About Us

Atlantic Coast Kayak Company offers kayak and SUP rentals as well as guided and unguided tours for groups of up to 180 people. Our staff is nothing short of amazing. Our guides know a great deal about the Middle River and surrounding area, where the tours take place. We tell our guests about how the river was in its original, natural state, how it got to be the way it is now, and who the people were that were influential in the processes that brought about the changes that took place. Additionally, they know most of the native and non-native birds and animals on the tour and many of the trees and tropical plants. They know where to find the animals and help our guests to gain a real sense of perspective as to how this urban eco-system thrives in the middle of the city. The river is full of life, inhabited by an abundance and wide variety of animals, birds, fish and other aquatic creatures including but not limited to Ospreys, Ducks, Cormorants, Herons, Ibises, Egrets, 5 ft Iguanas, Raccoons, Crabs, Tarpon, Snook, Jacks, Manatees and more! We treat our guests to the best that the river has to offer, and outfit them with the best gear. We have a fine fleet of high quality watercraft including stand up paddle boards as well as single and tandem kayaks. We use only fiberglass paddles, and have PFDs for all of our guests from plus size adults to toddlers and even a few for service dogs. We are disability friendly and can help those who require assistance to enter and exit the watercraft. We give each group basic kayaking or paddle board lessons before setting out on the water, those are free! Upon your return to our dock, the staff will open a complimentary fresh coconut for your enjoyment!


Our tours are above and beyond what you might expect. We include all the finest equipment, basic paddling lessons, incredible snacks, and highly trained professional guides. The guide will point out local wildlife and vegetation along the route. You're welcome to venture out on your own or with your group. A map is included to assist with navigating the river. A calm and peaceful paddle is fun for the entire family.
