ROOKERY BAY RESEARCH RESERVE
Rookery Bay is a smaller, shallow-water bay within the 110,000-acre Rookery Bay Research Reserve—one of the few remaining undisturbed mangrove ecosystems in North America.
This reserve is an integral part of the larger Everglades ecosystem. The unique area was put into protection due to its high biodiversity and high chance of development.
To access Rookery Bay, our kayak tours depart from the 10 Shell Island Road kayak launch situated at the very end of the road. This idyllic launch site is conveniently located between Marco Island and downtown Naples off of Collier Boulevard.
Often used by multiple kayak operators, we are the only company that ventures out towards a little-known, but massive, bald eagles nest. Our expert guides look forward to sharing this special corner of the world and its abundant marine wildlife with our guests.
