- Experience aquatic life like never before
Experience the water like never before
An experience you'll never forget! See Manatees, Dolphins, Rays & other marine life from the unique perspective of a totally transparent kayak/canoe hybrid from See Through Canoe. See the beautiful Islands of Fort Desoto & Shell Key Preserve, with their classic views of the soft white sand, sea oats & shells that make so many people fall in love with Florida.
While you're kayaking, Mantees & Dolphins are always likely, but of course, we can't gaurantee what you'll see. What we can promise, is that the experience will be a memorable one. And with a little luck, you'll have a manatee or dolphin come right up to you to check you out. It happens regularly when you're in a See Through Canoe.

We usually meet you at Fort DeSoto or Shell Key Island. Both of these places are typically calm and shallow waters with a lot of marine life to see, & of course dolphins & manatees. There are numerous mangrove islands as well as beautiful islands with white sandy beaches and great shelling. Between Dec & April, we also go to other locations where our kayak renters are very likely to see manatees. Dolphin can be seen at Fort DeSoto & Shell Key year round, however manatees are usually only in this area between May & November. Whatever the time of year, we have a very high success ratio of our renters seeing manatees.
We always have a few brand new canoes in stock at our shop. They are See Through Canoe brand transparent kayak/canoe hybrids. If you decide you enjoyed your See Through Canoe so much you want to buy one, you can pick one up at our shop near downtown St Petersburg, Florida. We also have all of the accessories on hand such as the Bimini shade tops & whisper quiet motors with the hand held remote. If you aren't in the area, & would like a See Through Canoe delivered to you, the See Through Canoe Company can ship one to you almost anywhere in the world.
