Here at Ibis Bay we provide clear bottom kayak and SUP paddle board rentals on calm protected waters without any boat traffic. When you rent a kayak or paddleboard you will glide over diverse areas of interest - sandbars, mangroves and deep water channels. It makes a unique paddling adventure for anyone regardless of your skill or fitness condition. During your kayak trip you will see many of underwater spices. Stingrays, anemones, sea cucumbers, crabs and many more made their home here and will let you observe their daily life from your SUP or through the clear bottom of your kayak. We also provide top of the line guided kayaking and paddle boarding tours. For our day tour we will shuttle you to one of the most beautiful paddling trails in the Keys. You will spend around 3 hours on the water kayaking or stand up paddleboarding on the open ocean and through mangrove forests. All instructions are provided by our experienced guides so you can be confident in your kayak or on the paddle board. The fun doesn't stop at Ibis Bay. When the Sun goes down we are getting ready for night kayaking and SUP paddleboarding adventures. We attach 2000 lumens Nocaqua LED lights to the bottoms of our paddle boards and clear kayaks so you can experience night paddling like never before. Fish and crabs, octopus and stingrays follow our paddling illuminated tour to give you exclusive look at their nightly activities. We are the only company in Key West doing the night kayak and SUP tours the way they should be done. Forget the tiny lights on your head, forget the darkness around, don't worry about the heat, you're not gonna need the sunscreen for that one too. Call us before 5pm and book your night paddling adventure with Ibis Bay Paddle Sports. Night paddle tours in Key West is a must!

We were booked to do nightboarding (paddle boarding) but the water was a little too rough for that, so we were equipped with LED lights in glass bottom kagyaks and sent out after our guide to do some night kayaking. It was a little scary to be out in the pitch black, but also very fun. A couple of the... More

This was probably my favorite activity that we did while we were in Key West. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful with letting us know where to look to see the most in the night waters. The clear bottom kayaks were well lit on the bottom so you could see so much. Highly recommend it!

Our experience with night paddle sport was absolutely breathtaking, not only that u go out at sunset beautiful views also because of the glass and light bottom you are able to see things most of us get to see only on tv. The owners with the entire crew will make you feel very save and guarantee a great time providing... More

I would have given it zero stars if that was possible. The kayaks with see through bottom and lights seems like a good idea, but didn't really work very well. We never saw anything under the boat because the clear bottom was so scratched up that you couldn't see through it. The tour seemed bad from the beginning. Ryan and... More

Just went on the 90 minute jet ski tour and it was awesome!! I had never been on a jet ski before, and was a little apprehensive about it, but they gave excellent instructions before the tour and once you were in open water, they let you play around for awhile just to get familiar. And during the tour, you... More
