Here are some commonly asked questions about our Guided Kayak Nature Tours and Guided Paddle Board Tours

-What is the process for booking my Guided Kayak Nature Tour? Simply decide which tour you would like to participate in and then click the calender on the day and time that you wish to participate. You will get a confirmation email after you book and a reciept of paynment for your tour.Your tour guide will contact you the evening prior to your tour and provide his/her cell # and make sure that you know everything that you need to know.

-Is it common to give a gratuity to my guide? It is certainly customary in the United States to give a gratuity to service personel who have done a good job, just as you would at any other venue. Remember that your tour guide is checking the weather and tide, loading and unloading the kayaks and working hard to find wildlife on your kayak tour or paddle board tour. All of this is in addition to the significant investment in training and equipment that our professional guides have put forth.

-Are there alligators? There are alligators in Florida. We don't really provide tours in areas that would have any real population of gators. Remember also that gators really just want to eat, sleep and make more gators. They usually eat things like fish and turtles.

-What should I wear? Ideally you should protect your skin from the sun, either with Sun block or sun protective clothing. Sun protective hats and clothing are available in our retail store, Naples Outfitters at 2360 Shadowlawn Drive in Naples.

-Do you have single and double kayaks? We have both. When you book your tour the booking software will ask you if you would like singles or doubles.

-Are life jackets provided? Always. In fact, on nature tours our guide will require you to wear one.

-What if we have never paddled before? Our guides are also instructors. Your tour will be a beginner lesson and a tour!

-What if it rains? There are quite a few months in SW Florida that getting rained on can be just wonderful. However, you guide has been checking the weather carefully in an attempt to avoid lightning. If we can't go for safety reasons, or if it will be just too wet then we will gladly refund your money.

Please note that our hours of operation are the retail store hours. Complete tour times are listed on the Naples Kayak Company website.

Our guide Tom kept my two teenage boys interested on our 3 and a half hour kayak around the mangroves and that's not easy! He was informative about kayaking itself and very knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife and the mangroves. Great trip if a little tiring towards the end.

My daughter and I decided to take an adventure with Tom from Naples Kayak. We had a blast. Not only was it fun, but The guides made it educational and we learned a lot about the wildlife, mangroves, and the ecological system in the Everglades. I would recommend this kayak tour to anyone, whether a resident or a visitor!👏👏👏

If you enjoy making memories with your family, we would definitely recommend. It's nice to get the kids away from the electronics, too, and see nature up close. Thanks, Mr. Bob, for a... More

Fantastic tour with a very knowledgeable guide! The Naples Kayak Company is a well organized outfit, geared towards every type of kayaker. They favor the more adventuresome parts of the tour like really cool mangrove tunnels which is what we enjoyed the most. Floating through the quiet of God's world and observing His creations while learning about how it works... More
