Families- request family-friendly guide!

Overall this was a nice excursion - however after doing many of these - it really depends on who your guide is as to whether you will have a good experience. Our guide - Sarah - was knowledgable - just didn't seem to want to be there. We have 3 children - and often felt rushed through the experience - which is a shame because it is so beautiful out there and there is so much to see and learn. On a few occasions she was obviously bothered we were lagging and would yell out to the kids to hurry up. After we requested two separate kayaks for our 9 and 10 year old boys - she still put them in a double - which for an experienced kayaker is fine but for two beginners is definitely more difficult to navigate through the mangroves. So - just a heads up for families -It's a beautiful place - just make sure your guide is family friendly (patient) and likes kids. This particular trip definitely felt rushed which was a major detraction from the overall experience.

It was enjoyable to have such a close encounter with the environment around Key West. The kayaks were easy to use and a nice easy amount of exercise. The guide was very informational and made sure that everyone had an opportunity to interact with the sealife. Was definitely a highlight for my week in Key West.

The teenagers and adults in our group all loved the kayak trip. The guide was phenomenal and genuinely interested in making this a learning adventure. He found and identified countless species and gave descriptions of their habitats, digestive and reproductive systems, and other detailed information. It was like kayaking with Bill Nye the Science Guy! We especially loved stopping on the sandbar to explore and find sea creatures to discuss. Every minute was fun and worthwhile.

Katie did a nice job of paddling to our level. Very good explanations of the fawn and fauna and interdependence. Nice eco-tour, and not a hard trip.

Mangrove Swamp by Headlamp

I really enjoyed kayaking to bird island and then watching the sunset. Then we kayaked to a mangrove island and put on headlamps. It was spooky and fun. The bay we crossed was very shallow so there were few other boats or traffic. When we were in the mangroves we couldn't tell which way was out or see any lights of the roads or bridges around the area. Great fun.

Chad did a wonderful job of describing the environment and the animal life. Also, my wife needed assistance after getting stuck on a sand bar, and he was most helpful!

The highlight of the Florida Keys

I love seeing the "real" place when I go on vacation and not the tourist shops. This was it. Back to nature, REAL, and James was an awesome guide! We saw so many amazing things and the kids loved kayaking through the mysterious mangroves.

Families will love this!

I did the trip with my 10 year-old son who loved it! I was concerned there would be too much paddling for him but he came through with flying colours and absolutely loved getting to handle "slimy" sea creatures! James our guide was great. He must have been fed up with us getting caught up in the mangroves time after time but it didn't show. A good time was had by all and I thoroughly recommend this trip! Only downside is the drive out there - a $30 taxi ride - so I recommend taking the transportation that is offered by them!

These guys do a great job. We've gone twice now and plan to go every time we're in Key West. Really cool tour, through some beautiful areas with a great guide who's really knowledgeable about the local environment. We took our 2 boys (5 and 1.5) and they loved it.

Boca Chica Eco Tour

Blue Planet provided very nice and stable kayaks, suitable for beginners as well as experienced paddlers. They have a good location to launch and make it a very pleasant trip. Chad is a very knowledgeable guide and gave us great information about the area and a number of interesting facts about the sea creatures and their habitat.
