Rookery Bay Preserve Directions
Southwest Florida and particularly, Marco Island are known for sunsets! Experience them a different way TONIGHT... on kayak while watching hundreds of birds return to there roosts for the evening. Few things top watching the sun go down over the water. Nothing tops watching the sun disappear below the horizon while in the presence of Mother Nature’s wildlife. As colors constantly change above you and paint the sky into a dynamic, every changing mosaic…Relax. Kick back. Dip into your cooler. Enjoy the show. Experience sunset differently tonight!
Our Sunset Rookery Bay Tours are great for singles, couples or the whole family. Tandem kayaks are used most often on all the trips with singles available. The rookeries are a very special place … particularly for the birds. While we will be close enough to witness this spectacular scene, we keep our distance from the birds so we do not “flush” them or their behavior. Keeping our voices low and reducing the number of kayak by using tandems, minimizes our impact on all the wildlife.
Keep your eyes and ears keen for dolphins, manatees, and sea turtles. If you are lucky you may even see the mysterious "Green Flash" as the sun sets.
Bring hats, sunblock, sunglasses, a jacket or raingear, if appropriate for the day's weather and shoes that you do not mind getting wet. Hydration is important here in the sub-tropics, so bring lots of water. If it is warm, bring bug spray (just in case!) Do not forget your cameras and binoculars and a great attitude!
