Rookery Bay 2.5 Hour Tour

Length: 2.5 Hours
Location: 10 Shell Island Rd., Naples, FL 34113
Cost: $65

Adventure Paddle Tours’ original Naples excursion unveils an amazing world of aquatic wildlife. This 2.5-hour tour departs from a small watercraft boat launch located at the end of the “Road to Nowhere” within the Rookery Bay Research reserve.

After finding your paddling groove, we’ll venture out into the larger bay heading towards one of the most spectacular bald eagle nests we’ve ever seen (and we have seen a ton). During our open-water kayaking session, guests are encouraged to keep their eyes peeled for that somewhat elusive manatee.

Following a stunning and scenic paddle through Rookery Bay’s open waters, this tour takes a turn into the popular Shell Island Canoe Trail where your guides can grab horseshoe crabs and fighting conchs and spot schooling mullet. Depending on the group speed, this classic Naples tour can paddle up to seven miles or as little as three.
