Overview

Adventure through Tarpon Springs in your 100% clear kayak! You’ll enjoy a tranquil paddle through the bayous of Tarpon Springs. You’ll launch from the Tarpon Springs Yacht Club, kayak through the bayous, see Victorian-style mansions, and pass by the picturesque Craig Park. You’ll then paddle into Spring Bayou, a warm water area with frequent manatee sightings!

Look for manatees while you take in the scenery. Manatees use the warmer water of Spring Bayou as a sanctuary during the winter months. Along the way, your guide will keep an eye out for other wildlife including dolphins and a variety of birds. Chances are that you’ll see a variety of wildlife, but sightings are random and not guaranteed.

Learn about Tarpon Springs from your 5-star rated eco-tour guide. Hear about local history, wildlife, and ecosystems. Along the way, you’ll hear about Greek culture and the famous Sponge Docks. Your guide will be happy to take photos and make sure you have fun along the way!

Tatiana and Mickie were some of the best guides! We were inexperienced kayakers, but pros by the end. On this trip, we got to hang out with manatees in Tarpon Springs, and we learned a lot about the area. We will definitely be booking another kayak tour with Get Up and Go Kayaking.

We took the tour with guide Lacey, and had a great experience. Weather was perfect -- one caveat is the time of day -- try to go earlier than 2-3 pm because of angle of sun on water; this late, the angle makes it harder to see around and ahead of kayak into the water. Still, Lacey took us to surefire places, and we saw quite a few manatees. She is very good and knowledgeable -- we felt we were in good hands all the time! Highly recommend her tour!

The manatee experience. Our guide, Richard, was so informative and friendly. He pointed out wildlife along the route and discussed the ecosystem, such as the Mangroves.

My daughter and I had the very best time on our recent trip in Tarpon Springs. Our tour guide, Richard, was so friendly and informative. We felt like we were kayaking with a long time friend. He was so helpful getting our kayaks launched and helping us into and out of the kayaks. He talked to us about the many birds and fish we saw and let us hang out while we watched the manatees. I cannot recommend Clear Kayak Tpur of Tarpon Springs, and especially Richard, enough.

Jenna was amazing! Very informative and friendly. We saw a lot of manatees today! It was a little windy today so we also got a great workout.

Emma,our kayak guide,reviewed the indicated safety rules. Especially, about the ones dealing with the manatees. She was good at explaining about the nature that was around us-Cypress knees, cormorants and especially the manatees. We spent some time enjoying the manatees when they would come up for air and breaching the water. I would definitely recommend this tour,especially with Emma.

We had Richard as a guide and he was fantastic. Great stories and a very educational trip. We saw a dozen or so manatees on our trip. It was freezing when we went (in the low 40s) and Richard jumped in the water to grab our kayaks so we wouldn’t have to. Would highly recommend!

My husband & I loved the tour !!! We saw so many manatees but the best part was we saw two babies. Jenna our guide was was awesome, super sweet & super knowledgeable. She even taught us native Floridians who spend a lot of time in the water a lot we didn’t know .
