Fantastic experience

We had a fantastic experience in the kayak tour. This was the first time that I was kayaking but it wasn't hard to learn to paddle. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. He took us through the mangroves and the back water (shallow) area and showed us all sorts of marine plants and animals. It was an awesome experience to see those creatures in their natural habitat, plus the information provided by the tour guide made it even more satisfying. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

One advise would be wear sun screen and carry things to eat/drink during the kayak tour because it can get tiring.

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 ....

Relaxing and interesting trip through nature
Sun, Feb 13, 11   1:10 PM Palmerd Male 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We were lucky to have a sunny; even though somewhat breezy day for our trip. We had Chris as our guide and he was able to find some snails urchins and starfish as well as point out the local birds and fish during our trip. We were not fortunate enough to see rays or the sharks in the wild but the paddle through the mangroves and the shallow waters at the Keys was a special experience for some Canadians that simply do not get this opportunity. It was a great day of paddling and Chris was knowledgeable enough to make it interesting.

Very interesting, informative and educational.

My wife and I were pleased to be able to go kayaking as it's something we enjoy doing together. We were fascinated with the introduction to kayaking among the trees and being shown such a variety of sea creatures. We felt very special as we were the only ones in the afternoon tour and we were able to get close to everything our guide had to show us. We would recommend it.

Enjoyable two hour paddle through the mangroves

Our tour guide provided us with a short demo of Kayaking technique and safety instructions. She was very knowledgeable about wildlife and various flora in the mangroves and took time to point out interesting wildlife. It was a very relaxing paddle and very informative. If you are looking for a leisurely paddle through the native flora and fauna, this is the tour for you

Very nice and informative.

Our tour guide, James was very nice and informative as we traveled through the mangroves. He plucked marine life out of the water and was very knowledgeable. It was a good work out as well since I haven't kayaked in 2 years. My 12 year old daughter enjoyed it as well. Highly recommended.

Very friendly guide but wasn't what I expected

very expensive, I would have liked to choose better offers with better prices. It was a different experience anyway.

Awesome Adventure!
Sat, Jul 25, 09   7:15 PM odomclan4 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I don't know how romantic it was, but we absolutely loved it! It was Indiana Jones, Jungle Boat Cruise, and Wild Kingdom all wrapped up into to one package. We learned a lot and the kids really loved putting on the head lamps and exploring. I was skeptical on what sea life we would actually see and I was blown away! Our guide was great and went out of his way to ensure the kids got to see all sorts of creatures. I would recommend this adventure to families with kids and a sense of adventure. Our children were 9 and 6 and we got two tandem kayaks. It was the prefect experience that they are still talking about.

Would Definitely Do This Again

My husband and I had our own private tour with James as our tour guide under the Full Moon. It was absolutely a night to remember. James was a total professional, enthusiastic and so kind. He took so much time to point out all the creatures in the air and sea. The horseshoe crab, the huge starfish, the beautiful spiny lobster, all the beautiful birds, etc. etc. We will absolutely enjoy this tour again on our next visit.

Very relaxing, romantic and informative tour.
Sun, Jan 6, 13   5:00 PM Nugilo Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Sarah was fantastic! We booked this as an alternative to the standard Kayak tour as we thought kayaking at night would be fun and different. We were not disappointed. We ended up being the only people on the tour, so we were able to have our guide Sarah to ourselves. She was very knowledgeable about the local environment and very relaxed and fun. We saw some very interesting animals and were able to kayak in some unique settings, including through mangrove stands- and the night kayaking was very peaceful. We especially liked the different things you see at night from the kayaks. Watch out for the jumping fish. We highly recommend this tour.

Saw many creatures and heard all about them. Enjoyed the beauty of the water, the mangrove trees, and the narrow paths we paddled along. Guide was well informed and passionate about his work.

A Great Experience!

My husband and I took the Boca Chica excursion. He was a bit hesitant but really ended up enjoying it. Katie, our guide, was outstanding. She was extremely well informed about the habitat we went through and was very enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge.

This tour was not the slightest bit taxing and is appropriate for anyone--no experience was necessary.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone considering it, and again, Katie was an excellent guide.
