Boca Chica Kayaking
The Boca Chica kayak tour offers a great diversity of marine life and habitats in a small area, highlighted by fantastic tidal creeks. On emerald water, we meander through islands of exotic red mangroves or “walking trees.” You will want to bring your camera for this! Then paddle over sandy shallows brimming with:
- Unique coral
- Colorful sponges
- Queen conch
- Tropical fish
Your guide will catch some of these critters, so you can get to know them personally! As we drift near a tropical island, look for osprey nesting and wading birds feeding. Queen conch, small sharks, tarpon and stingrays are common, as is the spectacular spotted eagle ray. Because our tours are sheltered from the wind, we encounter no large waves which makes for the perfect marine-life experience!
Meeting Place and Check-In Time
- If you have chosen hotel pickup, we will contact you before the tour to make arrangements. Otherwise, please meet your guide at the picnic area outside East Martello Museum, 3501 S. Roosevelt Blvd., Key West, FL 33040, located near the Key West International Airport. Once you arrive, briefly park your car (no bikes/walk-ups/taxis allowed) while you check in with your guide. Wait in the lot and then follow your guide in your vehicle about 2.5 miles to the dock where the kayaks will be waiting! Lost? Please call 305-394-0280.
- Please arrive 35 minutes before your tour is scheduled to depart. We will leave right on time!
- Dress appropriately for the day’s weather. If light rain is predicted, bring a rain jacket!
- Wear a bathing suit and light clothing that you won’t mind getting wet. You may get splashed from time to time by paddle drip!
- In the winter, consider bringing a sweater or a windbreaker, as it can get chilly out on the water
