Located on the water at Cape Haze Marina we offer beautiful and calm paddling water right from our launch! Lots of manatees, dolphin, sea stars, and much more wildlife are often found right here in our marina basin so no need to paddle far for some excitement! We will give you a laminated map of the area with suggested routes clearly marked out and all rentals come with a land based lesson at the dock before you go and all safety equipment needed is included.

Have gone on this trip for the 4th time. So much information, We saw birds, crabs, starfish,... manatees came right up to the boat, going under the mangroves was unbelievable, Rachel shared information that we will enjoy for a life time. Beautiful, I'm looking forward to many more trips on the future. Paradise.

We made a reservation for a guided tour - a 3 hour trip which they had to cancel. I was called and emailed updates. Honestly, I was impressed by their consideration of my time and money. Plenty of time for me to make other arrangements and a quick refund offered. We chose to take kayaks out on our own. The... More

My family and I had a fabulous time today paddleboarding with Dawn on the Don Pedro paddleboarding excursion. We paddled across the intercoastal and entered a private lagoon (estuary) via paddling through a mangrove maze. I was thrilled we encountered no spiders in the mangroves. We did, however, see spider crabs in the trees which are similar to fiddler crabs.... More
