Whereas participants in kayaks are ready to go from the moment they hit the water. For this reason we offer variations of tours through the mangroves.

What Our Customers Say

"My husband was a first time SUP and his experience was fabulous. Nicole gave great instruction and was very encouraging. His fear abated, he began to enjoy this new adventure. I enjoyed her knowledge of the habitat. Please call Seashore Eco Tours and enjoy a great experience on the paddleboard! She is great!"

"I have always enjoyed my experiences with Seashore Eco Tours. It is always very fun, educational, relaxing, and entertaining! If you have never done it before, instruction and demonstration is provided. All the equipment that you will need is provided. If you have your own paddleboard, you can use it and still go along with a tour group. I like the tour group. Even though I have my own paddleboard, I usually go with the group and use the provided boards. Easier and fun to be with a group. I recommend wearing good blocker, shades and a hat. Have fun!"
