Naples Kayak Company is Southwest Florida's premier kayak and stand up paddle board outfitter. Because we are affiliated with the top local outdoor store, Naples Outfitters, we turn over all of our rental equipment often so our kayaks and paddle boards are newer and nicer. We have experienced tour guides who are also kayak instructors. We work hard to make sure that you have a great time!

NKC gave the Milbank group a great experience with very knowledgeable guides who led the group carefully but with expert tuition (including marriag guidance for warring couples in double kayaks who couldn't quite coordinate their paddles or go in a straight line or avoid collision with mangroves). The guides' knowledge of the environment and of birdlife (which was plentiful) added... More

Being a newbee at kayaking it was great to have a guide to show us around the waters of the mangroves, Our guide Tom Long from Naples Kayak has a wealth of knowledge and expertise about getting around the mangroves, talking about the wild life and I felt safe having a guide.

We had a fantastic time. There were two couples and he spent a great deal of time with us, educating us about all of the different plants and wildlife in the area. It was a nice blend of exercise and education. We were most struck by how passionate Tom was about his job and that was pleasing to us all.... More

He is an excellent instructor, I always considered myself to be a fairly experienced paddler, however after 3 hours with Tom I have learned so much more and corrected several bad habits. I look forward to my next session. Thanks Tom

We had a fantastic lesson and paddle board tour of the mangroves and Gordon river with Jesse, who was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The weather was perfect and the bonus was sighting a manatee. Highly recommended for an excellent workout and way to experience the local environment, wildlife and natural resources of Naples.

We had a group of six volunteers from a local Chamber of Commerce who went out on the water with Tom Long for a great kayaking tour. We snaked among the mangroves back into a gorgeous tunnel while he told us all about the ecosystem. A trip well worth taking with a delightful guide.

Had a great time kayaking with Tom today. He was most helpful to this first time kayaker! Very informative guide and great route through the mangroves. Did not see dolphins but he did point areas that were potential sighting areas. Thank you a great afternoon! Will be back.
