Au programme

We offer coastal kayak ecotours led by a Florida Master Naturalist certified by the university of Florida. We specialize in small intimate tours to lower our impact on the waters we tour and to ensure a personal experience with our guides and habitats.
Meet us at one of several launches we tour from for introductions and a safety / instructional demonstration (beginners welcome). From there we kayak for 2.5 hours hours through mangrove lined shorelines and islands searching for wildlife to observe and learn about first hand. We encounter hundreds of different species of wildlife on our tour. Sharing these adventures with a master naturalist will provide unique insight into the lives of these amazing animals and their habitats. When we get back to land we take care of all break down down and clean up. We invite guests to follow us on social media where we will post updates on our daily tours and any resident wildlife news that we discover. Comment on our Facebook posts and become a regular part of our community no matter where you live. Total tour time is 3 hours.
We have dedicated our time to share how truly special these coastal communities are, and why it is so important to protect them. Our mission is to Engage, Entertain, and Educate our guests while providing a coastal adventure to be remembered for years to come.

I grew up exploring the Shallow water flats and mangrove habitats of south Florida . I learned independence and became obsessed with coastal exploration. Now a few decades later I've converted that passion into a personal need to help others connect with nature. As a certified Florida Master Naturalist I've dedicated my professional life to helping to educate people on the importance of our natural spaces, how to protect them, and to guide people to their their own connection with nature. I bring over 30 years of experience, and love to share the knowledge I've collected throughout those years. I've worked in tourism based hospitality for many years and have a very high expectation of the guest experience. My goal is to provide a great day on the water, observing wildlife and hopefully my guests learn something new along the way!!

Destinations

Estero Bay Aquatic preserve is a magical place.
This estuary is home to hundreds of species of wildlife, many imperiled. The bay is protected by a chain of barrier islands to separate it from the gulf of Mexico on the west side. Rivers and freshwater creeks flow into the bay bringing the nutrients that are the building blocks of life to the bay. This creates the oceans nursery. This is an amazing place to observe wildlife in it's natural habitat

We came to Ft Meyers area to enjoy and explore the west cost of Florida (Tampa to Naples) and we wanted to have different experiences off the beaten path. We booked Shane’s Eco Kayak Tour and I cannot say enough good things about this experience. If you’ve kayaked and enjoyed it, you’ll love this. The places Shane took us to explore were amazingly beautiful, protected, and hardly seen areas. We saw abundant wildlife and Shane’s expertise is incredible. He shares so much knowledge about the area and the wildlife you encounter (aquatic and land). We saw dolphins, two swam within a few feet of our Kayak, multiple birds, fish, crab, and we hear sometimes manatees make their presence - they did not show up for us. The waters were beautiful, Shane was an incredible guide, very friendly and eagerly answered all of our questions. My wife and I (72 & 75 years old) our granddaughters (6 & 8 years old) and their parents (39 & 46) had a great time and were able to handle the 3 hour tour, frankly we wanted more it was so engaging. If your considering doing this - book it, you won’t have any regrets and it’s likely you’ll have a friend in Florida after spending time with Shane.

Shane was an absolute delight. He provided a safe and exciting experience - he also accommodated the tour based on the group background knowledge and experience. My son loved it so much that he went back for another tour the next day! Highly recommend!

Incredible experience! The location was beautiful and seeing the mangrove from the water gives you and added appreciation for the beauty of the estuary. Shane is very knowledgable about the ecosystem and passionate about conservation. He took the time to explain to my girls the different species we were seeing and wanted to make sure we took it all in. This was definitely a highlight of our vacation.

Shane was amazing. His passion for what he does shines thru. His in depth knowledge and care for the eco system we explored was exemplary. We spent a beautiful morning in nature saw amazing wildlife in a sanctuary people drive by and don’t even know it’s there. A true treasure of an experience. Thanks.
