Kayak Around Rookery Island

900 Tarpon Bay Road, Sanibel Island, 33957, FL

If you’ve ever wanted to try the sport of sea kayaking, the protected cove of Tarpon Bay is a great place to start. Tarpon Bay Explorers offers a 90-minute guided kayak tour with a naturalist through the red mangrove swamps of the Commodore Creek Water Trail. However, our family of four enjoyed the two-hour Rookery Island tour even more. As the sun sets, hundreds of herons, egrets, ibis, cormorants and pelicans make their way home for the night to sleep. It’s a paddle your kids won’t forget.
