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.

Tom took us on a fun and educational tour of Rookery Bay. We learned so much, and he even extended the tour by 30 minutes to show us more interesting sights when he didn't have to. Thanks for a great trip Tom!

Went with a group and had a wonderful time. Good instructions, learned some tips to improve my technique and some interesting flora and fauna background. Well worth the afternoon.

Saw a pre-owned kayak for sale at a good price on Craigslist, and lo and behold, it was at Naples Outfitters. I went and looked at the Hobie, and everything was low pressure and easy. I came back after lunch, got rung up and off I went. I love my new little kayak, and I got a great price and... More

Naples kayak Co. did a thoroughly professional job of leading us on a 3-hour plus tour of the of the back waters and mangrove trails and tunnels of the Barefoot Beach Paddling Trail. The guide was knowledgeable and always interesting. The kayaking leans a bit more to the strenuous side because the afternoon tides going out against you and because... More

We did the afternoon tour with Tom as our guide. Great tour and very educational. Tom was great at teaching us first how to kayak and then about the bay, the mangrove trees and how they impact the entire ecology of the area.

This was a 3-4 hour tour of the mangroves that left from the Isle of Capri. We did not book this tour until the day before the tour. The office staff were very helpful in booking our tour and accommodated the time of the day we wanted to go. The tour guide called us later that evening to make sure... More

A great kayaking trip around the Isles of Capri. We saw a lot of birds to include numerous osprey we saw fishing. We saw to live conch shells and loved going through the mangroves. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about life in the estuary. We very much enjoyed our three hour trip. Too bad we missed the dolphins!

Simon is awesome. I did class with him in November as well. Do not be afraid to check this class out. You are not going to fall in and be eaten by gators.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the inland waterway flora and fauna. The equipment was in good shape and the instruction was fine for the paddling we did. Perhaps a bit more on safety in case of capsizing, especially if there had been children, would be my only observation.

Tom was a great guide! Gave good review of kayaking techniques. Went thru beautiful mangrove tunnels! We learned so much from Tom's knowledge of the eco system, mangroves, numerous birds etc. I would highly recommend this tour!
