Despite its name, there has yet to be a sighting of an actual gator on Alligator Creek, so fear not! However, if you’re looking to paddle down a Florida creek and witness the transition from fresh-water to the salt-water environment then the Alligator Creek Kayak Tour is a can’t-miss opportunity! GAEA Guides-Guided Kayak Nature Tours wants to take you on a kayak adventure down the magnificent Alligator Creek which is part of the Charlotte Harbor Estuary. On this kayak tour, you will learn about the estuary and the mangrove forest. You’ll see a plethora of fish and birds along the creek and hear interesting facts from an expert guide.

GAEA Guides uses tandem kayaks that handle like a single if you are alone in one. We do this to limit the number of kayaks in the environment that may annoy the wildlife. We also do it because there is better communication between the guide and the clients if there are fewer kayaks. We only take a small group on each tour. The kayaks are sit-inside kayaks with comfortable seats and plenty of leg room.

Upon meeting at the appointed time we will sign in, go over some safety information and then get the equipment in the water. This takes approximately ½ hour. At the completion of the tour, we allow another ½ hour to get all the equipment put away. You will receive the directions to the launch site after making your reservations.
