Kayak down the Caloosahatchee River into the Florida Sunset

Join us for a sunset kayak tour. The sight of thousands of birds including herons, pelicans, egrets and many more will leave you in complete awe! At the rookery, you will gain valuable insight into this fascinating area. Guided by a Florida Master Naturalist, you will learn a lot about the area as well as the creatures that inhabit this distinct region.
On the kayak tour, you will paddle on the river and some wild creeks.  You will see thousands of birds coming into roost for the night, learn a bunch of cool facts from an expert guide and of course have a spectacular view of the famous Florida sunset!

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.
