We booked the Eco tour and greatly enjoyed the trip through the mangrove forests. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and really searched for wildlife to show us. Easy paddling, good tour, very fun and learned a few things along the way. Highly recommend.

One of the best parts of our vacation!

From a friendly front door pick up and drop off, our entire outing was fun, relaxed, and interesting. Our shuttle driver and kayak guide made us feel right at home and not at all like tourists. They were both super friendly and knowledgeable about Key West and the wildlife . Our kayak guide knew exactly where to take us and we spotted heron, osprey, sea cucumbers, sea stars, jelliies, sea crabs, a sea hate, and a squid! Our guide was professional and had a great personality. And once we got back to shore water was awaiting us and we were taken right back to our bnb. A great time for sure!

Had a great time! Informative, beautiful! I will never look at mangroves the same way again. I know so much more about them now. Sarah was a great guide. The van came to the hotel to pick us up, we didn't have to worry about anything. We had never kayaked before they went over everything and everything was provided. Perfect!

My husband and I did a tandum kayak and weren't sure how that was gonna work out, but we did awesome! It was our first time but we definitely want to do it again. Our guide, Chad, was great and knowledgable. Would recommend this company for tours for sure! Thank you so much for a great tour!

Pleasant and educational

From the time we were picked up at our hotel until the time we were returned we felt as if we were being treated to a fun and relaxing trip. While it was a fairly windy day the guide ( Katie) made sure that we went at an easy enough pace for everyone and she stopped to explain the mangroves, showing the different sea creatures while telling us what they needed to do to survive.

We arrived at the pick up point and was a little worried that I wouldn't know who would pick us up, so I called the office. They were very helpful. The Blue Planet van arrived right on time and Andy was a delight. He led us to the place with no problems. They offered us water and use of the bathroom before we left. Our tour guide was Sarah. She had a great personality, very funny and very knowledgeable. Our trip was very serene. The mangroves were beautiful and Sarah showed us many treasures along the way. Queen Conch, Sea Urchin, Nurse Sharks, Jelly Fish and more!

Fun but bot for beginners.

The tour was fun and educational and the staff was friendly but it was not suitable for people who never kayaked before too long and seats were very uncomfortable for 2 1/2 hours of sitting.

Great Guide
Fri, May 2  10:30 AM tstukane Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Very relaxing and very informative. The guide had a friendly, laid back personality but, at the same time, he took his work seriously and worked extremely hard to assure that we saw everything we came out to see. He clearly knew his marine biology and explained a lot without sounding like a textbook lecture. Definitely the best excursion during our 7-day vacation.

Great Tour

This was a great and unique tour of Key West that I think most tourists don't see. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable and did a great job of finding and pointing out the unique sea life of the keys. We got to hold sea stars, conchs, and even a nurse shark. It was a fun experience, well worth it. Just bring sun screen, you will be in open waters in full sun. Thanks Blue Planet!

Great educational experience!

I wanted to take my 8yo daughter to explore the natural ecosystem in Key West. The Boca Chica Marine Life Kayak Tour was exactly what I was looking for: an amazing educational experience wrapped in a fun activity for my daughter. Our guide, Sarah, was incredibly knowledgeable. She pulled out all sorts of creatures from the water and gave detailed stories on plants and birds we found around the mangroves. You could tell she is a passionate ecologist. I do warn that this tour involves a little workout (especially for me, since my daughter and I were in a tandem kayak, and she was too busy looking around instead of paddling), but the scenery is so breathtaking that it really doesn't feel like one. In short, if you are looking to spend a quiet couple of hours in a natural Key West habitat, or want to learn a lot more about that environment, I highly recommend this tour. Your kids will love it too!!

Sunset Tour
Wed, Apr 23  6:45 PM gpessolano Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Last year I did a kayak tour on the west coast of Florida and it was a highlight of that vacation. The guide was excellent and very helpful to the less skilled individuals in the group. He was informative and I learned so much about the ecosystems and just had an overall great experience. This year I convinced my group of four women on vacation to do the sunset tour, even though some had limited kayaking experience. We had an enjoyable experience, DESPITE our tour guide, James. From the beginning of the trip, he seemed mildly annoyed at everything. He never gave clear definitive instructions on anything. When he made an attempt to explain we were going to do next, he was generally standing in his kayak speaking AWAY from the group and the entire group only heard bits and pieces of the explanation. Don't get me wrong, we loved the idea of the tour and the information that was given regarding the sea life that we saw was very cool. James just seemed like he was frustrated by the lack of kayaking skills, the need for him to repeat instruction (which meant he said the same thing just LOUDER), and the fact that we had no idea of what was coming up next. For example, when we went through the mangrove, half the group didn't hear that we were to follow him and sat in their kayaks. It would have been helpful to have specific instuctions such as splitting the oars or just leaving the oar in the kayak and pull yourself along with the branches because of the tight surroundings. Our group of four are all teachers, and we all agreed that James certainly could have used better methods to explain and instruct the group; it would have made for a much more enjoyable trip. His attitude really took away from this amazing trip. With any other instructor, I would be giving this trip a higher rating.

A must do if you like nature

Fun, educational, and amazing. However be prepared to paddle across wide and at times deep bodies of water. Kids may struggle when fighting the winds. After reading other reviews I wish our guide had been Chad. You might want to consider booking when he's the guide.
