Paddling: Kayak, Canoe & SUP
If you want to explore our enchanting waterways on your own but didn’t bring your equipment, you can find rentals throughout the area that offer kayaks, standup paddleboards, and everything else you need to launch. And, Charlotte County publishes a comprehensive Blueway Trails Guide that will help you plan your route/s, available to view online and download.
When you take a guided tour, you have your choice of kayak, canoe, or standup paddleboard, in a variety of environmental areas. Most outfits also offer beginning standup paddleboard lessons, so no worries if you don’t know how (yet).
All tours are led by certified guides, and most of them are Florida Master Naturalists. This means that not only will you be safe on your tour, your guide can tell you what you're seeing and what you should look for, and help you more fully enjoy your adventure and the amazing nature and wildlife in the area.
