What you'll do

One of our guides (Chase, Jeremy, Christian, Jay, Amy, Paige, Alex, or Chris) will get you checked in right when you arrive to allow for the most possible time on the water! Once you're all checked in, we'll give some basic paddle instructions and information about the tour ahead. We'll get you loaded up into your clear kayak and off we go! The paddle will last about 2 to 2.5 hours depending on the speed of our group and any wildlife we may see along the way. 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) , the second half will be a paddle across the blue waters to Shell Key where we will take time to enjoy the pristine sandbars and beach, 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!

Amber

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 you to have an immersive perspective on the unique wildlife and nature we have here in Florida - I like to think of it as having the best window seat to the waters of Tampa Bay!

Where you'll be

Shell Key is an 1,800-acre preserve that protects sensitive marine habitats and includes one of the county's largest undeveloped barrier islands, as well as numerous mangrove islands and expansive sea grass beds. Shell Key has been designated as one of the state of Florida's most important areas for shorebird nesting and wintering and serves as an important study area for these species.
