The pictures of the mangrove tunnels don't do justice to how amazingly inspiring this place is.
The crew was so helpful and accommodating - there was a threat of a storm and we waited it out although they offered to do it the next day....More
My 13 year old and I spent the day kayaking at Weedon Island. We got there about 10:15am and knew we could rent kayaks from Sweetwater Kayaks. It was as easy as can be. The guys gave us a tandem kayak and life vests as...More
My husband and I took the Kayak beginner lessons at Sweetwater Kayaks and we can't say enough good things about the experience. We are seniors and had never been in a kayak before but had always wanted to try it. We were somewhat anxious but...More

I'm glad you had a good time on the water with us. Chad was your instructor, and like all of our coaches he is certified and has a real passion for getting others turned on to paddling.
We hope you come out and play...More
Rented 2 tandems for 2 hrs. Staff was helpful in describing where to go and was spot on with how long it would take. Dry bag was included with rental. Will be back. (Separate review of kayak trip under Weedon Island Preserve.)
The experience was very good. They are located inside the park. Get there early to get good parking. Watch the tide chart of you plan to do the entire 4 hour loop around there island.
Mangroves were the real deal. Very tight tunnels with lots...More
The man renting the kayak was really nice and even drove down to the dock to pick up our kayak. We went at high tide and didn't have any problem navigating the trail. We got a tandem kayak since we weren't sure if our 11...More
My 3 sons (ages 13, 11, and 8 years) and I rented kayaks for 4 hours and paddled the entire 4-mile loop around Weedon island. The scenery is beautiful and the mangrove tunnels are super cool. We had a challenging 45 minutes or so when...More
I'm looking for a new kayak and drove here (1.5 hours) for advise on the Eddyline and the Stellar brands. They had the three kayaks in stock that I wanted to see which was great. Brandon was very knowledgeable and helpful. Plan on taking them...More

Because the tide schedule changes daily, I would suggest that you call Sweetwater directly to get this information. The first time I paddled at Weedon Preserve, the tide was too low to access the tunnels at all. The second time I paddled there, we were able to get pretty far into the tunnels, but did not have enough time to get all the way through. On our way back, the water depth was getting pretty shallow. Everything changes daily, and of course is different depending on where you launch. Call Sweetwater @ (727) 570-4844
