This mom and Pop style paddle board/Kayak business, has one of the best locations to offer for this activity. You set off up a long channel of calm water ways, protected by mangrove trees, practically secluded from power boats, (no wake) and the noise from cars. A total back to nature experience giving you a safe and fun experience. While... More

My fiancé and I had a once in a lifetime fun, thrilling, and unique experience with Chris and Eldon's awesome night tour. They have lights on the bottom of the kayak that illuminate the water below. You can see the plants, fish, jellyfish, and other ocean life. FYI- The fish are excited by the lights and may jump at or... More

As property owners right down the street from Chris and Eldon, we are somewhat jaded in our opinion. Good people with class and integrity. They are willing to do just about anything to help you out. The scenario on the canals is wonderful. I am just glad that Pine Island is still a "secret."

Chris and Eldon are the best. They made us feel at home and our group returned several times during our stay in Cape Coral. If you are looking a kayaking or paddle board experience look no further. Chris and Eldon will make sure your experience is the best.

We contacted Chris the same day we wanted to go out and her and her husband, Eldon, were very accommodating to all our requests and needs. We went on a guided-tour for 2 hours with Chris. They let us choose what kayak we wanted (single vs double) and supplied water and fresh fruit as a snack. Once we returned to... More

Wonderful people!! Made you feel like family. Offered water and hot coco afterwards. First time ever kayaking for myself, mom and dad. We had the best time ever and the dolphins were lovely to watch and be so up close and personal with them in their environment. So coming back with my family!! Truly recommend them for those who enjoy... More

Elden and Chris are a great team - down to earth, yet professional. They provided me with a map, bottle of water, and Chris even offered me a hot cuppa while I waited under the port for the rain to blow over. I had an amazing time - following dolphins up close, navigating the mangroves, paddling through serene lakes of... More
