CGT Kayaks started 9 years ago as Calusa Ghost Tours--a tour company specializing in paddling trips through historic parks and archaeological sites--since, our services have grown to include kayak and standup paddleboard rentals, guided tours, instruction, and sales. CGT was recently featured in The Banner as part of the 5 Questions segment. Learn more about us.
We have two shops and several launch locations in Southwest Florida, and are the authorized paddlecraft vendor for the City of Bonita Springs. Check out our rentals page for more info.
