Kayaking Tour in Key Largo

Key Largo Kayak Tours

Kayaking in the Florida Keys with Sail Fish Scuba
Don’t try to kayak alone! The mangrove mazes take years to master and first timers can easily get turned around. Instead, join one of our guided kayaking tours. Allow a professional local kayak guide to show you the secret tunnels and hidden beaches full of wildlife! Swim with the manatees, search for a lettuce sea slug, watch a stingray eat a snack or even race a dolphin! Just when things are heating up, you will take a refreshing snorkel break in the beautiful Key Largo coral reef nursery. Sign up today!

Tour Description

This is not the land based park you can enter by auto along US#1. There is a massive Mangrove Jungle spanning miles and miles along the coastline of Key Largo, and our Professional kayak guides know all the best kayaking and snorkeling routes.

Depending on the wind speed and direction of the day we will choose one of many kayak launch destinations. From there your guide will lead your group (of no more than 6 guests per each tour) on a journey into the magical dense jungle of the mangroves.

Along the tour we will have a shallow snorkeling spot for you to slip off your kayak and into the water. There, you will get to snorkel for around 20 minutes.

In order to make your experience enjoyable, we do not wear fins on this tour as to not stir up the bottom which would result in limited visibility.

On the behalf of Sail Fish Scuba we love to thank all of our guests for choosing us as your snorkel operator. If you did not have an amazing trip or have any recommendations at all please let one of the owners or staff members know immediately so we can fix this issue and make sure it does not happen in the future. We know no one is perfect, but we cannot fix problems unless they are brought to our attention.

If you have a great time on your tour please give us a great review on Trip Advisor, Yelp, Google Maps, Facebook, or other social media sites. We do not do any advertising and rely solely on our customer service and repeat guests to ensure we will be open for years to come.
