Kayak or Paddleboard Backcountry Tours
Key West Eco Tour's Backcountry Kayak & Paddleboard tours. 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. No experience is necessary.

This experience was perfect! So hands on and my husband and I enjoyed the easy ride across the waters. I would definitely do it again!!
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.
Relaxed tour through shallow sound areas of islands.
knowledgeable and relaxed guide, saw lots of fish and wildlife, great weather. definitely will recommend.
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 :
