Here at Ibis Bay we provide clear bottom kayak and SUP paddle board rentals on calm protected waters without any boat traffic. When you rent a kayak or paddleboard you will glide over diverse areas of interest - sandbars, mangroves and deep water channels.

Stingrays, anemones, sea cucumbers, crabs and many more made their home here and will let you observe their daily life from your SUP or through the clear bottom of your kayak. We also provide top of the line guided kayaking and paddle boarding tours. For our day tour we will shuttle you to one of the most beautiful paddling trails in the Keys. You will spend around 3 hours on the water kayaking or stand up paddleboarding on the open ocean and through mangrove forests. All instructions are provided by our experienced guides so you can be confident in your kayak or on the paddle board. The fun doesn't stop at Ibis Bay. When the Sun goes down we are getting ready for night kayaking and SUP paddleboarding adventures. We attach 2000 lumens Nocaqua LED lights to the bottoms of our paddle boards and clear kayaks so you can experience night paddling like never before. Fish and crabs, octopus and stingrays follow our paddling illuminated tour to give you exclusive look at their nightly activities. We are the only company in Key West doing the night kayak and SUP tours the way they should be done. Forget the tiny lights on your head, forget the darkness around, don't worry about the heat, you're not gonna need the sunscreen for that one too. Call us before 5pm and book your night paddling adventure with Ibis Bay Paddle Sports. Night paddle tours in Key West is a must!

Never do the Kayak at night with light - total waste of money and time. Value less than $20, but you pay like $65! We have been around, and this might be good in the Red Sea, Bali, Cock Island, etc., but NOT in Key West. /Jens

They are located closer to town than our usual paddle place (Lazy Dog) and we went there specifically to try out glass bottomed kayaks. Very cool and very nice staff. The location wasn't great though. They... More

However, the location is quite far from the best paddling (in the mangroves and on the canal) as it take about 50 minutes to get there. We didn't realize this which is not their fault, but does make me think that next... More

We were booked to do nightboarding (paddle boarding) but the water was a little too rough for that, so we were equipped with LED lights in glass bottom kagyaks and sent out after our guide to do some night kayaking. It was a little scary to be out in the pitch black, but also very fun. A couple of the... More
