Q:

Do the passengers get wet? and if so, what kind of clothing/shoes do you recommend especially since the colder weather is upon us?

Nancy I.  asked on  Nov 3, 2012

A:

I always say that I feel like an announcer for the water rides at disney: " You will get wet on this ride" LOL. We use ocean kayaks so your bum will get wet and most people get wet from water off the paddle as they paddle. With that being said, I reccomend wearing a bathing suit or shorts and light layers. The stay dry athletic clothes work great or a windbreaker. I would not recommend wearing a cotton shirt because they tend to get weighted down. In my opinion, the amount of water you get in the boat etc is not a major concern to comfort, it is the breeze or chill in the air in the mornings. That is why I suggest the light layers: for instance today- our guide went out in a light wet suit, shirt, and swim trunks and had to stop during the tour to strip it off because it got to hot.

Q:

Can I bring my four year old and 9 year old? And how much are they?

Nikki K.  asked on  Nov 2, 2012

A:

Children under the age of 10 are required to ride tandem with an adult so as long as there will be 2 adults this would be fine. We do not set age restrictions but we always pose the question, " Will your child be able to sit for 2.5 hours?" You will be the best person to answer this question as we do not know your children.

Hi - Do we need to make a reservation in advance? We are hoping to get 4-6 of us to kayak w you on sat Nov 10. Can we finalize w you 2 days before? And what happens if its windy - we kayaked once w 20 mph winds - some had a very hard time. How late can we cancel- reschedule to another date? Thanks a bunch!

juls  asked on  Nov 1, 2012

A:

Hi, Juls. A reservation is required. Please call the merchant directly at (941) 932-8987 for availability, as they will have the most updated schedule to reference. They can also answer any additional questions regarding rescheduling. Thanks for writing!

A:

Hi Juls, The easiest way to make a reservation would be to go to our website: www.shantkayaks.com there is a tab that says: book a tour. Fill out the form for the day and time of the tour. Once we receive the online form we will check the calendar, if space is avaible for that day we will add you to the calendar and you will be notified. If we are booked you will be notified and allowed to change dates. As far as weather. Other than guest enjoyment, SAFETY is our #1 concern! With that being said, we will reccomend cancelling a tour due to high winds when a small craft advisory is called for. Depending on the wind speeds there might be times when we "reccomend" cancelling and other times when we are firm on cancelling. The nice thing about the location for this tour is that we can usually run the tour and keep the wind behind us which makes for a very nice kayaking experience because we can travel in 1 direction.

Q:

the 20$ is per person? What if 2 persons want to be on the same boat?

wendy u.  asked on  Nov 1, 2012

A:

Hi Wendy
This Groupon is per person regardless of boat style you wish to use. So, 2 people in a tandem would require 2 Groupons. Thanks!

Kelsey W.  from  Groupon  replied on  Nov 1, 2012

A:

Kelsey, Normally tandems (2-person kayaks) are more expensive. We charge by the person instead of by the boat.

Q:

Good morning, Me and my partner are travelling from England to florida on christmas day for 2 weeks. We plan to do some kayaking while we are out there. Can you tell me if we book the Shan-T Palmetto Tour with Goupon we will be able to do the Kayaking between the 28th & 30th of December. Please can you you let me know whilst the offer is still available. Thank you. Regards Dawn Brunt

Dawn B.  asked on  Nov 1, 2012

A:

Hi Dawn
Please contact the business directly at (941) 932-8987 for the most up to date availability. Thanks!

Kelsey W.  from  Groupon  replied on  Nov 1, 2012

A:

Hi Dawn, Absolutely. I would recommend that you book your trip for one of your first days here because we cannot control the weather. This away if there is inclement weather you have a backup date. I would reccomend that you go ahead and book the date now because the week between Christmas and New Year was jammed packed last year.

Q:

How long or how many miles is the kayak tour?

Larry H.  asked on  Nov 1, 2012

A:

Hi Larry, we have never tracked the mileage of our tours. Tours typically run between 2-3 hours. We always try to customize the tour for each group, so if the group is a group of paddlers...then we paddle. If the group is more sight seeing that is what we do. Please feel free to call us directly if you have any additional questions. ~ Michelle
