About ParadiseCoastKayakTours
All tours are PRIVATE. Just you me & yours. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY - I have OVER 20 YEARS EXPERIENCE- My truly unique experience will begin from the Cocohatchee River Park Launch site. We will paddle the wind and waves protected back waters of the tidal river to the Barefoot Beach Paddle Trail AND onward to Wiggins Pass to the beautiful sandy beach for a fun kayaking trip with a hint of adventure. I will take you on a mini adventure as if you were paddling in the 10,000 Islands. We will find our way through some mangrove tunnels & at one point I will hand you a map & you will guide me. The mapped trail is only 600 feet with 3 openings you must find. People love the interactive part of my tour. Please join me - IT'S FUN! Mike

Mike’s knowledge of the various “tunnels “ through the mangroves made the experience so interesting. He is an excellent instructor for the novice as the experienced kayaker. We will definitely book another day with him!

Took a two part lesson and a refresher session from Mike Devlin and was really impressed with how much he was able to teach me. I started out from a very basic understanding and Mike very patiently took me through all the key elements I needed to learn. Who knew it all started with the Low Brace!?! Our refresher session was a combined explore and lesson and included a bit of gulf kayaking, which was really fun. Mike is a great guy and was really fun to be with — he really energized me to continue my Kayaking journey.

Like the title suggests, we did this tour a long time ago and promised Mike we would leave him a review (because it was super awesome) We still to this day talk about this amazing and intimate tour we had with him, even though it almost got cancelled due to the lighting before we got there (and the rain. I hate rain) He kept in close contact with us and monitored the weather to make sure it was safe to go, and it was one of the best decisions we made in our life! We saw the most beautiful skies and a rare pink bird and he learned us some of te right techniques for kayaking. He is easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable, even if it’s your first time kayaking. We highly recommend this activity!! Greetings from Holland, Hans & Jereth

Mike Devlin of Paradise Coast Kayak Tours is an EXCELLENT instructor. Several members of my family wanted to learn all about kayaking and signed up for a series of lessons with him. Mike took them from total beginners to the point they were able to do advanced moves. The change in their skill level was amazing. What really impressed me is two of my teens were very hesitant about kayaking yet Mike was able to get them enthusiastic about learning because he made the lessons FUN. They said they love kayaking now. Mike not only has a lot more experience than most instructors, but he also has a passion for the sport which he conveys to his students. We met several of his advanced students and they all rave about Mike. So glad we found him.

Amazing morning through the mangroves with Mike! He’s a very knowledgeable guide and obviously has a great love for the Florida wildlife and kayaking. And a great sense of humor too!
