Kayak Adventure of Shell Key Preserve & Island with a Local

2 reviews
You get an expert guide (Scott or Thai, father & son team) to show you through the mangrove tunnels (tide permitting) and time your adventure just right to give you the best chance at seeing dolphins & manatees who only visit the area at certain times of the day. You also get time to explore Shell Key, whether that means shelling, swimming, snorkeling, or simply enjoying the view. Keep in mind our tours take place in a shallow saltwater preserve. There are no alligators, and most of the water is knee to waist-deep; perfect for both beginners and experts. Growing up here in St. Petersburg has given me more experience in Shell Key than any other kayak company. Kayaking is one of my favorite things to do. This has allowed me the opportunity to find all the best kayaking spots and to accumulate the local knowledge to give you a true Florida experience, something other kayak companies just can’t do. I started this kayaking company to share these places with you.

I rented the 18' Sea Hunt Center Console on Sunday 10/18/2020 and I was not disappointed. First off the price was amazing for the quality of fishing boat you get. We caught so many fish that we came back to the marina to the bait shop next door and got more bait. The workers at the marina are very friendly and helpful. In addition, they know how to dock and secure boats. If you are not prepared to have a boat payment but want to get on the water on a regular basis this is the way to go. Excellent experience all around. Will definitely be a repeat customer. Dan

To: Marina & Sarah, Our rental experience at Tierra Verde Boat Rentals exceeded all expectations. First, when making the phone reservation, we were delighted to be speaking with Marina, whose infectious enthusiasm and energy was captivating. Even as we endured the mandatory caveats regarding the safe, and legal operation of the waverunners, she managed to convey the required information while reinforcing the absolute "blast" we were going to have. As we walked the pier toward the jet dock we were joined by Sarah, who's supportive role became apparent as she helped with the adjustments of the life jackets, described the features and benefits of the waverunners, the functionality of the start-stop, and the in & out venturi thrust lever. The girls also provided us with a "dry box" for phones, wallets, etc. as well as a laminated map of the surrounding waterways, and advised that there is gps tracking on each waverunner. It was clear to us, these were competent, professional, experienced attendants - who just also happened to be personable, engaging, and delightfully, genuinely nice. Ours was a great experience, and we will certainly repeat. Many thanks to the dockside team that connected to make our rental, a value - greater than the price. Respectfully, Dan

We had a nice time on the boat but for the amount of money they charged, we were very disappointed in the quality of the boat. We don’t expect the boat to be perfect (after all it is a rental) but most of the seat cushions were coming apart at the seams with foam showing, the outside of the boat was stained and generally speaking the boat is probably only worth about 10x what we paid for a single 6hr rental. If you are charging a premium price for boat rentals, your customers should have a right to expect premium boat care. As long-time and repeat customers of renting boats from you, this last experience will make us think twice before renting here again.

Hi there, we're sorry that you weren't satisfied by the quality of our boats. While it's definitely true that they're well-loved, we do keep them clean and safe for all rentals. We're also proud to say that we offer the most affordable rentals in the area, and we do that while still providing boats that are well-maintained, tidy, and safe. Unfortunately some wear and tear happens, and we're sorry that it overshadowed the fun day that you had on the water. But our boats are always being updated and refurbished, so if you do decide to rent with us again, we hope that your next trip leaves you more satisfied! Thanks so much for renting with us and taking the time to leave a review!

It was a great experience from the initial phone call where I asked general questions to the time where I docked the boat after spending the day at egmont key. The prices were fair, the service was excellent and the boat was clean. I will be going back.
