Only a true local can show you the hidden gems you would miss and introduce you to unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experiences: viewing a rocket launch from over the water, a sunset date-night accompanied by dolphins and manatees as the sun sets, the stars shine, and the full moon rises above the mangroves. From late Spring to early Fall, bioluminescent kayaking tours offer a truly otherworldly experience, while your paddle lights up fireflies of the sea under the twinkling stars.
We have guided kayaking tours long enough to know how to provide you with a level of comfort and safety while still testing your kayaking boundaries. Our kayak trips are designed so paddlers with limited kayaking experience, (or even with no prior kayak experience) can fully participate while the expert kayakers can still be challenged.
Our philosophy on kayak travel is that exploring the world from a kayak allows us a unique entry into a different country, culture, and way of life unlike any other. We are viewed by “locals” not as tourists, but as adventurers and explorers. On our kayaking trips, you will see different lifestyles and ultimately question your own. The answers you derive from our destination kayaking trips may make you appreciate what you may have or question your need for some aspect of life. Either way, you will walk away a different person.
Our chief adventurer, Tom Warren, is a native Floridian and is proud to tell you his family can be traced back to 1789 in Florida. After spending way too many years driving a desk doing accounting and finance, he now boasts “I’ve worked all my life to finally get a job where my uniform is a tee-shirt and pair of boardshorts”. Having a relaxed and easy-going personality, Tom shares stories of prior guests (no names mentioned) tells you about the critters and plants that make each environment unique and how they work together to create the entire mosaic of life. Conservation and education about it are especially important to Tom and he is proud to say he is a Certified Florida Naturalist. As a professional guide for the last ten or so years, Tom has not lost anyone on any of his hundreds, if not thousands of tours…yet.
