Owner description: Ibis Bay Paddle Sports is located at Ibis Bay Resort in Key West Florida. We offer SUP paddleboarding and clear bottom kayaking tours and rentals to all Key West visitors and locals.Kayak and SUP tours in Key WestChoosing the right spot for your kayaking or paddelboarding excursion is the most important thing to have a great experience on the water. 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!

Ibis Bay was easy to deal with- they gave us a quick demo on how to SUP and helped us get in the water and we were on our way. We just did a 1 hour rental, so the scenery was nice, but nothing amazing. SUPing was easier than I anticipated, and we had an enjoyable experience.

We found this spot to kayak and we delightfully surprised to find glass bottom boats. We spent and hour on the water and only paid $45 for three of us. It was incredible to see what was floating under our boats. Then we went and enjoyed their bar and pool even though we didn't stay there. Fun place but pricey food!

This was a fantastic trip. A group of five of us went for the nighttime stand-up paddleboarding tour with Pawel, whom we loved. He was an expert guide and had us up and paddling immediately. He's extremely knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna, and was clearly committed to preserving the beautiful nature in the area. During our tour the tide was very low, so Pawel would often hop into the water and point out lobsters, sea sponges, and anemones to us. The lights on the bottom of the boards allowed us to see everything on the bottom of the bay. One of our group members was slower than the rest, and Pawel would keep going back to her to make sure she was seeing all the sights and was comfortable on the board. The stand-up paddleboarding was our favorite experience of a four-day Key West trip, and we'd gladly do it again!

We had a great time with the paddleboards paddling around the mangroves - so we decided to return the next night for night kayaking. Mateo picked us up at our hotel both times, and was a great guide on the night kayaking. We saw lots of creatures that aren't out during the day, plus we got to see what some of the day creatures do at night. Both experiences were great - highly recommended, and we will return!

These guys are awesome. I stayed in town after a bachelor party to explore the island by myself and was looking for something to do. I called early in the AM and they said I was the only one on the 11am tour, but they would still take me out.

Dude picked me up at my hotel and took me back their gorgeous spot right on the water. Sand, a few benches, palm trees and a nice place to chill while you fill out the small bit of paperwork. Then we headed off to the site, where we paddled out into the ocean to find some conch, a stingray and a turtle. Then we headed into the mangroves for a relaxing cruise through trees and fish all over.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The guys were great. I will definitely take the night trip when I go back to Key West. Tip in advance and they will take care of you!

(by the way, SUP'ing is easy! You get a better vantage point for finding wildlife too).
