Escape the ordinary - only 15 minutes from busy downtown Key West, Geiger Key is a pristine paradise. For easy paddling, we select the best route depending on weather, wind and tide conditions. Your expert nature guide takes you through sheltered winding mangrove trails, pointing out native marine life, plants and birds of the Florida Keys. Each tour is different as you explore nature’s touch tank and your guide looks for unusual sea creatures to pass around and touch. Learn about this tropical ecosystem and how the mangrove islands and sea grass beds serve as a marine nursery for Key West’s fish, animals and birds. See dolphins, turtles, rays and bright fish in the water, iguanas sunning in the trees and birds soaring overhead. Feel the tropical air kiss your skin, hear tropical bird calls around you.
No experience is necessary. Our expert guide provides you with paddling tips for both kayaks and paddle boards. We use high quality sea kayaks with comfortable back rests. Both single and tandem kayaks are available. On our 11AM and 3PM tours you may choose a paddle board instead of a kayak. We provide stable, easy-to-paddle, high tech touring boards. These boards are designed for riders up to 250 pounds with a contoured nose section to cut through chop with more forward speed and a comfortable paddling position. Children are welcome on kayaks. Guests must be 13 years of age or older for paddle boards.
Each tour is limited to a small group, making it easy to follow your guide as they point out the various marine life, plants and birds during the tour. We pride ourselves on having the most knowledgeable and friendly guides in Key West so you can ask lots of questions along the way. Or if you prefer, just glide along, enjoy the sounds of nature, and soak in the natural beauty surrounding you.
A photographer’s dream, opportunities abound for nature photos throughout this Key West backcountry tour. Whether you prefer pictures of birds, animals, tropical fauna or unusual sea life this is the top Key West attraction for you. We provide dry bags for cameras.
Tour guests enjoy complimentary door-to-door shuttle service from your Key West hotel to our Geiger Key Paddle Hut.
