Crystalline waters lap at the powdery white sands of Tigertail Beach as guests lounge away, propped up on wooden foldout chairs acquired from Tigertail Beach Rentals. The business makes summertime fun its sole focus, renting watercraft as well as cabanas and other beach accessories. Aquatic explorers can jump into sea squirts and traipse through the gentle waves, spritzing family members or easily deterred merfolk with water cannons. Single or tandem kayaks leisurely glide through the lagoon, with riders enjoying close-up views of residents of the nearby wildlife habitat while maintaining a quiet atmosphere for those on the beach. Guests can recharge with breakfast or lunch offerings from the outdoor café, noshing on Angus burgers, grouper fingers, and kids' meals served in beach pails.

Quinn Boards’ founders, Scott Quinn and Doug Kelly, and their staff of enthusiastic standup paddlers equip riders with a Quinn Board water skimmer perfect for their size before giving them a brief lesson on how to properly glide over sparkling azure fields. After learning proper wave-wrangling techniques, boarders propel themselves through open salt waters in search of traveling schools of fish, dolphins at play, and octopi studying World Cup teams. Standup-paddleboard sessions can also tighten cores, strengthen arms, and tone legs, all while granting surfers lofty views of Naples's pristine white sands.

The guides say one of the best views the island has to offer, though, can only be seen on warm summer nights beneath a new moon. As the waters grow warmer, they provide a home for single-celled organisms called dinoflagellates, and larger comb jellyfish. Both creatures naturally emit light, a phenomenon known as bioluminescence. When ambient light is low enough and the water warm enough, the combined presence of the two glowing critters becomes so bright, it can even cast shadows. Guides only offer these tours during the appropriate months and lunar phases, but they conduct plenty of other excursions during daylight hours. They take groups by kayak to the Barrier Islands for a picnic, show off sunsets from watery perches, and even provide the opportunity to paddle alongside manatees?sometimes called sea cows because, like land cows, they often say, "Cowabunga!"
