A Wonderfully Different Perspective of Key West.

Our tour was all it was advertised to be. We paddled at a leisurely pace through beautiful scenery. Our guide, Katie, pointed out wildlife and provided interesting facts about the marine environment. Soaring birds; stingrays; the red eyes of shrimp; starfish; and much more. The sunset was spectacular. The entire evening was serene and memorable.

Wound up being just my wife and I and our guide, who was friendly and very knowledgeable about the environment that we toured. We paddled over open water and into mangrove forests. Guide pointed out wildlife and gave good background information on the ecology of where we were. Most of the water we traveled on was shallow and clear. Not sure how it would have worked with a larger group, as the "path" was sometimes a bit tortuous. Among the wildlife we saw were a baby nurse shark, a live conch, and white-crested pigeons, which we learned are largely responsible for having carried the seeds of plants that grow in the area. I'd say to enjoy this trip you should be fairly fit (you are paddling a kayak) and interested in nature. Also: you will get wet! Kayak paddling is splashy business. And, you will get a lot of sun. Doing it again I would wear sandals or some beat-up old shoes, and would wear light long pants, or double-up on the sunscreen (a hat is a must). All in all, it was an enjoyable and enriching experience at a reasonable cost.

Unenthusiastic Guide/Owner

We did the evening tour with another couple, plus there was one single...I was really looking forward to kayaking under the stars and seeing some marine life...the kayaking was pretty good, and it was cool to don headlamps when it got dark...the main problem was that the guide that evening was the owner, Chad, and frankly he wasn't that into it...his attitude was "you're lucky to have me and to be here..." but he did nothing to make his paying customers feel lucky...there was really no marine life of any interest that night, other than sponges, and a type of clam...certainly not Chad's fault, but he did nothing to jazz it up...he spoke only if you were right near him, and made very little attempt at small talk...I think for $55.00/per person + $2.00 bkg fee, he could at least provide water (he doesn't): I would even provide a choice of beverages...in sum, I could have gotten almost as much renting a kayak for less money and doing a self-guided tour...I don't know where all the rave reviews came from; my friends felt the same as I...

They do a very nice job with this tour. If you are a couple looking for "romantic", probably would not go but if you want to experience the outdoors on the water, see lots of marine and bird life, and just be in a truly unique setting before and after the sun goes down, then by all means book a trip.

Better than the day trip!

My wife and I had done the day trip on a previous trip and wanted our kids to expierence it. When we booked, only a sunset trip was available and we were a little nervous about going out at dusk. We were afraid that we would not get the full expierence. We were so wrong, this was the best trip! It was out of the heat of the day and the kids loved it! They greatly enjoyed spotting and handling the sea creatures and paddling through the mangrove forest with headlamps is a family expierence we will cherish forever!

Very Informative

Great kayaking trip in the shallows and the mangroves. Learned a lot about all the life that is living right beneath the waters that I have traveled over so many times. Great all around trip for those that enjoy the nature side of key west as opposed to anything motorized. You will learn a lot and hopefully see a lot in the two hours you are out on the water. Be sure to bring sunscreen.....

This was an enjoyable activity that anyone can participate in. The guide was knowledgable and friendly. Since you are dealing with nature, results are not predictable but the natural beauty of the area is a great start.
