  • It was lowkey and easy to get the kayaks. We enjoyed ever minute and saw several manatees. We will do it again.  more »
  • Captain Casey was an amazing tour guide!!!! The coastal kayak tour was the highlight of our vacation on Anna Maria Island and we can’t wait to come back. I would highly recommend Happy Paddler Kayak.....  more »
  • We went on the guided island tour yesterday with Jake. He, Shane and the whole experience were terrific! The boats and paddles were in great shape and everyone felt comfortable, even the rookie tandem paddlers. We saw a mangrove island rookery with lots of pelicans and herons. Jake pointed out a few Roseate Spoonbills in the interior of the trees. And our group saw 4 pods of dolphins too! Everyone had fun; we'll come here again for sure.
  • The entire place was a good experience! When we arrived we were told they had water and snacks. The nice guy who loaded us said we could use the bathrooms before we left, that he usually goes “twice!” He was funny and charming. I was especially impressed with how we were able to load into the kayaks. My aunt has a bad knee and my mom has trouble getting up and down sometimes but they provided a nice sophisticated way of loading with ease. Then Jake, our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny! He pointed out all the things we should look at such as dolphins and the bird island! Aside from that, the view was amazing! We landed on “Beer Can Island” and we’re allowed to stretch our legs, take off our shoes and explore the island. We took many photos of family, the ocean, and all things cool! I highly suggest this trip to anyone up for a small workout and family outing! You will have to paddle so just be ready! I am not sore today so I’m very thankful! I recommend this trip!
