Self Guided Tours

We offer self guided tours, enjoy paddling at your pace for the duration you desire among mangrove islands, bird rookery habitat and plentiful marine wildlife including manatees and dolphins.  A descriptive waterproof chart is provided for guidance on your adventure.  This is suitable for both beginning and advanced paddlers.

We can deliver and pick up kayaks to our  beautiful kayak launch site located in Phillippi Creek Park (delivery fee may apply). This wonderful launch area has gazebos for lunch, restroom facilities and a kayak ramp that enters into a mangrove lined creek where wildlife abounds. The creek quickly enters into the Roberts and Sarasota Bay ecosystem. This launch site is just a minute or 2 from our store. If you prefer to take kayaks on your own, we will provide a roof top carrier at no charge.
