Wiggins Pass Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Here is an easy, enjoyable paddle through mangroves and along the beach. Development has spoiled some of the natural appearance of the area, but it still offers some beautiful paddling. The beaches on the Gulf face west here and often provide good surfing conditions—“the best in the Naples area,” according to Chris Siegfried, once the larger-than-life owner of Naples Sea Kayaking Adventures. Sadly, Chris and his company are no longer with us, but he loved playing in the waves off the beach here in his kayak when there was a good storm.

The west-facing beach also makes a perfect grandstand for viewing the sunset. The direct return route from the entrance to Wiggins Pass is less than 1 mile, so you can watch the sunset and still have time to make an easy return to the launch site before dark. During a full moon you might enjoy the return by moonlight."
