Want to really experience the Florida Keys?? We think there is no better way than from the calm, turquoise waters where you can discover its hidden beauty & the unspoiled wilderness that captures people’s hearts and minds!!
Blue Planet Kayak offers several fabulous ways to truly see the oceanic Florida Keys and experience this magical facet of island life. Glide over crystal clear water inches deep and escape to the seclusion of our wonderful and serene “backcountry” locales. Drift through mangrove islands on jungle-like tidal creeks. Explore “flats” where you can see and learn about the Keys’ unique marine life, birds, plants, wildlife, and geologic and natural history. Or just relax and enjoy the breathtaking views and nature!
Blue Planet offers a variety of excursions & trips including intimate guided Eco-Tours, escorted fishing charters, and even individual rentals allowing you to explore on your own. One of our favorites group ventures is their Boca Chica Tour which meanders its way through uninhabited islands of exotic red mangroves, coasts over sandy shallows brimming with vibrantly colored marine life, and drifts near a tropical island full of nesting osprey & wading birds. Popular marine life finds include sponges, coral, starfish, anemones, urchins, tropical fish, “killer snails”, queen conch, small nurse & bonnet-head sharks, stingrays, and Spotted Eagle Rays. This tour is largely sheltered from the wind and is an ideal trip for beginners and pros alike!
Another great group trip we love is the Sunset & Moonlight Tour that leads you into a world of mystery and tranquility. Watch an incredible sunset by a mangrove island as dozens of egrets, herons, pelicans and cormorants jostle for their nightly roost. Then head by headlamp through a red mangrove island at night to view nocturnal animals such as moray eels, stone crabs, lobster, squid, octopus and stingrays as they appear only inches beneath you. Enjoy the magic of an underwater light show as your paddle excites bioluminescent plankton — an incredible sight rarely seen anywhere else on the island! This is the most enchanting & unique kayak adventure around so don’t miss out!
Blue Planet’s sole business is kayaking & all of their eco-tours are very informative but laid back and lots of fun. They take a maximum of 10 paddlers per group so each trip offers a very safe, personal experience and their superb location offers great birding, tropical fish, stunning landscapes, and unforgettable sunsets —- making the trips fun for the whole family or group. So call them today and snag the chance to enjoy this spectacular, unique island experience!
