love learning about and preserving nature
Sun, May 3, 09   10:30 AM debgeyer Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
The guide was so knowledgable, kind and gentle to the marine life and his guests. He was enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge. Definitely NOT commercialized event. Never kayaked or canoed before? Don't worry, it was easy to get the hang of in a short amount of time. It was a layed back, enjoyable, relaxing time to enjoy the beauty of nature.

Be sure to schedule a kayak trip into your plans!

The kayak trip was a great way to see the Keys from a different perspective-- from under the mangroves! There would be no other way to access these points an see the natural features of the mangrove so up close. The water is so calm and peaceful. The ride is not strenuous at all and the guide is maybe a little too non-chalant, but shared some information about the area and wildlife.

Excellent Experience

Pick-Up at the hotel was great! Guide and prep for kayaking was great! And the trip was completely enchanting through the mangroves -- its Key West from another perspective, which was perfect for me!

on a winter windy day ....
Sat, Jan 31, 09   1:30 PM pandachow Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
Although it was a very VERY windy day in winter, the experience is still nice. It was hard work (a first time kayaker) crossing the channel to get to the mangroves. Inside the mangrove, it was real peaceful and quiet. What a stark contrast with the outside world. I wish we could stay longer and enjoy the peace. The guide is great and we saw conch, urchin, sea star, birds, and lots of sea grass. Best of all, we can see the fighter jets take off/land and doing all kinds of maneuvers because we're right across the naval air station. By the way, don't forget to pack some muscle pain relief cream or pill ....

Knowledgable Guide

I would recommend this trip to anyone who is interested in nature. It is not overly difficult to paddle the kayak and is lots of fun. You get to see lots of different animals including many different species of birds. The guide was extremely knowledgable and enthusiatic in his finding and sharing information about critters of the sea. He even allows for hands on when appropriate. I say if you are thinking about doing this trip----you should!!!!

KAYAKING AND FULL MOON ~ perfect together! I've been kayaking for years and this experience was excellent! Kayaking in and out of the mangroves was a totally different experience. Loved it! Thanks Blue Planet for the unforgettable memory! Highly recommend!! P.S. Buy a T-shirt they are cool! Dorothy New Jersey

Great trip! Go!

The "night" aspect makes this a unique trip. The guide made sure all were ready including those who'd never paddled. Great equipment. Watched a super sunset and then paddled....when DARK, the headlamps were distributed...powerful halogen. After some eco-history we went into the tunnels through the Mangrove island. Twisting and narrow....what a cool way to go. Glad we had bug spray (guide offered more to anyone who needed it!). Got to twist the water with our paddles to see the diamond sparkle of phosphorescence. The guide later spotted and netted a sting ray and showed him to us; then a lobster....This guide was QUICK! We all learned to look down for red glowing eyes indicating a critter below. I did return one tiny fish to the bay after it somehow got into the bottom of my kayak. This is a very special trip, the first night tour I'd been on...have gone of many in the Keys over the years.

Enjoyable Sunset Cruise

Our group of four really had a great time. The crew Our group of four had a great time. There were only two others aboard the boat and we were able to assist the crew in raising the sails. Skipper Josh and his crew were down to earth and friendly, and provided ample wine and cheese. I would highly recommend them.

Fun, calm-water kayak trip
Sun, Feb 16  10:30 AM sueb13 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Fun, calm water kayak trip with guide knowledgeable about local waters and marine life. Suitable for novice kayakers. That day the navy jets were training around Boca Chica lagoon, which made for a noisy trip... not my favorite thing, although others on my trip rather enjoyed it.

Boca Chica Eco Tour
Sun, Feb 16  10:30 AM johndinger Male 70+ Local Group of Friends
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.

A Beautiful Experience!
Wed, Feb 12  5:30 PM Clippership Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We had a great time. The experience of night falling as you are out on the water, among the mangroves, is mysterious, beautiful, spiritual, unforgettable. Our guide, Chad, offered a great balance of teaching, humour, friendliness and, from time to time, silence to allow us to drink in the sounds. We did not see a ton of wildlife (it was dark! also the tide was high) but that didn't matter at all, the simple sensation of gliding along in the night in a safe, guided situation was worth everything to us. Thank you!

This is our second time on the sunset kayak. Last year my wife and I, this year we brought friends. We love the activity and the knowledge of the guides. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to explore the water life.
