Bensmiller added, “I started out kayaking the inlets and bay in the Bonita Springs area in 2010. On the first trip out, I kayaked within feet of a pod of dolphins and had such an amazing experience as they circled the kayak, as if I were part of the pod. After the first trip, I was craving more and began

frequenting the same kayaking spots. I encountered dolphins on almost every trip out and it continued to be as magical as the first time. Needless to say, I was hooked and continued to get out on the water as much as possible. It’s this experience we want to give every customer of Paddle Naples.”
