About Chadillac Adventures

A Little About Chadillac Adventures

Chadillac Adventures was started by Chad Mead in 2019.  We offer rentals and tours with paddleboards and kayaks for families, couples, and anyone who loves to be out on the water!  Around here we like to say, “The ship don’t make the captain, the CAPTAIN makes the SHIP!”

We love to give people the joy and sense of adventure that comes with paddling around the waterways of Tampa Bay and surrounding areas.  We couldn’t be more proud to be located at Clearwater’s “hidden gem” called Cove Cay Marina.

Our mission statement is simple, to give fun and family-friendly adventures on the water to everyone!  We have great experience and knowledge of the waterways around Cove Cay and hope to give you and your group an adventure they won’t forget anytime soon!

A Message from Our Founder, Chad Mead

Hi, I’m Chad and I’m proud to bring you Chadillac Adventures! 

Although Florida is best known for its beautiful beaches what most people don’t realize, is that beyond the sandy beaches, beneath the ground of our feet is an underground circuit of tunnels and windows filled with some of the clearest water on Earth.

Florida has many springs to choose from for a summer “cool down” or a “manatee express” during the winter months.

Lucky for us, Florida is blessed with more than 700 springs that hold shimmering shades of aqua blues and emerald greens. From deep within the aquifer eight billion gallons of water flow from the Florida Springs each day at a constant 72 degrees.

Most of the springs are located in the central and northern parts of the state allowing me to offer visitors an array of recreational opportunities while providing a level of protection for the essential natural resources.

So if you’d like to try new adventures boating, paddleboarding, or kayaking, come walk on water with Chadillac Adventures!  I hope to see you soon.  As we say around here, HAPPY PADDLING!!!
