Andy our tour guide did a great job showing us the Boca Chica and we especially enjoyed his enthusiasm for the marine life by finding star fish, jellies, and slugs.

Great Day

Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. She pointed out several species of marine life and gathered them so we could touch them. The trip is fun and adventurous, but not too strenuous. The mangrove swamps were beautiful. It was definitely a highlight of our Key West vacation.

Great time, sunset was beautiful, but not romantic

I love to kayak, it was my boyfriend's first time though and they gave him a small kayak with a leak and he's a big guy. We really enjoyed the advanture and learned a lot. Not much time was spent on the "romantic" part of the tour and very little attention was paid to the sunset which was wonderful. Despite these things, I loved it. I like being in nature and seeing and learning about the local aspects of an area. It was a great experience overall.

Very knowledgeable guide!

Our guide was very knowledgeable...and did his best to show us as much as he could. The kayaking wasn't strenuous for us, and the trips through the mangrove 'tunnels' were exceptionally interesting

Fun Learning

If you have never kayaked but would like to, this adventure is for you. Before going out there is a containment area for practice. If you are afraid of being in deep water ... Chris does not take the tour to the ocean, and life preservers are standard equipment.

Our guide (Chris?) was pleasant and gave both kayaking and nature instruction / information. The experience was unhurried as we paddled through walking tree canopies and in the open water stopping at bird gatherings, for close up encounters with sea animals that Chris netted from the water and for rest breaks. Although remaining relatively close, we were not paddling in a pack which allowed for self explorations. Chris is also very open to taking pictures with your camera upon request.

Unique Activity in the Keys

The evening kayak trip was a unique activity in Key West. While the bars are nice and the other commercial sunset cruises are nice, this personal evening kayak tour was very good. The leader was knowledgeable about the creatures in the ocean and shared that with us. The trip through the red mangrove was unique and the evening made it exciting (and a fun spooky:)). To top it all off, the bioluminescence that was promised in the brochure really existed and was cool. Spend your money here with a local "mom and pop" shop and help the environment at the same time.

The guide was very informative, friendly and really went out of his way to make the trip fun! I loved all of the nature that I was able to see and touch it was amazing! I would highly recommend this outing. I am sorry that I can't remember his name, but he has always lived in the keys. Thanks for a wonderful adventure!

fantastic family activity

We were a 3 generational group of 6, ranging from 15 to 62 in age, with minimal kayaking experience. We had multiple activities that we engaged in while on this vacation, but our grandaughters pronounced this the highlight of the trip! Our guide was so informative and educational. Best parts were at night thru the mangrove creeks and the fireworks of the photoplankton. We would do this again in a heartbeat!

Upclose and full contact with FL nature

Chad's tour through some of the FL Key West mangroves provided an education of the area and afforded us to display how much we could/could not navigate through the mangroves in a tandem kayak. The tour and paddling was an excellent way to see some of the other water and fowl animals. The outting was terrific!!

Fantastic Voyage!

The brochure could not capture into words the experience on the water. Our guide, James, was both excellent at explaining our surroundings and navigation, as well as keeping all 11 of us safe.

To some, this kayaking trip may seem pedestrian, but it was quite a joyful experience to kayak through the mangroves and the bay. The sunset was fantastic, the nighttime kayaking was by far the best experience.

With the supplied head lamps. we were kayaking into the night and watching bioluminescent bacteria respond to our movements.

A must do...

If you like nature you will love this tour. Our guide, Sara(h) was great at spotting critters for us to view and handle if it was safe for the critter and ourselves. Some of the critters we experienced was a huge horseshoe crab, spiny lobsters, the biggest hermit crab I have ever seen, a fighting conch, a queen conch, a sea cucumber, crabs in the mangrove trees, and the best was the octopus! I am sure there was more but I can't remember them all. As soon as it was dark enough we donned headlamps to see by. The water was amazingly clear. Just be sure you are fit enough to handle a long kayak tour.

My wife and I booked the evening kayak trip based on reviews on TripAdvisor, and we were very impressed!! This is a great opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of the southern keys with an experienced, well educated guide who clearly takes pride in his work. Book this trip, you will not be disappointed!!
