Here at Ibis Bay we provide clear bottom kayak and SUP paddle board rentals on calm protected waters without any boat traffic. When you rent a kayak or paddleboard you will glide over diverse areas of interest - sandbars, mangroves and deep water channels. It makes a unique paddling adventure for anyone regardless of your skill or fitness condition. During your kayak trip you will see many of underwater spices. Stingrays, anemones, sea cucumbers, crabs and many more made their home here and will let you observe their daily life from your SUP or through the clear bottom of your kayak. We also provide top of the line guided kayaking and paddle boarding tours. For our day tour we will shuttle you to one of the most beautiful paddling trails in the Keys. You will spend around 3 hours on the water kayaking or stand up paddleboarding on the open ocean and through mangrove forests. All instructions are provided by our experienced guides so you can be confident in your kayak or on the paddle board. The fun doesn't stop at Ibis Bay. When the Sun goes down we are getting ready for night kayaking and SUP paddleboarding adventures. We attach 2000 lumens Nocaqua LED lights to the bottoms of our paddle boards and clear kayaks so you can experience night paddling like never before. Fish and crabs, octopus and stingrays follow our paddling illuminated tour to give you exclusive look at their nightly activities. We are the only company in Key West doing the night kayak and SUP tours the way they should be done. Forget the tiny lights on your head, forget the darkness around, don't worry about the heat, you're not gonna need the sunscreen for that one too. Call us before 5pm and book your night paddling adventure with Ibis Bay Paddle Sports. Night paddle tours in Key West is a must!

“Family adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2014

We were impressed by our guide and his knowledge of the area's habitat. Our guide made this family adventure both fun and educational! We had our 12yr old son with us and he loved the entire thing! He wants a Kayak of his own now! It was something I had not ever done, so I was a little scared Kayaking for the first time at night, and in the ocean (even if it was just around the shallow reef) but our guide was so calm and so knowledgeable that he put us at ease. If I am lucky enough to go back to Key West, I will do it again! Thank you Pavel, you showed us so much and took the time to make sure you educated us on the wildlife and habitat. I cannot rave enough about this adventure, we had a great time!!

“Night Kayaking--AWESOME!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2014

The night glass bottom kayaking trip was spectacular! Our tour guide was amazing and very knowledgable regarding the local marine life. We saw lots of sea cucumbers, jellies, stone crabs, lobsters, needlefish, and even an octopus! Such a great, relaxing experience. Get there early for dinner at the Stoned Crab...or eat after. Tour itself is an hour and a half.

“We made the right choice! Best way to jet ski!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2014

My family and I took a trip to the keys last week. My mother, uncle, aunt, and myself. We had been looking into Jet Ski rental at a few different places but were so happy we decided to choose Ibis Bay! Not only do you rent by jet ski, not by rider, but it was the best offer we found. $130plus tax per ski for a 27 mile loop around Key west. We ended up taking 2 out and followed our guide around the beautiful island. His name was Dorian and he was AWESOME! Very friendly and helpful. Also stopped maybe 5 times where he had some pretty cool facts to tell us about. On shore a guy named Lee who is also a guide was very helpful as well. I hope to go back and would recommend the experience to anyone.
