Overview

- Easy rentals at multiple locations- just show up and go! - Pick up or delivery to your home or condo - Fun affordable tours - easy online tour booking -Over 12 years in business! - Retail store where you can come in and ask questions about rentals or tours 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.

Ashley was our guide on the morning paddleboarding tour around Rookery Bay. She was super friendly, skilled in paddleboarding, and very helpful. We had an excellent time and would definitely recommend doing the paddleboarding tour with Naples Kayak Company to anyone.

The Capri tour has a little beach on an island where we usually stretch legs and on both Capri and Rook we can always stop on a sandbar to get out if someone needs to stretch.
