Beautiful mangrove islands--a birders paradise. We will paddle around the mangrove islands on the way to the secret beach.

Turtle Beach

We will pull our kayaks and paddleboards out of the water for a quick walk over the sand dune and to the Gulf of Mexico. From here, we will stretch our legs, maybe take a quick swim and just relax. This is a "secret" beach---only accessible by boat, so we may have the area to ourselves. It is such a beautiful and isolated beach--a local favorite.

Enjoyed the tour -- beautiful area -- missed out by 1 day when they said their were a lot of manatees - really liked the history of the shark tank area, the mangroves - going through the mangrove tunnels and visiting the beautiful private beach that was filled with shells! Then only thing I would suggest is if you have never kayaked, the guide should ask that question and give guidance on how to kayak etc.


Amazing experience. Our tour guide was very nice and knows a lot information about the area, nature and wildlife. Next time we will visit with our family.


Great experience!! Went over spring break with the grandparents & kids (9,13 &16) everyone had a wonderful time. Our guide was knowledgeable & fun. I would definitely recommend this trip!


The private beach was amazing! I We just went without a guide it was great! We didn’t see dolphins or manatee but I think evening or morning might be better


Sawyer was a great tour guide and was very accommodating to our large group. The kids had a great time. We had kids ages 7-16, some tandem and single kayaks. Very nice tour of the mangroves.


Great tour guide, upbeat personality. small group still so fun. Updating the site to say manatees aren’t in the area in early spring would be helpful to other visitors who would like to see them.


Aaron was a great tour guide! Private beach was the best but the whole tour was relaxing and so fun. Def worth the experience

It was wonderful! We kayaked through a channel to a beach and saw a lot of wildlife. Then we kayaked through mangrove trees. Would do it again for sure!


Really fun time seeing the sights and the wildlife. The guide was experienced and entertaining. We would gladly do it again.

We really enjoyed our kayak tour with Tim. He was knowledgeable and engaging…he made the trip fun and interesting. Great trip through the mangrove forests and out to a beautiful swimming beach-so many shells! I was disappointed that we didn’t see any manatees, but that means I’ll just have to return when the water’s warmer! Thanks for a great experience!
