Here are some commonly asked questions about our Guided Kayak Nature Tours and Guided Paddle Board Tours

-What is the process for booking my Guided Kayak Nature Tour? Simply decide which tour you would like to participate in and then click the calender on the day and time that you wish to participate. You will get a confirmation email after you book and a reciept of paynment for your tour.Your tour guide will contact you the evening prior to your tour and provide his/her cell # and make sure that you know everything that you need to know.

-Is it common to give a gratuity to my guide? It is certainly customary in the United States to give a gratuity to service personel who have done a good job, just as you would at any other venue. Remember that your tour guide is checking the weather and tide, loading and unloading the kayaks and working hard to find wildlife on your kayak tour or paddle board tour. All of this is in addition to the significant investment in training and equipment that our professional guides have put forth.

-Are there alligators? There are alligators in Florida. We don't really provide tours in areas that would have any real population of gators. Remember also that gators really just want to eat, sleep and make more gators. They usually eat things like fish and turtles.

-What should I wear? Ideally you should protect your skin from the sun, either with Sun block or sun protective clothing. Sun protective hats and clothing are available in our retail store, Naples Outfitters at 2360 Shadowlawn Drive in Naples.

-Do you have single and double kayaks? We have both. When you book your tour the booking software will ask you if you would like singles or doubles.

-Are life jackets provided? Always. In fact, on nature tours our guide will require you to wear one.

-What if we have never paddled before? Our guides are also instructors. Your tour will be a beginner lesson and a tour!

-What if it rains? There are quite a few months in SW Florida that getting rained on can be just wonderful. However, you guide has been checking the weather carefully in an attempt to avoid lightning. If we can't go for safety reasons, or if it will be just too wet then we will gladly refund your money.

Please note that our hours of operation are the retail store hours. Complete tour times are listed on the Naples Kayak Company website.

It never ceases to amaze me how much I have learned from Tom. As beginning kayakers with our first kayaks my wife and I have taken lessons from Tom and also taken tours with him so we can get familiar with the area prior to going out on our own. We have taken the Rookery Bay Tour, Birds, Birds, and... More

We rented two Hobies (pedal rather paddle) on January 19. Kayaks were delivered to us at New Pass where we put in. Equipment was in good shape and delivery person offered some suggestions on where and how to fish. Rental rates are for all day. $65 per kayak and $55 delivery charge. Rates are probably competitive. We wanted Hobies and... More

My husband and I come to Florida during the cold months and spend as much time as we can kayaking. Whenever we come we take a tour or a lesson with Tom who is just fantastic. This is my second review of him because he just gets better every year! We just took his Wiggins Park tour and we learned... More

We had 12 members of our extended family take the guided tour in Rookery Bay with Naples Kayak Company. Tom was our main tour guide along with Bob. They were both so knowledgeable about the area. They took their time showing us animals and nature. We never felt rushed. Tom was great teaching us the proper techniques of kayaking. We... More

I am a Florida resident, I have been on many tourist nature tours all of them have shown me the beauty of Florida. But on this trip with Tom as our tour guide we really reached beyond the surface beauty. He helped us understand the sensitive interactive underpinnings of the Mangroves around Rookery Bay. Now I finally know the difference... More

This was my first kayak experience, Tom was a great guide, his patience was sorely tested by myself and my Mum we were not good at navigating, but he was constantly reassuring and helped us along and he was so knowledgeable about the ecosystems in the mangroves. Beautiful scenery around Wiggins Pass, we were also lucky enough to see dolphins... More

Tom was a great guide: knowledgeable, pleasant, skilled and patient with inexperienced kayakers like us. We learned a bunch and it was a beautiful area.

We enjoyed the beautiful sunset and scenery while Kayaking with John. John is kind and relaxed and offers a knowledgeable and interesting commentary on the mangroves and birds.

We had a great experience with our guide Bob. He truly enjoyed his job and was very knowledgable about the area. Very easy to talk to and always involved our kids in the conversation. Would use Naples Kayak Company again.

Tom was very informative and I learned a lot about the natural environment in Naples so that was fun. I would have loved to have done a bit more kayaking but that being said it was a wonderful morning. We saw all kinds of birds and a dolphin swam close to our kayaks which was a great treat.
