Delivering Naples’ Best Paddling and Fishing Experience
We offer a wide variety of popular guided tours and rental options to ensure you can enjoy the best possible experience out on the water!
Our family-friendly paddling routes and fishing spots are among the best in Southwest Florida and allow you to experience the mangroves trails and tunnels, Gulf of Mexico, and Estero Bay!
During a guided eco-tour you will have the chance to be up close with marine life and it’s quite common to see dolphins, manatees, and many species of birds.
We are open Monday through Sunday from 8am to 5pm. Dogs are welcome to join in the paddling adventures.
About CAPT. Brent Bensmiller
FOUNDER, PADDLE NAPLES
Soon after moving to Naples from Houston in 2008, I was spending the majority of my free time fishing and paddling the inshore waters and mangrove trails of Estero Bay.
Kayaking provided the perfect way to explore the less traveled waterways, while enjoying nature and catching fish that weren’t seeing lures everyday. After exploring the area I quickly realized what an amazing fishery and ecosystem Estero Bay had to offer and needless to say, I became hooked!
I’m an avid angler and paddler that would love to guide you through our beautiful area and teach you tactics to become a better fisherman!
Join Paddle Naples on a guided tour and let us show you the true beauty of Southwest Florida!
