What you'll do

**Covid Update** Unfortunately due to the current state of CA I will be putting this experience on hold until further notice, but please reach out if you’d like to discuss a kayaking date in 2021 :)

I'll take you kayaking around Alamitos Bay for about an hour while capturing 10 high quality photos of your adventure! I'm a photographer by trade and kayaking is one of my favorite hobbies so I figured, why not combine the two and create a memorable experience I can share?! :D

Alamitos Bay is one of my favorite places to kayak in with friendly locals, calm waters, and beautiful views. We'll cruise through canals, under bridges, and alongside beautiful boats and houses.

Monday sunrise sessions will be dedicated to picking up trash in the bay while we kayak and the surrounding beach afterwards. If you'd like to help me keep our oceans clean, look for the discounted Monday sunrise session :)

We'll be using my sit-inside kayaks (weight capacity 260lbs) They're very stable and fun for leisure trips around the bay. And if it's your first time kayaking, no worries, I'll show you the ropes. It's easy!

Don't see a date/time that works for you or interested in a sunset session? Message me and we'll see if we can work out a day that matches both of our schedules! :)

Where you'll be

There is so much to see in Alamitos Bay with beautiful views around every corner. Depending on time and what you're interested in, we can kayak under bridges, 'round the famous Naples canals, and with every path soak in the lovely views of homes, boats, and wildlife. We'll be launching from a small beach so be prepared to get a little sandy and wet up to your calves.

We thoroughly enjoyed our kayak tour with Mary. She is delightful and took things at whatever pace we needed. Seeing the architecture of all the different homes on the canal from this perspective is a real treat. Her photos were great fun to have. Overall, a very relaxing, zen-like experience, gaining knowledge of Naples and just soaking up these interesting waterways.
