Welcome to Yak Shack!

One of the many advantages of living in Florida is the breathtaking scenery that comes from being surrounded by water on three sides. No matter what time of year it is, there are areas to explore and experience. And while there’s no wrong way to enjoy Florida’s natural landscapes, at Yak Shack, we offer an alternative like none other. We’re here to introduce the majestic natural wonder of the state we call home from the vantage point of a kayak. Kayaking is a way to experience the outdoors like never before.

The Tours We Offer 

At Yak Shack, we offer many guided tours that allow you to experience different locations across Florida. These three offerings all last two hours and can give you a unique experience. 

  • Mangrove Tour – Paddle around Anna Maria Sound and Sarasota Bay to get up close and personal with the mangroves that populate the area. It’s a great place to start for beginners. The tour costs the low price of $55 and lasts for two hours. 
  • Sunset Paddle Tour – For only $65, you can also reap the benefits of collecting sand dollars. This two-hour tour is a great way to relax during your downtime and gives you the opportunity to experience the sunset over Anna Marie Island. 
  • Emerson Point Tour – Have you ever wanted to get up close and personal with the abundant wildlife of Florida? This tour will allow you to do just that. Centered around the Emerson Point Preserve, you’ll have the opportunity to commune with dolphins, manatees, sea urchins, and many more. Cap off the experience with a snorkeling trip. 

Solo and Tandem Rentals 

If you’re a more experienced boater, or you just a chance to explore and discover Florida on your own terms, we’re more to oblige. At Yak Shack, we offer solo rentals for 4 and 8-hour increments. Looking to bring along a friend or your significant other on an adventure? We rent out tandems as well to double the enjoyment of exploration. 

Gift Cards 

Looking to surprise someone for the holidays? Maybe you know someone who will be visiting the area, and they’re unsure of how to experience nature up close. We offer gift cards as well, share the love of kayaking with that special someone.
