Cosa farete

We are Shell Key's #1 kayak tour. We provide 2 guides on every tour to ensure your safety and enjoyment. Upon arrival, guests will be offered a paddle instruction, making this experience perfect for both experts and first-timers. We use comfortable sit-inside kayaks and paddle at a leisurely pace through the preserve while I tell about the local history, and wildlife & nature we find along the way. Depending on tidal conditions, we will explore one or more of the hidden mangrove tunnels tucked away in the preserve. Approximately half-way through the tour, we will stop at one of several possible landing sites at the island of Shell Key to stretch our legs, swim, snorkel, or collect shells. After enjoying the island, we will make our way back through the preserve, possibly visiting areas or tunnels we did not see before, always keeping a watchful eye out for dolphins, manatees, and the many species of birds that live in the area. We will arrive back at the launch site approximately 3 hours after launch time.
Other things to note
Contact me before booking if you need a tandem kayak. Anyone under the age of 12 must be in a tandem with an adult. Children 3 and older are welcome on the tour. If you have any questions or are interested in larger groups or other dates, please call, text or Facebook message us before reserving.

Hi, We're Scott & Karissa, owners & guides at Island Kayak Adventures. We're a local, family-owned and operated kayaking company. We specialize in guided eco kayak adventures in Shell Key Preserve. Airbnb has so graciously invited us to be a part of their website as an alternative to the more expensive kayaking tours. We believe in paying it forward! I grew up in Pinellas County, and have been boating, fishing, and kayaking at Shell Key Preserve since I was a kid. Growing up here in St. Pete has allowed me the opportunity to accumulate the knowledge and experience at Shell Key Preserve that no other kayak company can offer. Our goal is to share the natural beauty of the preserve with you in a safe & environmentally friendly way while giving you the best experience possible. Check out our reviews on Trip Advisor, Facebook, and Google.

Dove ti troverai

Tours take place in Shell Key Preserve. As a native Floridian, I will guide you through the backcountry of the preserve. Through shallow grassy meadows we go, watching fish jump and birds hunt; all the while, ducking through the mangrove tunnels (tide permitting) and allowing time for pictures and explanations of the surrounding habitat. Most of the area we paddle in is typically only frequented by locals and is off-limits to motorized vessels.

Before this experience, I had never been kayaking before so I was trepidatious about it going in. I’m not a strong swimmer but it put me at ease that the preserve never got deeper than a few feet. My husband also had never been kayaking but he is very adventurous and feels comfortable on the water. I was really surprised at how easy it was to get a hang of using the paddle and how quickly I relaxed into the experience. I feel really fortunate that we found a guide who is so familiar with the area and knowledgeable about the wildlife and plants/vegetation that we saw. He had lots of great antidotes from previous trips out and was very personable, as was his wife, who goes out on the tours also. I would definitely go out with them again if we get to come back for a visit and I would recommend the experience, even for a novice like myself.

WOW! This was the best experience hands down during our whole vacation. It felt like we were kayaking with lifelong friends, not just guides! Scott and Karissa were so willing to share their passion and knowledge during the experience. They could seriously charge twice as much. Scott was so kind and gave great instructions, and Karissa was so personable. Communication was above and beyond before during and after. You’ll get the best experience with them because they take time to take you through the mangroves and out to a private beach within three hours. There was no rush and we just had the best time :) look no further, you’ve found the best kayaking experience south Florida has to offer.

We had an amazing time and highly recommend booking a kayak adventure with them! They were also very knowledgeable and we learned a lot on our excursion!
