This is a once in a lifetime experience and a memory you will treasure forever.

This amazing tunnel leads to a hidden lagoon where the only sound you will hear is the gulf breeze blowing through the mangroves. Then we will continue on to Don Pedro Island State Park Beach which is only accessible by boat, kayak, or paddle board so it is one of the most unspoiled and private islands in Florida. Here you will have a chance to rest and explore the beautiful beach and swim in the warm clear water. We will provide a light snack lunch of a small sandwich, chips, and water. This is also a great beach for shelling so remember to bring a bag for your treasures! On our paddle back you should keep your eyes peeled for the West Indian Manatee and dolphin pods that frequent these waters. One of the things often exclaimed by our paddlers is “This is way better than Sea World!”

Light Up the Night Paddle Tours

(Not available June-mid September)
$65/ Person

Light Up the Night Paddle Tour

Light up and paddle out and see what’s under the water in a whole new light! Have you ever been to an aquarium and stood in awe at all the creatures great and small and thought to yourself how much you wish you could be inside that aquarium? Well this tour will take you there… It’s like floating across the top of a huge saltwater aquarium and you will see magical things that are just impossible to see during the day! Your paddle board or kayak will be lighted from underneath while you float above in the dark, giving you a whole new perspective and ability to see sea creatures in a way you’ve never seen them before. We will float in shallow water and across grass flats and sandbars revealing starfish, live shells, sponges, and tons of fish species. This is an unequaled experience on the water and seats are limited and fill up quickly each week.

Important Information About This Tour

  • This is a 1.5 hour guided tour.
  • This tour is best done on a paddleboard but don’t worry about learning to stand… you will be sitting the entire trip anyway. Visibility is best in very shallow water and the closer you are to the water the more you can see. So you want to be sitting down, close to the water. Boards work better than kayaks because with kayaks you have to lean over the edge of the boat to see the lighted area, causing it to be unstable. So unless you have a health concern or back problem and need the support of a full seat, you will be using a paddleboard and will be sitting on top paddling it like a kayak.
  • Please bring your own bug spray…you will need it in the warmer months!
  • This tour has a minimum participant number of 4 people. If you are not booking for 4 or more people and additional people do not book for this tour you may need to be rescheduled. You will be contacted by phone and email if there is a scheduling problem.

(1st Saturday monthly)

Ocean Clean Up

The world’s first international weekly cleanup, Ocean Hour leverages social media and technology to crowdsource cleanups around the globe on a weekly basis.  The first Saturday, each month, from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., no matter where you are on this planet, the Ocean Hour community will head to local beaches, rivers, lakes, and waterways around the globe to clean up trash and marine debris. We realize you can’t make it to every cleanup, but with social media and our ability to mobilize the masses, our impact is powerful even if only 10% of our community shows up on any given month. As our network continues to grow, our influence will thrive exponentially with larger turnouts each month.  Whether you can make it once a month, or once a year, we invite you to join us in this movement.
