Fun Trip - For the semi adventurous

At first the guide was late (15-20 mins). There was a mix up between the office and him on the meeting location. But things happen and we didn't really make a big deal about it. In summary there is nothing glamorous about this trip but the guys were real nice and knowledgable about the area and marine life. We saw the sunset even though we were running behind which was nice, got up close with some birds and marine life. Really enjoyed it actually but not really a romantic trip.

Had a great time, however, the family that joined

us was late for the pick-up time, two children and parents. They were not really prepared, they had no sunblock, no hat for the fair redheaded son, and not much experience kayaking. It was very windy that day and the father and son were in a double kayak, and could not keep up, so finally they decided to just paddle near the dock. The mother and daughter did ok, but slowed everyone up. The guide was very patient with them.. and he was very interesting. The bathroom we had to use at the garage next door needed some help....

was a great kayak paddle, went through mangrove trails and guide would stop to point out the interesting plant & wildlife above and below the water. we saw alot of aquatic life that the guide would pick off the shallows and explaine the specie and what they do. my wife and i highly recommend this experience to all interested. Thanks for the time. By: Rob & Amy

Excellent informative adventure

My family truly enjoyed our time with our guide James- he explained in great detail the various ocean life we saw and made sure everyone was safe. Keeping two 17 year old girls engaged for over 2 hours is definitely a feat and our guide was up to the challenge. We talked about the kayak adventure the rest of the day - our only regret was that no one in the group had a camera. Thank you

Fun and educational for the whole family!!

We had a great time on our kayaking tour with James. My husband and I with our two children ages 9 and 10, had no experience kayaking. James made us feel comfortable with the kayaks, and it was easy enough to get the hang of it. James really worked hard to find several examples of marine life to let us hold. The creeks going through the mangroves are not to be missed. We loved the entire trip! Thanks James!!

Very Cool

Even though it was windy and there was a lot of fish kill (from the cold weather), I really enjoyed the kyaking trip. The mangroves were beautiful, the guide was knowledgeable and very friendly and it was a great time. I can't wait to come back and do the sunset kyaking! The kyaks were also very comfortable and provided great back support (a problem I've had with other kyaks).

Great tour. Could use more time in the mangroves themselves versus the ocean but a worthwhile experience.

Spectacular Day on the Water!
Mon, Jan 16, 12   10:30 AM sgharvey Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The day was perfect, our guide Pat was superb! He went out of his way to find a few interesting fauna that otherwise I would not have been aware of, a sea hare, a cassiopeia jellyfish, starfish, a huge hermit crab, live conch, some interesting crabs that hang out in the mangrove, and beware of fire sponges. It was one of the best outings we have done while visiting our family in Key West. Highly recommend this to anyone.

Kooky Office, Great Time
Fri, Aug 8, 08   10:30 AM Sediraswolf Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I saw the tour on one of the key west websites and it looked like a good time. I made reservations and they try to pick you up as conveniently as possible. However, when it came to dealing with the office, they were a little unorganized. They switched our day because not enough people were signed up--they want approximately 10. Once we actually got picked up and out to the key, however, it was beautiful. It was a wonderful time and our tour guide knew what he was doing and could answer questions. My advice is to take the guided tour--if you just rent the kayak, you'll see plenty of blue water, but you won't see nearly as much marine life or have such a great time.

Fun, Relaxing, Educational Trip
Mon, Apr 2, 12   10:30 AM SDuenas Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had great weather and our guide Pat was great. We had four kids with us (ages 11-15) and they enjoyed it. Our guide pointed out numerous sea creatures along the way and we even got to hold and or touch many of them. It was a little challenging maneuvering through some of the mangroves, but we all had fun. Even got to see a shark!

Very memorable experience

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two and a half hour kayak trip through various habitats near Key West with Blue Earth Kayak. We went on the Romantic Sunset, Starlight, and Full Moon Tour. James, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and able to describe interesting facts about the large variety of sea life we observed and some that we were able to touch and handle; as well has how they were affected by the tides and seasons. We paddled around a bird "island" where we saw pelicans, cormorants, egrets, and others in large groups. We donned our headlamps as it got dark and paddled through mangrove creeks to observe shrimp with florescent eyes, starfish, sea cucumber, sea urchin, and other species. We enjoyed the peaceful paddle back to the shore in the starlight and the stop to see the phosphorescence in the shallow sea grasses (James will have to explain what exactly that was). We highly recommend this trip to others that enjoy the outdoors, paddling, and learning about what lies beneath the beautiful waters surrounding Key West.
