Guided Tours with Paddles By The Sea
Guided Tours on Kayaks or Paddle Boards
Explore the Indian River Lagoon with an experienced local guide. You have the choice to Paddle Board, Single Kayak, or Double Kayak on our guided tours. These tours meet at Vero Tackle in front of Riverside Cafe and launch from the marina that’s on-site. From there we’ll set out on the Indian River and learn about the local history of the river while looking for the ever-present dolphin and manatee, maybe even some river otters.
WHAT TO EXPECT
All tours start at the Vero Tackle shop, where you’ll check in with your guide. From there, you’ll head out to the docks for a kayak or SUP lesson if you need one, and then you’ll set out on your adventure from our easy launch station. Your guide will continue to teach you and suggest helpful tips and tricks throughout the tour to make your kayaking or SUP experience easy and fun.
Wildlife can be found all over the lagoon, making it easy for your tour guide to tailor the rest of the experience for you. Many paddlers enjoy checking out the sailboats moored in the lagoon, while others prefer to investigate the spoil islands. Let your guide know if you have any ideas in mind.
On the water, you’ll have the opportunity to see amazing Florida wildlife like dolphins, manatees, river otters, sea turtles, and a variety of fish and wading birds. You’ll also learn about the history of the Indian River Lagoon as you paddle through its calm waters.
This two hour tour is a great way to see the Indian River Lagoon. Our launch site in the marina at the Riverside Cafe is known for its dolphin and manatee sighting, which really makes the tour guide’s job easy. That way they can focus on teaching paddle boarding and kayaking, and being your photographer. Your tour includes a lesson, photos, a bottle of water, sunscreen, and a lasting memory.
