorants love to paddle alongside our tours. Even though we love showing our guests the wildlife within the preserve. Sightings are random and not guaranteed. Our Shell Key Preserve Clear Kayaks Tours take place in Tierra Verde, FL, right near St Pete Beach.

We also offer an evening Glow Tour of Shell Key Preserve. Our glow tours a unique nighttime adventure where you paddle through the preserve while our color-changing, waterproof LED lights illuminate the waters below your clear kayak.

Amazing

Jenna was an amazing tour guide. She paced the trip perfectly, keeping all of her guests close by - accurately assessing our paddling experience, and keeping us all interested in the ecosystems of the area! We got a beautiful evening and trip AND great insight into what goes into sustainability and why. It was clear that Jenna is an expert in the topic and she was great at sharing what she knows.We hope to go on this tour again, I know we'll see something new & different each time!

Loved It

Richard was a great tour guide for our kayak ride. He made the ride very trustworthy and fun, I even took off my life jacket as he made me feel very confident about the ride. The sunset experience was the best part of this kayaking ride - breathtaking indeed.

Great Adventure

While visiting from the Chicago area, my daughter, her boyfriend and I had an awesome kayaking experience with Raven. The weather was perfect and the water was calm. Raven always showed us as much as she could and knew a lot about the marine life and the history of the surrounding islands and waterways. Raven has a great sense of humor and is polite and super positive. It was a wonderful experience during our Spring break! Thanks!!!

A Must Do!

I had a great kayaking tour with our guide Alessia. She made the trip interesting because she found many sea creatures and shared her knowledge about each of them. And just as the trip was ending the highlight of our tour were the dolphin and her baby swimming around our kayaks.
