Escape the Insanity & over crowded beaches with Coconut Kayak Tours. I will take you to places you never knew existed. Secret Beaches, Secret Springs, Off the beaten path - and NO ! I am not publishing all my spots here. Others start showing up and I like places we can have all to ourselves, or few others.
There are not less then 100 places to kayak within a few hours drive of the Pinellas beaches. It would be near impossible to list them all. I have been exploring the creeks, rivers, springs, coastal marine estuaries around here for decades, so put a bit of faith in my knowledge of the area and that I am always staying up on current conditions.
Sometimes we do more then kayaking - like stopping along our adventure to show the kids how to catch Blue Crabs. Other places we look for sharks teeth, or spend time collecting shells and other beach treasures. Then there is also the Gator Frog hunt. Some senior guests enjoy bringing their camera to photograph the many beautiful Florida birds. Stopping often to get a shot, our total distance kayaking may be shorter. We just adjust things as we go. It is never a race, but always a fun family activity for all ages.
Most of my routes were planned for 3 to 4 hours kayaking time. Local trips are typically 1/2 day - $425. Full day is $575 Typically further outside densely populated Pinellas County. The additional $150 difference. covers fuel and drive time. Snook Haven for example is an hour 15 minutes from Clearwater Beach. Round trip drive time 2.5 hours, kayaking the Myakka River 3.5 - 4 hours add 1 hour to enjoy some BBQ and a cold beer 1 hour. It adds up to a full day.
If you just want to go to Caladesi island - drive time is about 5 minutes to the launch on Clearwater Beach -from Clearwater beach. About 1.5 hours kayaking up, an hour for some beach time, picnic lunch and 1.5 hours back 4 hours = a 1/2 day.
Sometimes I get a call from a senior couple that just want a few hours, and only 2 people, I can sharpen my pencil for a "Seniors Sunset Special" $________ and will work with you, especially if it is slow season. I am the company, so I can do whatever I want.
* Effective September 1, 2023 I am doing my best to keep my price a good value for your hard earned Florida Family Vacation Dollar. However, these prices have not changed in about 5 years. Going forward with Florida gas price doubling on full day trips outside Pinellas County. I must add a $50. " Joe Biden Fuel Surcharge " Therefore $575.00 is the new full day rate. If & when gas prices return to Trump $2.19 a gallon this Surcharge will evaporate. ( Drill Baby Drill) If you are only seeking more beach time and we are not traveling far then I will deduct $50.00 or $525.00 full day rate.

Photo Note & Policy
Some competitors and other attractions charge an extra fee, or want to sell you a souvenir photo for $25.00 - $50.00. Not here. Photos are always "free" . You are welcome to bring your own camera gear or use your modern communication device to take pictures. Yes, I am always happy to stop for a "Kodak Moment" and take your photo as a memento of your kayaking adventure. I respect every ones right to privacy and I never post your photos online on any social media websites, but YOU can. I personally do not like my mug on the Internet and this will explain why I am always the chimp. I am Space X Chimp on Twitter - X - for example. I like my privacy, perhaps you do as well. This being said I enjoy photographing and videoing nature. Yes, I have a Mac running Final Cut Pro video editing - Adobe Photoshop and other programs. Yes, I built, and maintain this web site myself even though I have no formal training or schooling for it.
When I was little I bought a Kodak Brownie camera for .88 cents from the neighbors garage sale. Mrs. Cherry wanted $1.00 but .88 cents is all I had. Everything was manual. A roll of film with 12 photos and getting them developed at Foto Mat would cost me an entire weeks allowance from my chores. This is how I learned to take great pictures. Making sure my frame would capture the image I wanted, my horizon was level , I had good light etc... before I clicked that shutter. Today with digital photos, computer editing I am still just having fun.
In closing, I have toasted $1000's of dollars of Pro Digital SLRs, 3 Chip Video cameras, cell phones and gear in my lifetime. The cost for an expensive hobby. Sand, Salt air, humidity, water all will destroy sensitive electronic components. It is what it is. Please understand your camera, cell phone are used at your risk and responsibility. I will never be held responsible for your devices. If you choose to bring your $1000 iphone kayaking and you tip in and soak your cell phone. Sucks. But don't blame me. I am not paying for the cost to replace it. Thank you for your understanding.
