- $99 for a four-hour guided fishing trip ($250 value)
When the weather’s optimal, guides take guests out on 14-foot kayaks. Each trip also includes a life vest, a rod and reel, tackle, fishing supplies, and a cooler with bottled water.
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.
