Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Tour
Even if you’ve never kayaked before, you can still see manatees, dolphins, seabirds, and more in the wild on this Naples kayaking tour. Follow a guide through the protected estuary and mangrove tunnels at Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park and Barefoot Beach Preserve, learning about plant and animal wildlife from your guide and spotting animals you might miss on your own.
What to Expect
Guests meet their guide 15 minutes before the scheduled 9 or 10am departure time. The exact launch time will be emailed once your reservation is confirmed.  We will meet at the launch ramp at the Cocohatchee River Marina at 13535 Vanderbilt Dr, Naples, FL 34110. To ensure we leave on schedule, guests are asked to use the restrooms and do any other preparation prior to the departure. Changing rooms are located at the marina and a dry set of clothes is recommended to change into after the trip as you get wet in the kayaks. Water shoes/flip flops are also recommended as your feet get wet.  Each kayak is equipped with a dry box for smaller items such as keys and cell phone. Life jackets are also given out prior to departure. A brief instruction on paddling technique and safety will be given before the tour. Your adventure will start paddling through the protected mangrove estuaries, back bays and sea shell filled beaches of the surrounding Delnor Wiggins State Park and Barefoot Beach Preserve where various types of shorebirds, manatees and dolphins may be spotted. We then enter the majestic and mysterious mangrove tunnels where tour goers learn about the various types of mangroves that are found in Southwest Florida. The tour ends 2 hours later back at the Cocohatchee River Marina launch ramp.
