Enjoy a Clear Kayaking Adventure through the Shell Key Preserve— just outside of Tampa Bay & St. Pete Beach! 


Daytime Tours:

Along this paddle be on the lookout for manatee, dolphin, pelicans, starfish, conch, and other local marine life!

Our eco-guided Shell Key Preserve kayak tour has several picturesque stops along the way where you will hear a bit about local wildlife, marine life, and plant life! You will even have the opportunity to get up close to Florida’s natural mangroves and to hop out along a sandy shoreline or sandbar based on the tide!

Glow Tours:

Take a NIGHTTIME clear kayak adventure, featuring underwater LED lights in your clear kayak. Your tour guide will lead the way as we paddle through the waters of Shell Key Preserve while looking for wildlife, taking in the stars, and lighting up the water beneath you! The tour takes place in the darkness, and there may be some surprise visits from wildlife. We recommend wearing long sleeve and/or long pants, with bug spray underneath your clothing to deter mosquitoes.

This is an incredibly unique tour where we’ll search for manatee, fish, birds, and more with the LED lights igniting the water way as we paddle. These lights illuminate the waters under the kayaks. Your tour guide will lead the way on a true adventure through Shell Key Preserve.

Experience a once in a lifetime adventure underneath the stars!
