Canoe Rentals in Tierra Verde Canoe Rentals in Saint Petersburg
We have two basic rental packages for you to choose from. The "Day Trip" and the "Over Night Camping" Package. Each Package includes a 3 Person Canoe to get you and your gear to and from the island safley.
After you stroll through the website and you decide you are interested in booking an adventure with us, the first thing you need to do is give us a call. We will discuss exactly what you want to do on the island, trip duration, dates and times, avalibility, and what package and upgrades are best for you. Some people want to "rough" it and only want basic camping gear to experiance primitive camping. Others want some luxury items or maybe some fishing gear? We are here to cater to those needs.
On the day of your trip your gear will be delivered to the Fort Desoto Boat Ramp. After a brief conversation about gear, pickup time, and saftey procedures you will be ready to start your adventure. It takes about 45miniutes to paddle to Shell Key (only 15 miniutes if you get a trolling motor upgrade) .You are very likely to see dolphin, Manatee, Osprey, and other beautiful creatures along the way! Once you arrive at Shell Key you can pick a spot and set up camp. When it is time for you to leave the island just pack up your camp and paddle back to the boat ramp where i will be waiting to pick up the gear.
