What is there to see on the Anna Maria Island Tour?
That depends on which customized tour you select. On the Gulf of Mexico, the tour travels along the calm, Gulf waters while viewing the sandy white beaches of Anna Maria Island. During the bayside tour, we travel by the two bayside piers, Rod-n-Reel and Anna Maria Island City Pier, with the back drop of the Skyway Bridge and Egmont Key off to the north. During the bayside tour, we travel into and around beautiful mangrove islands which are the home for florida's beautiful wildlife.
Do you have to be an experienced kayaker?
No, but due to the possibility of currents we recommend this tour for paddlers with some kayaking experience.
Where do we meet?
The Anna Maria Island Tour meeting point is determined by your customized tour. At the time of your reservation, we will establish a launch point from Anna Maria Island.
What should I bring?
We highly recommend bringing a bottle of water and items that you would normally have while you are in the sun (sunscreen, hat, sunglasses). Cameras are okay, but we suggest putting them in a zipped plastic bag if they are not waterproof.
What should I wear?
Most people wear t-shirts, shorts and/or bathing suits. During the winter months we suggest a light wind breaker or a sweat shirt depending on the temperature and the wind conditions. The most important thing is to be comfortable. As for shoes, wear something that you don’t mind getting wet - flip flops, water shoes, or old sneakers are ideal.
