Though its calm flow and smaller volume make it an ideal venue for kayaking, it's not unusual for paddlers traversing the Little Piney River to go an entire trip without seeing another human being. Unlike destination rivers choked by tourists carted in by the busload, the Little Piney offers serenity in its seclusion, whether for lazy floats along its banks or fishing. Blue Heron Boatworks caters to all aspects of a successful kayaking trip, from shuttling guests to their starting points to politely encouraging the river to reverse its flow for visitors who drop their paddles on the shore.

As longtime locals, Captain Mike and his team happily dole out thoughtful recommendations regarding area attractions and restaurants to inquisitive guests, pointing out all manner of hidden gems and waterfront restaurants.

Since launching off from the shores of Fort Myers Beach in 1982, Paradise Parasail’s signature smiley-face parachutes have become an iconic image in the sky, now flying high above the waters of both the Gulf of Mexico and the Lake of the Ozarks. USCG-licensed captains navigate each of the company's boats as riders trail behind at heights of up to 500 feet. With feet flopping in the wind, thrill-seekers are free to wave to their friends, family, and nearby migratory birds. Parasailers can also pose for photos and videos captured by the company's onboard photographers.
