The most rewarding part of this endeavor is when guests tell us that this was the highlight of their vacation. At Happy Paddler, that is what we strive for. Our goal is to exceed our guests' expectations by providing a deeply engaging, unforgettable experience. We are passionate about the environment that we work and play in, and combined with our local knowledge, expertise, and years of experience, we hope our all our guests feel the same enthusiasm in having shared an authentic Florida experience.
Our base of operation is our beloved Anna Maria Island but we venture far and wide to provide you with the best experience possible. We offer spectacular nature tours, romantic sunset and full moon tours, and kayak rentals. We specialize in tailor-made trips for couples, families, and organized groups. We also offer extensive private expedition services, paddle lessons, naturalist courses, and assistance with media productions on Florida's wilder side.
