  • Jim Neville Preserve 

A short, easy paddle from our launch site at Turtle Beach Boat Ramp, The Jim Neville Marine Preserve is a paddle trail perfect for any age or experience level. The Neville Preserve is located in Little Sarasota Bay, between Siesta Key (voted #1 beach in the U.S.) and Casey Key. The paddle trail winds around 35 acres of uninhabited, mangrove covered islands. Expect to find a diverse population of coastal birds (Ospreys, Cormorants, Pelicans, Egrets, Herons) and marine life as well (Manatees, Dolphins, Oyster beds, Small fish). On your way back from the Preserve stretch your legs at Midnight Pass, a secluded beach of Casey Key only accessible by water.
