$34 for a Guided Kayak Eco-Tour for One ($69 Value)
Seasoned guides transport paddlers on one of three routes:
- Three-hour tour of Estero Bay
- One-way, 2.5-hour paddle down Imperial River
- 2.5-hour sunset trip
A premium kayak-guided Eco tour with a guide helps locate sea creatures to view from the bottom of the Estero Bay. Animals such as manatees, dolphins, and bald eagles are among the many creatures that can be seen during the tour as the guide identifies things such as sea grasses while going over some of the area's history.
Though Adventures Kayaking founder Glenn has fished the Arctic Circle and helmed charter boats across Lake Michigan, the seasoned captain likes kayaking best. That’s because the small, sleek vessels grant Glenn access to Florida’s secluded backwaters and estuaries, which are inaccessible by boat. Now, Glenn and his guides impart not only their expertise on kayaking technique, but lead tour groups to the best spots on the Calusa Blueway for spotting wildlife or nabbing fish. Guides happily tailor tours to suit each group's skill levels and furnish kayaks with storage bags, coolers, and bottled water to ensure the tour remains a comfortable experience. En route, they’ll even snap pictures of groups as they glide across waterways and attempt to dodge photo-bombing manatees.
