We will do this again

We just did this last week and we strongly recommend the Sunset tour. James was our friendly guide and in spite of it being only 60 degrees and cloudy we had a great time. We didn't get to see a good sunset but once the sun was down all the critters came out. James was able to find dozens of different animals (conch, starfish, sea cucumber, crab, lobster, octopus, etc) for us to see and sometimes hold. It was a really unique tour and well worth the money. Bring a camera and enjoy! Kristen and Steve

Great experience

The marine life kayak tour was a very worthwhile experience. It was interesting and fun. The guide was very knowledgeable and personable. He searched for and found a variety of marine life that he scooped up carefully so we were able to look and touch. The kayaks were comfortable. The 2.5 hours stretched almost to 3 hours because none in our group wanted to leave! I would do this activity again next time I go to the Keys!

Informative and unique experience

I highly recommend this trip. This was the second year in a row that my daughter (a teenager) and I did this kayak trip on Christmas Day at sunset. Chris is an excellent and informative guide, and the sea life you see and views of the coast and mangroves provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience. And kayaing in the pitch dark through the mangroves is not something you will be able to do in too many places. (If you are very tall, though, watch out going under some of the low hanging mangrove branches!! The kayaking itself is not overly strenuous and the equipment is all very new and very easy to use.

First time kayaking and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guides are very informative of the local sea life and fauna. Highly recommend for anyone visiting the Key’s.

Fun Kayaking in the mangroves
Tue, Apr 10, 12   10:30 AM Sommerhalder Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
It has been such a pleasure! As a first time kayaker I did not know what to expect... having my 6 year old daughter with me on a tandem kayak! Instructions were clear and easy. As soon as we were in the kayak, we paddled away to the mangroves. So much to discover. We were shown all possible animals on our journey. My daughter was on a mission: a sea star. Not only did she see it but was able to touch it. Our guide made sure she would;) Thanks to Blue Planet Kayak Tours one dream came true. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. We will be back!

Easier than expected

I had some concerns that my wife and I could handle two hours of kayaking, but the trip was easy. Our guide paddled gently and stopped often to point out wildlife. We really appreciated being picked up at our hotel. The Kayaks were in good shape and as comfortable as could be expected. After several days of walking around old town Key West it was a pleasure to spend some time with nature.

Just what we were hoping for!

I signed my family up for this tour on our last day in Key West. We had already kayaked a little during the week, and I was craving more. Happily, my family obliged. This was especially nice, because we could drive right to the site, get in our kayaks and go--no taking a bigger boat elsewhere in order to kayak. The mangroves are really special, and there is so much wildlife particular to them. There is always something to see, and our guide was patient and knowledgeable and willing to show us as much as possible, while being responsible toward this special environment. I would love to do a longer excursion the next time I'm in Key West.

Both my wife and I like it. The length and difficulty level are well balanced.

Informative, new experience for me

I own a home on a lake, so I timed my kayak tour for when there would be a full moon. Moonlight on water is just awesome. Fortunately the weather cooperated, and our tour was not only informative, but beautiful. The tour guide was mindful of the different levels of experience of the kayakers, and promoted safety the whole time. I would recommend to anyone except the MOST experienced.

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
Wed, Mar 25, 09   10:30 AM Sinsigalli Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
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....

Excellent informative adventure
Wed, Feb 22, 12   10:30 AM Sidonie Female Unspecified Combination Family With Children
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
