Paddle through magical mangrove tunnels at Don Pedro Island State Park with crystal clear water where you will float over starfish, sponges, upside down jellyfish, and live shells leading to a hidden lagoon that feels like your own private paradise. Or take an exciting Wildlife Adventure Tour or Snorkel & Paddle Tour at Stump Pass Beach State Park where our guides will help you discover all the beauty above and below the famously clear water. Another wonderful option is our Boca Grande guided tour where you can paddle part of the historic Great Calusa Blueway paddling trails.

All tours can be done by stand up paddle board, single kayak, or double kayak and a lesson is included before we launch.

If you are up for creating your own adventure all paddle boards, single & double kayaks can be rented by the hour, day, or week at our paddle shack which is open 7 days a week from 9-5 for walk up rentals. Located on the water at Cape Haze Marina we offer beautiful and calm paddling water right from our launch! Lots of manatees, dolphin, sea stars, and much more wildlife are often found right here in our marina basin so no need to paddle far for some excitement! We will give you a laminated map of the area with suggested routes clearly marked out and all rentals come with a land based lesson at the dock before you go and all safety equipment needed is included. We are the only company that will deliver a paddle board, kayak & beach bikes directly to your home or rental condo on Little Gasparilla Island, Don Pedro Island, and Palm Island.

“The Copper Avenue Gang”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

It was a beautiful day to be kayaking on the water. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We found it to be so educational and Ashley, our tour guide, was so friendly. We loved the Mangrove's and our visit to Don Pedro Island. We would definitely do this again.

“AWESOME!”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

I booked the Don Pedro SUP tour for my family and I who came for a visit from Michigan. I reside in the area but learned so many fun and interesting facts about our important ecosystem!!! Ashlee was AWESOME- gave a wonderful tour- answered all of our questions and provided us with memories that will last forever- thank you!! We saw lots of wildlife- starfish, upside down jellyfish and dolphins just to name a few. The boards we rented were beautiful, in great shape and really easy to handle- my aunt is hooked and wants to buy one ASAP ( I already purchased 2 from Hooked on SUP). Overall our tour was AWESOME!

Great kayak trip! Excellent guide through the mangroves, lagoon, waterway & out to the beach! We had such a good time with our family that we went back a month later and took our friends on the same tour.

“Wonderful morning.”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

We went in nature tour to Don Pedro park, using kayaks. Leader, Aishley was very knowledgable about local flora and fauna. No manatees on our day, but loads of dolphins, bald eagles, osprey. We were a bit late getting off as had to do some sort of radio recording, but I guess this was a one off, but were late back, so no time lost.
Tour was leisurely and fun, also informative.
Lunch was basic bought in sandwiches, on the beautiful island.
A fantastic 3 hours , would love to do this again if we ever return to the area.
