Key West Paddle Board Eco-Tour
Explore the Key West backcountry
Along with your experienced guide, you will paddle at a relaxing pace and explore the shallow, calm, blue-green waters of the backcountry of Key West.
You will glide through the winding mangrove creeks and paddle through inches of water, where you can easily view and learn about the geological structure of the Keys along with their inhabitants.
Your adventure will give you a chance to view the mangrove environment up close, along with its marine life including tropical fish, crabs, sea stars, jellyfish, sea cucumbers, sponges and various aquatic birds.
This tour runs every day at 10:00 and 2:00. Please note, we often don’t have enough folks to run this tour on its own. If less than 6 guests total booked (whether your party or not), you’ll go with the kayakers (you can still be on a board or switch to a kayak). You can also switch to a rental and go on your own (you’ll be refunded the difference). No matter if you choose the tour or a rental, a lesson is included!
NOTE: At times the conditions may not be great for beginners. We’ll inform you of the conditions and you can either still go, switch to kayaks or cancel and refund up to time of departure (direct bookings only) We have zero control over the currents and wind!
Complimentary round trip transportation is available for all of our tours when you book direct with 24 hours notice. Once you book, confirmation will have details on how to arrange

This adventure is operated by Lazy Dog
Look, we understand the bars are open until 4 am. All we ask is that you give us 12 hours cancellation for full refund if you feel you’ll suddenly become “ill” the next day so that we may give your spot to someone else. Or come anyway! sweat it out then some hair of the dog at the dock side bar!
As far as the weather, don’t believe the hype. 80% chance of rain usually means it’ll be a passing shower at some point and usually overnight. We only cancel the tour if there is lightning in the area
If it’s windy, we can usually hide. We’ll for sure give you a warning if we think you’ll have an issue. Please heed the warning as we know what we’re talking about and we just want you to have the best possible vacation experience.
