Get Up and Go Kayaking Tampa Bay

Take an adventure to Shell Key Preserve in a completely clear kayak – just outside of Tampa Bay and St. Pete Beach!

Along this paddle be on the lookout for manatee, dolphin, pelicans, starfish, conch, and other local marine life!

Our eco-guided Shell Key Preserve kayak tour has several picturesque stops along the way where you will hear a bit about local wildlife, marine life, and plant life! You will even have the opportunity to get up close to Florida’s natural mangroves and to hop out along a sandy shoreline or sandbar based on the tide!
We have daytime and sunset tour options available daily!

Our Shell Key Preserve kayak tour departs in Tierra Verde, FL just behind Billy’s Stone Crab Restaurant. You will have access to restrooms during restaurant business hours, experience more wildlife viewing from the docks, and can grab a bite to eat before or after their tour right on site!
