Although this park is primarily a wildlife refuge, it can be a personal refuge - a place to relax and collect shells along secluded, pristine beaches. Accessible only by private boat, Egmont Key has a unique natural and cultural history, including a lighthouse that has stood since 1858. During the 19th century, the island served as a camp for captured Seminoles at the end of the Third Seminole War and was later occupied by the Union Navy during the Civil War. In 1898, as the Spanish - American War threatened, Fort Dade was built on the island and remained active until 1923. After touring the historic sites and trails, visitors can enjoy swimming, wildlife viewing, and picnicking. Located at the mouth of Tampa Bay, northwest of Anna Maria Island.

Our tour will always be led by a Florida Master Naturalist for coastal systems. We are passionate about what we do. We want to give you an experience that will create memories that'll last a lifetime. Your safety is our top priority but a close second is trying to get you to like our "office" (Sarasota Bay and the Mangrove Tunnels) as much as we do. We also feel that smaller tour groups are the way to go so we will limit the amount of people that can go on tour so you are never stuck at the back of a massive armada of kayaks. We have multiple guides and on busy days we will divide the tour into smaller groups for your enjoyment.
