Ang gagawin mo

For this guided eco kayaking adventure we will meet at a public launch site just North of Fort De Soto State Park. In order to provide a great experience for our guests, we focus exclusively on small groups (8 guests). We will provide all the necessary equipment, dry bags, and instruction before heading out. We use stable sit-inside kayaks which are more comfortable and easier to paddle than sit-on-top & clear kayaks. This allows us to explore more of the preserve at an easier pace and provides better wildlife viewing opportunities. Once we depart, we'll explore the various ecosystems of the Shell Key Preserve highlighting the beauty of this coastal habitat. We'll kayak through mangrove tunnels (tides permitting), over shallow seagrass meadows, and look for wildlife along the way. Once we reach Shell Island you will have time to swim, explore, look for shells, or just relax and enjoy the beauty of this uninhabited barrier island. The preserve is home to a variety of shorebirds, nesting sea turtles, dolphins, manatees and much more. It is a great way to get out and see the natural side of St Pete. Please note: alcohol and pets are not permitted in the Preserve.
Other things to note
Moderate physical activity required. We mainly use double kayaks, kids 3 and up are welcome with an adult for each child under 13. Kids under 13 must be in a double with an adult.

Kim did such an awesome job! She knew everyone’s name before we left for our adventure and had so many nice nuggets of information along the way. Thank you for a fun morning!

It had been raining a lot the week of our vacation, but we got lucky and got sunshine for our kayaking experience :) My husband who is nervous around deep water, and my son who is overly adventurous but too young (10), and I had an amazing time!! Our guide was super knowledgeable and easy to relate to; we laughed, talked, and asked many questions. My son won't stop talking about our kayaking adventure, and my husband is so proud of himself for not falling into the water, lol. We even saw a dolphin pod while we were on Shell Island! I would definitely book again or if this is your first time in St. Pete, this is very fun to do!!

This was our 2nd time booking with Ross & Doug, it was a great experience! We have 4 kids & they love learning about the wildlife & going through the mangroves. Shell Key Island is amazing & a perfect mid-trip break.

Our guide Kim was so amazing! Probably our top highlight of the vacation on the coast. If you’re looking at this as an option, stop looking and just book it. What amazing people in an amazing location!

My husband and I booked this trip along with our 12 year old daughter - we hadn’t kayaked in years and Doug’s instruction was incredibly helpful! He was very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife, which was an added bonus. The excursion itself was breathtaking and peaceful. A number of things have gone wrong on our trip but this morning was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have asked for a kinder, more knowledgeable, or funnier guide! Thank you!

We had a fantastic time, the tour was way more special than expected! For the price, you can’t beat it. The guide Kim was super nice and very informative about the wildlife. Meet up area was easy to get to. We got to see lots of animals like birds, fish, crabs, and even dolphins. We stopped for a swim and exploring on an island only accessible by boat and it was as if we had our own private beach. I couldn’t not recommend this tour enough!
