A1A Beach Rentals is the area leader in organized outdoor activities, wildlife kayak tours and other bikeing and waterports activities.  On this tour, we'll deliver kayaks and everything necessary for your group to enjoy a private paddle at a location of your preference, or where the best daily report for manatee and dolphin activity is! This tour is a fantastic option for anyone who's kayaked previously and does not require a guide. Enjoy relaxed manatee and dolphin viewing as well as other marine wildlife at your pace, paddling where and how you wish, with the privacy of you and your group.
If you prefer a guided tour or need paddling lessons, please return to the main page and select one of our guided tours.


Most trips start at our shop where we reconfirm your tour details, and then we drive out to the preferred kayak starting point for the day, usually within 5-10 minutes. If you don't have transportation, please call us to make arrangements.
Explore our barrier island's natural marine habitat on the calm inshore waters of the bay exploring around mangrove islands, as you keep a lookout for curious manatee, and playful dolphin.
