Explore the winding mangrove tunnels of the Rookery Bay Reserve in search of sea stars, urchins, wading birds, giant snails, tree crabs, dolphin, manatee, and more! These backwaters provide a fun paddle through some of the most beautiful mangrove tunnels in the region. Join us on our award winning Mangrove Tunnels & Mudflats tour with one of our biologist & certified naturalist guides or use our digital map to navigate the tunnels with ease. We recommend at least 2-3 hours in this park to get into all of our favorite tunnels. The Paddlecraft Park is located at the corner of Collier Blvd & Capri Blvd just North of Marco Island.
Paddle into the heart of the Rookery Bay Reserve on a marked canoe trail through calm mangrove creeks and back bays scattered with small mangrove islands. Keep your eyes open for dolphin and manatee as you head to the famous bird rookery island, home to hundreds of birds of all different species. Join us on our Sunset Bird Rookery Kayak Tour to learn about this amazing place or explore on your own by renting a kayak. We recommend about 2 hours at this park to paddle the entire 2-mile canoe trail at a leisurely pace. Shell Island Road Launch is located at the very end of Shell Island Road, South of US-41 off Collier Blvd. Keep your eyes open during your drive to see gophers, tortoise, birds, deer, raccoons, and maybe even a bobcat!
Journey into the 10,000 islands by renting a kayak from this awesome park on the South side of Marco! We will deliver it for free and give you some expert tips on where you can enjoy secluded beaches, wildlife and world-renowned shelling on these natural barrier islands. This area is home to many dolphin, shore birds, sea turtles, and our favorite beachside invertebrates like sand dollars, sea stars, and snails! Low tide is the best time to explore this area due to favorable currents, exposed sand bars, and great shelling conditions. We suggest 2-3 hours to explore this park and really enjoy your time in the 10,000 islands. This park is located at the South end of Marco Island at the end of Collier Blvd.
All rentals and tours are by reservation only. Call or book online.
