Perfect Day

Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We liked how our large group was divided into two smaller groups to make the experience more enjoyable and less “congested.” We appreciated seeing some of the customer reviews on larger crowds being addressed. Water was smooth and clear. Going through mangroves was the highlight. We did see a nurse shark and a manatee.

It was a beautiful paddle into the mangroves. We learned a lot from our guide about the ecosystem of the Keys. You could tell that he loved his job. He pointed out unique details that we might have overlooked. It was a little windy the day we went so no manatee sightings, but he pointed out the nestlings that had recently hatched of the green heron. It was a fun afternoon.

It was a nice relaxing trip overall we enjoyed it, we didn’t see much wildlife but I know that’s not guaranteed. Our guide Mike was ok, not much of a personality, never checked to make sure everyone was caught up before explaining things, overall if you just wanna kayak I recommend if your looking to learn about the mangroves I wouldn’t recommend

Guided kayaking at its best

Brittany worked hard to ensure we saw as much sealife and birds as possible on top of taking dozens of photos of us and admonishing boaters and jet skiers they were in a no wake zone. No manatee sightings but it wasn’t for lack of trying. Check in staff was friendly, helpful and rebooked us when we discovered I’d made res for the wrong day😎

The entire experience was AMAZING! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and helpful. He made sure that the group stuck together and he took us to areas where we could see fish and took us to swimming holes. Such a wonderful experience.

First time for all of us kayaking the ocean canals, and having fun with family. Unfortunately we didn’t see any manatees-but we realize that can’t be controlled. One person in our group was having kayaking difficulties, thankfully my sons friend helped him because our guide really didn’t. All-in-all a great afternoon!

Brittany did a fantastic job of leading us through our kayaking trip. She was friendly, knowledgeable and encouraging to everyone - especially those who were new to kayaking. She made sure that we found some manatees, a momma and a baby, which was a bucket list item for me! Well worth the money! I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you!

We had a great time with Suzanne ! She took the time to travel down a canal so our son could see a manatee for his birthday !!! Was so cool to have it swim right under our kayaks ! Was a great experience, so cool to be in the mangroves ! Would do it again in a heartbeat!
