What you'll do

One of our guides (Chase, Jeremy, Christian, Jay, Amy, Paige, Alex, or Chris) will get you checked in, give you a paddling overview and info about the tour ahead. We'll get you loaded up into your tandem clear kayak and off we go! The paddle will last about 2 hours, and we will be sure to take plenty of pictures and give some awesome unique facts about the area on our several picturesque stopping points!

There will even be a couple chances for you to get out and explore Florida's unique marine habitats! The first half of the paddle will be along side of the beautiful mangroves with our first stop being a mangrove tunnel (tide permitting). Next, we will paddle across the clear waters to Shell Key where we will take time to enjoy the pristine sandbars and beach while taking in the beauty of the sunset, finally we will paddle along the wildlife sanctuary to catch a glimpse of some native coastal birds! Be ready for lots of great local nature and wildlife along the way! The only way to experience the beauty of Shell Key is from the water and the best way to experience it is in a clear kayak!

Being born and raised in Florida, I've always had an appreciation for nature - specifically the ocean. Spending more than 20 years in the Tampa Bay area, I've swam and interacted with just about all marine life imaginable; it gave me an incredible appreciation for the beauty below the water. Being a Girl Scout, EMT, lifeguard, and now physician assistant this gives me the unique ability to combine all the things I love into one experience.

Which is why I decided to bring Get Up And Go Kayaking to Tampa Bay! Clear kayaking allows an immersive perspective on Florida's unique wildlife and nature - I like to think of it as having the best window seat to the waters of Tampa Bay!

Unfortunately we did not get to see dolphins but the experience was still great. We did get to see a seahorse, birds, and snails. I really enjoyed being able to look for shells to take home and the sunset was beautiful. Chase was an amazing guide with a vast knowledge of the wildlife and plant life.

We enjoyed the kayaking, location, and stopping on Shell Key to look for sand dollars. We were a bit surprised that they were double-kayaks, because I didn't remember reading that anywhere - though I have may missed it, but it worked out well for me (because my husband did most of the paddling;) Our guide, Jeremy, was very nice and made sure to go at a good pace for everyone! We really enjoyed the food at the put-in spot as well, I believe it was Billy's Stone Crab. Nice experience for two couples from the Midwest!
