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.

Pricing and Other Information:

Tours are $49.50 per person no matter what kind of kayak ( single or double) you choose to use on the 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 FL sales tax or gratuity for your tour guide (generally at least 15%). 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.
