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.

“The best water sport company in Key West!”

My family of four signed up to do the nighttime kayak tour. We have been coming to Key West for 12 years now and have never seen any thing like this. The kayaks have a clear bottom that allows you to see under the water, which is awesome, but add on the led lights that illuminate the area under and around the kayak at night, and it makes for an outstanding experience.

Pawel, the guide, just made our excursion unforgettable. He didn't hesitate to jump off his paddleboard to make sure each of the 6 people in our group saw all of the sea life that was available. He made sure my husband got great pictures of all the different animals we saw, especially the 4 octopus and numerous crabs and lobster. He let my daughter hold one octopus and she will never forget that!

If you want a better water adventure, you must give this a try! Ibis Bay picked us up from our condo and brought us home, and Pawel gave us memories to last a lifetime!

“So amazing!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Well what can I say! Our leader Pawel was awesome and had great passion for his job he picked us up and took us to a nice beach and later we went out for a 1 hour 30 minutes kayak tour...did I mention the kayaks are clear on the bottom and if you do the night tour they put lights on the bottom and you can see everything! You also get to see the things that you can't see during the day like crabs, lobsters, and even octopus!! I strongly recommend doing this whenever you are in Key West! When I come back I will surely do this again!

“Freaking amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Paval( I know I spelled his name wrong) picked us up right on time. Took care of my new husband who couldn't swim and reassured
him he would be ok. And we were.
The lighted see through kayak were a nice treat. I had never seen one before. It was awesome seeing jellyfish crabs and lobsters just chilling. The flying fish was also a treat. This tour or the paddle board is a must do while in Key West!!!

“A Great Day on the Water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

The day time kayak tour was a great way to get out on the water and into the sun. The tour guide was very knowledgable about the local eco system, and gave lots of great information while out on the water. The wind was really kicking up for our tour, but the guide altered our route slightly so we would travel with the wind, still making for a great experience.

Next time I'm in Key West, I want to take the Night Time Tour. They use LED lights so you can see all the sea life through your glass bottom kayak. It sounds amazing

“Best night activity ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

We were a group of five. Our hotel concierge booked the night paddling adventure for paddleboards and glass bottom kayaks with LED lights. Guys from Ibis Bay picked us up at 8.30 from our hotel and before 9pm we were all on the water. What an AMAZING time... Colorful bottom of the bay full of sea cucumbers, starfish, lobsters and crabs. Our guide just kept finding amazing creatures and was making sure that everyone could see them. The LED lights illuminate everything around you and it's just amazing how clearly you can see everything. You have to try it!!!
