Bat Tour

North Fort Myers, close to all of Fort Myers

Quick Details

Duration: We are together 3 hours, 2 hours are on the water

Meeting Point: North Fort Myers

See Thousands of Bats as They Fly Off to Feed at Dusk

Come to visit a lovely creek in the wilderness of North Fort Myers. This creek is part of our estuary system, with many plants and animals. You will visit a bird rookery, with many birds coming in to roost for the night and then at dusk, you will see the bats come out of their hiding places. Learn about these very interesting, ancient and important creatures from your Certified Florida Master Naturalist 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.
