Manatee Guides' conservation-minded experts escort kayakers throughout Southwestern Florida's waterways to observe manatees and other native species in their natural environments. During nature tours, guides lead guests throughout Estero Bay and the Orange River, scouring the crystalline waters for a sight of the peaceful animals. Guides point out local flora and fauna along the way, sharing interesting facts about their life cycles, social patterns, and affinity for fast food cheese-barnacles. Manatee Guides' owners and operators adhere to a strict conservation policy, leaving no trace of their journey in the wild. Up to 12 people venture out on each tour, and the guides encourage ample sunscreen and protective apparel such as a hat, shoes, and clothes that can get wet without melting.

Situated in the midst of a wildlife-rich preserve on the Lee County coast, Kayak Excursions, based at Bunche Beach, doles out an arsenal of paddleboards and kayaks for fishing, sightseeing, or motorized water-skimming. Guides lead sightseers out on three-hour tours that pass by lush mangrove forests, salt flats, sandy beaches, and sirens holding band practice in secluded coves. The densely populated waters of southwest Florida open their cache of sea candies to wide-eyed fishermen, who can paddle out to cast lines for snapper, cobia, and sea trout with or without a professional guide. Kayak and paddleboard rentals are available by the half-day, full-day, or week.

Estero River Outfitters's tackle-and-bait shop equips amateur and experienced fishermen alike with a plethora of gear for adventurous outings along the nearby river. A varied selection of bait helps fishermen angle big catches with saltwater shrimp ($3.79/dozen), freshwater shiner minnows ($7.99/dozen), and night crawlers ($3.75). High-pitched Scotty crank whistles ($5.09) can be used to signal distress or to call unsportsmanlike conduct on an encroaching alligator and fillet/bait kits arm fish-preparers with two stainless-steel knives, a sharpening stone, and handled cutting board ($9.95). The Otterbox 3500 ($27.95), which can withstand up to 100 feet of water pressure, provides an airtight enclosure to keep cell phones, wallets, and other personal items dry.

Jeremy Howard puts his knowledge as a master naturalist to use as a tour guide for Nature Tours and More. To him and his fellow guides, the rivers, lakes, wetlands, and seas of Southwest Florida tell a story about the creatures that live there, and where to find them. The guides lead groups of visitors on kayak-bound tours of local habitats, spotting everything from manatees and dolphins to gators and bats. They visit locations such as splendid mangrove tunnels and lagoons, as well as barrier islands against which the Gulf water splashes.

Because they lead such a varied array of tours, they often launch from different locations, but they accommodate guests by providing shuttle service to and from remote launching points. They also make sure to train guests in how to guide the kayak and outfit them with important safety equipment such as life vests and mosquito forcefields, once they're done being invented.

Gulf Coast Kayak sits on the edge of Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve, a scenic sprawl of estuaries, back bays, and mangrove tunnels roofed by the interlaced branches of waterside trees. Their single and tandem kayaks give paddlers a way to drink up this scenery, instead of waiting on the shore, thumbs-outstretched, hoping to catch a ride from a passing mermaid. Alternatively, paddlers can opt for a guided tour, such as the Sunset Birding Tour, which can afford birdwatchers glimpses of osprey, herons, and spoonbills. For those who cannot make it to their storefront, Gulf Coast Kayak is able to deliver kayaks anywhere in Matlacha or Pine Island for a fee.
