Overview

Escape the crowds of Key West for a couple of hours on this Geiger Key kayaking tour that introduces you to the natural environment of the Florida Keys. Just 15 minutes from downtown Key West, Geiger Key is home to winding mangrove trails that you'll explore with a nature guide. Watch for birds and other marine life of the mangrove ecosystem, and enjoy being on the water. When booking, you have your choice of a morning or afternoon departure time as well as your choice of a kayak or stand-up paddleboard (SUP).
  • 4-hour Geiger Key tour from Key West with two hours of kayaking
  • Look for native birds and marine life as you paddle through the mangroves
  • See sharks, rays, and jellyfish
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Small-group tour limited to 10 provides a more personalized experience
Your tour starts with hotel pickup in Key West by shuttle van for the 15-minute ride to Geiger Key. When you arrive, listen to some paddling instructions from your guide, and receive a dry bag for your personal belongings. Bottled water and equipment are included, and an easy-access ramp with a handrail provides a safe way to board your kayak. 

After easing into the water with the help of your guide, start paddling through the mangrove trails, creeks, and flats surrounding Geiger Key. Watch for a variety of birds and marine animals such as sea stars along the prop roots, continuing across the shallow grass flats where you may spot rays, barracudas, or nurse sharks swimming in 2 to 3 feet (0.6 to 0.9 meters) of water. 

Then glide into a hard-bottom community to look for upside down jellyfish, sea snails, and conch before starting the paddle back to the starting point. There are six different routes your guide will choose from to make sure you have the easiest return paddle possible, hopefully avoiding paddling into the wind. Throughout your tour, learn from your guide about this tropical ecosystem and how the mangrove islands and seagrass beds serve as a marine nursery for Key West’s fish, birds, and other creatures.

When you return to land, restrooms and a freshwater rinse are available for you to use. Total tour time is four hours with two hours spent on the water. No experience is necessary.

Tortuga Jack was the best guide the kayaking was relatively easy and the sights were incredible. This tour gives visitors an appreciation for the nature surrounding the Keys. Jack gave us a really good history lesson in addition to talking about the ecosystems present in a mangrove.

Awesome tour! Margot was a great tour guide and pointed out a lot of interesting fauna and flora along the way. Some portuguese man o wars made their way into our kayaks, but Margot did a good job of getting them out right away. Great small tour, highly recommended!

Ended up doing a different tour because no one else booked this with me, but I loved what I did. Our boat captain was friendly and knowledgeable, we kayaked and eco-information was shared, we went snorkeling and had a fantastic lunch! Next time I go to Key West, I'll try to do this one again :
