Welcome To

The Shell Key Adventure

This is Chadillac’s favorite saltwater/intracoastal guided tour.  Shell Key is one of the top 10 paddling destinations in Florida.

In this untouched, marine environment you can see dolphins and manatees, paddle through a mangrove forest, and enjoy pristine white sandy beaches.  These beaches do not have public access except from the water, so kayaking is the only way to reach these shores.

Get ready to collect shells, see an abundance of wildlife, snorkel, and enjoy one of the prettiest sandbars in the state!

I recently had the pleasure of going kayaking with Garrett from Chadillac Adventures, and it was an absolutely wonderful experience! The route we took was scenic and perfectly chosen, making the kayaking both enjoyable and memorable. Despite being just 17 years old, Garrett showed a level of professionalism and skill that surpassed all expectations. He was incredibly knowledgeable about kayaking techniques, ensuring that everyone felt comfortable and confident on the water. His customer service was top-notch; he was attentive, friendly, and genuinely cared about making the experience enjoyable for everyone. I strongly believe that such dedication and hard work deserve recognition. Therefore, I would kindly ask the owner to consider giving Garrett a bonus for his exceptional service. He truly enhances the experience for Chadillac Adventures’ customers and is a great asset to your team!

Perfect spot for paddle boarding through some awesome mangroves! There were a lot of sand bars and places to swim. We called ahead and asked about our dog joining us for the first time and they were super helpful.

Hidden gem in Clearwater, bought a Groupon and decided to use it last weekend and boy were we impressed. Nice area to kayak, they have a snack bar on site serving chicken wings, and also serve beer and wine. Staff was really friendly, Garrett provided us with information on were to go and what we would see depending on the journey. You do have to enter Cove Cay condo's by taking a right hand turn, stopping at the security booth, then you can enter the Marina a short distance by taking the first left hand turn, be careful because you could miss the turn off Frontage Road into the condo area. We had a beautiful day on the water and forgot our cooler in the snack bar area, we called up the next day, were told they had it and picked it up. They are very nice, honest, friendly, group of people. Don't hesitate to check them out, check Groupon for coupons as well, as they honor Groupon deals. Happy Kayaking

Lots of fun and worth every penny. Made lots of great memories with my family and it was a very stress free day. We will definitely be coming back in the future. Update 4/20/2024- Finally made our way back to this adventure! Had an amazing day out on the water celebrating 5 years of marriage. The gentlemen that helped us this time was super nice and informative! We had a blast and will continue recommending this place to friends and family! We will try to come again soon!
