Experience the Top Sanibel Island Kayaking Adventures

Sanibel Island offers plenty of ways for you to get in the water. Of course, you can lay out your towel on the white sand beaches and dive into the water for some casual swimming, but if you’re looking for something a bit more intense, there are tons of options. If you want to experience the water and see the incredible nature of the island at the same time, consider kayaking! Even if you’ve never tried kayaking before, there are several Sanibel Island kayaking companies that will make you feel right at home on the water. Here are a few of our favorite operations near our Sanibel Island rentals.

Tarpon Bay Explorers

Tarpon Bay Explorers plays host to a number of guided nature tours around the Sanibel Island area. One of their most popular selections is the Kayak Trail Tour, which is an incredible introduction to Tarpon Bay and the coastal environment. You will be guided by an experienced naturalist and will be taken through the mangrove forest along the Commodore Creek Trail. You’ll get a unique perspective of the mangrove habitat and will learn about the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge.

Another of their most popular kayak options is the Low Tide Kayak Tour. This is an incredible option for birdwatchers, as the 90-mile trek through the tidal flats will provide feeding opportunities for a variety of bird species. You’re likely to spot species like egrets, osprey, and herons, as well as other Sanibel Island wildlife like dolphins and manatees! No matter which of these options you select, you’re sure to have an incredible time with your faithful guide and your loved ones on the tour with you.
