Adventure Paddle Tours owner and operator Kyle Mckenzie is now offering specialty boat assisted tours in collaboration with Captain Jim Stiber on his custom 22 foot Summer Breeze tritoon boat. Combining Capt. Jim’s 15 years of Everglades boating experience and Kyle McKenzie’s 15 years of certified sea kayak guide instruction you will be hard pressed to find a company better equipped or more experienced to guide you through the never-ending Everglades National Park. All of our boat assisted tours launch from the Port of the Islands Marina, just 15 minutes South East of Naples, FL, providing our guests with direct access to the Everglades National Park and 10,000 Islands Wildlife Refuge. From the Port of the Islands Marina guests will boat through a 3 mile, no wake, manatee protection zone before hitting the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Our shorter kayak tours alone typically spot manatees within the manatee protection zone, combine an extended, narrated boat ride to your day and you’ve just elevated your everglades experience to the next level!
Due to coast guard regulations all boat supported tours are maxed out at 5 guests offering a more intimate and personal experience.
