Paddling Center at Shingle Creek
Get outside and experience Florida’s natural beauty at the Paddling Center at Shingle Creek. Tour packages will take you through towering cypresses and rustling grasses as you glide through the Florida Everglades in a kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard.
These eco-friendly tours are a perfect way to get away from the crowds and experience Florida for its majestic beauty.
The Paddling Center offers multiple different tours that range in time and focus. You’ll join certified guides on tours that will take you down the headwaters of the Everglades through a gorgeous cypress forest, spend time floating among the manatees, take you down class 1 rapids, or even have you out on the stillness of the water under a bright full moon.
Private tours can also be booked for families, couples, and group events. Want to really wow your partner for a special night? Consider booking a couple’s bioluminescence night tour and watch the water shimmer glow with this beautiful phenomena.
If you’re not feeling the idea of a guided tour, reserve a kayak, canoe, or SUP for yourself and go out on the headwaters on your own. Spend some alone time soaking up all the beauty of the Florida waterways, or spend time with your family as you glide down the water watching for birds and turtles.
Reservations are recommended for the Paddling Center at Shingle Creek, and all paddling equipment is included with the rentals. Come prepared with sunscreen, bug spray, UV protectant clothing, and a hat. Group events and BBQs can be booked for large, family or corporate events and there are discounts offered for multi-equipment, multi-hour rentals.
