Exercise, education and fun rolled into one!
Fri, Dec 27, 13   10:30 AM jbravo10 Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I went on a tandem kayak with my 4 year old daughter. It was great fun for me and her. Kayaking through the mangroves was like an adventure for her. It was very educational and both of us learnt quite a bit (importance of algae in our ecosystem). She got to hold star-fish and queen conchs, look at sea slugs, jellies (Cassiopea), many marine birds.The pace was relaxing but always on the move and never boring. The kayak's paddles dismantled in two parts, and we were able to paddle canoe-style for a little while. The half-paddle was just the right size for my 4 year old to handle and she was excited to be able to move the kayak by herself. James, our guide, was awesome! Highly recommend Blue Planet Kayak Tours.

COULD GET THERE ON OUR OWN WITH A GOOD MAP
Fri, Dec 26, 08   1:10 PM jblakney Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Had a great time but missed our pick up time due to confusing instructions in the paperwork, Luckily we were able to reschedule that afternoon...clarify pick up time. Also, do not think we need a pick up time and place only to caravan behind the pickup van through lots of traffic to drive past our condo and to our destination. ..we could have avoided waiting in Wendy's parking lot by haveing a detainedl and tried and true map to get there on our own. The trip was fun otherwise! Nice guide!

a good alternative activity when the weather was..

...too chilly for snorkeling. My husband and I are kayaking novices in pretty good shape who enjoy outdoor activities and nature watching- well, I do very much and he goes along to keep me company! The guide on this trip was low key, friendly, informative. We got to see/hold conchs, a starfish, sea cucumber, sea urchin, sea slug and had a long look at a beautiful great blue heron who posed nearby in a tree. We often brought up the rear in our mixed-age group of ten people, but had a great time and definitely would do it again & recommend it to everyone from ten to eighty. Bring along binoculars if you have them and wear water shoes or sandals and a jacket if it's chilly like it was in the Keys last week!

Great Experience - First Time Kayaker's
Tue, Apr 19, 11   10:30 AM jarmstrong99 Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
After getting over the initial fears of being first time kayaker's, we had a great time. We saw a couple of rays and other sea life. The tour company was great, Chris our guide answered any question the group had about the area and the things we saw. Next time we will try the night tour, since we were told that some sea life will hide during the day to avoid the sun.

We went on the sunset eco kayak tour.

James was an amazing guide and teacher. He was patient (I had never kayaked), extremely knowledgeable, and fun. He picked up conch, urchins, star fish, ocean spotted hare, and more. We saw and learned so much. I was afraid of the strength I needed to kayak in the ocean and if I could keep up. The pace was very good and so memorable and enjoyable. FANTASTIC trip!

Super Moon Moonlit Kayak Tour
Sat, May 5, 12   7:00 PM JANNIEBABE Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
TOTALLY enjoyed this kayak with Chad as our guide. My husband and I are recreational kayakers, but this was exciting and so interesting. We kayaked across a beautiful bay, saw an active rookery (so many birds!), and were able to view the SuperMoon as it came up and illuminated the sky. We also kayaked thru several mangrove islands and were able to see starfish, a sea slug, a jellyfish and more beautiful birds than I have ever seen. Can't say enough about how well run this excursion is. The driver that picked us up at the hotel started the whole thing off with a wonderful sense of humor that had us laughing before we knew it. I heartily recommend this outing to anyone with a love of the ocean and the outdoors. Be aware that the tunnels thru the mangroves are small and cramped if you dislike small spaces - but that is a small part of this tour. Enjoy!

Educational, Informative & Fun

Katie, our guide, was full of local information about the wildlife, habitat & the ecosystem & how everything comes full circle. We could have spent hours out there & still have not seen all that we would have wanted to. We will be back to spend more time in Key West & kayaking this beautiful region with Blue Panet. Thanks, Janice & Andy, Kitchener, Ont. CA

My husband and I were visiting the Keys for the first time and I had read about this tour on Trip Advisor .... We highy recommend this activity. The guide was informative and found things in the mangrove for us all to see and touch if we wanted .... ( except no touching those jellyfish ! ) it was a beautiful sunny not to windy day ... we took the afternoon tour and they picked us up at our Hotel ( Hilton ) .... we will do this again next time we are in the Keys !

amazing experience

Even though in the water we only saw, shrimp, starfish and a jellyfish, this was a fantastic kayak trip. Going at night was such a thrill. The rookery was wonderful. Seeing all those birds come in to roost was worth the trip.

Great Sunset eco tour!
Tue, Mar 24, 09   6:45 PM JanetCraig Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Chad, the owner and tour guide, was great.  The driver that picked us up at our hotel was pleasant also. Everything we needed was supplied , including instruction for 2 beginners of kayaking.  It was a beautiful evening and Chad shared many creatures and interesting facts about vegetation and wildlife of the area.

Fab and informative way to spend an evening in KW
Wed, Mar 27, 13   6:45 PM janedodds Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Booked this trip after reading reviews on Trip Advisor, and were so pleased we did! This has to be up there as one of the best things we have done on our travels, so unusual! We shared a double kayak, and were part of a group of around 10. Saw a fab sunset before donning our head torches and heading into the mangroves in the dark, which was a surreal experience. So peaceful. Katy spent lots of time looking for interesting things to share with the group, crabs etc and even a Conch. Would definatley recommend this trip!

It was truly a wonderful experience. If you want to experience kayaking at its best , please call these folks for the nighttime kayak tour. Just great! No experience needed but kids over 10 best if in their own kayak which I strongly recommend. Thanks Sarah for the experience
