We are very sorry to tell you that until further notice, our Rookery Bay tour is suspended.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is not allowing the public or tour operators access to the end of Shell Island Road, where we launch this tour into Rookery Bay.  The DEP is still cleaning debris left in the waters of Henderson Creek, Rookery Bay and Hall Bay resulting from Hurricane Irma, which they say makes the waters unsafe.  As soon as possible we will resume this tour.  Please check this web page periodically for updated information.  We still offer tours at the Isles of Capri and Wiggins Pass, as well as our Sea Kayak tours into the Ten Thousand Islands.  Thank you for your interest in our guided tours!

You can book a Rookery Bay Kayak Tour right NOW on our L IVE booking software sytem, on the calendar below. Just click on the date that you wish to go and book away. All credit card information is secure.

Rookery Bay is one of the last pristine Mangrove forests and is protected by the Rookery Bay Nature Preserve. Over 150 different species of birds and fish were either born or live in this Mangrove estuary. Manatees, Dolphins and dozens upon dozens of different shore and wading birds can be seen. Shorter, more stable boats are used on this tour and are great for taking pictures with. Making sure to have some way to protect any cameras from the water are recommended though. Join us today on the Rookery Bay Kayak Tour!

Duration is 2.5 hours and is a slow paced laid back nature watch style paddle. Please note that this price does NOT include gratuity for your tour guide (generally at least 18%). If, for some reason you do not feel that the guide deserves a gratuity, PLEASE let us know at napleskayakcompany@gmail.com

Tours leave at 9am or 12:30pm. Generally there is a better chance of a greater abundance of Wildlife being on the water earlier as less people on on the water disturbing them.
