Kayak and Canoe Rentals in Naples

Kayak and canoe rentals are available throughout the area in Naples. Whether you want to paddle around the gulf while your family relaxes at the beach, or if your entire family is ready for a group kayak tour through our Naples Florida mangroves.

There are services that will bring a kayak to you, but you can also pick up your own, or go where they are available on site. We'll get to all that later...

Kayaking in the Florida mangroves


Kayaking is not difficult unless you are going against the current. In that case you'll be fine, it'll just be an extra workout.

Throughout the winter it's fun to go at any time because it's not too hot. Just be sure you have enough day light left to get back. During the summers you should try to get out there early morning to avoid the heat.

Kayaking in Naples Florida

In southwest Florida there is so much to see while kayaking or canoeing our waters. You will run into several species of birds, fish, crabs, and other wildlife. On top of that you'll experience beautiful scenery that you can only enjoy in the mangroves and backwaters.

If you're just on the gulf by the beach you'll still have incredible views and a chance to see dolphins, manatees, pelicans, and fish.

What to bring

You'll want to have sunscreen, a hat that creates enough shade for you, sunglasses, water, and snacks. Wear water friendly shoes or sandles.
