Alot of fun and very knowledgeable guide!!

I was impressed with my kayaking experience through BluePlanet Kayak Tours. I went as an individual and there was only 6 other people in our tour. So the small size of the tours are a plus and you really get to see and touch/handle all the water creatures that James (our kayak guide) found for us. It was a fun filled day and James was very knowledgeable about the sea creatures and the local eco-system. I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends and if I get to visit Key West again I would take another tour with BluePlanet.

I enjoyed the trip. This was my second trip with Chad and I would come back for a third! Very nice experience and I have learned new things on both trips.

The Boca Chica tour was great fun. Our guide Sara was very accomodating and knowledgable, and was able to point out a variety of marine life. The trip throuhg the mangrove forest was relaxing and peaceful, and this was a highlight of our trip. We can't wait to go back for another.

We really enjoyed our execusrion. The kayaks are a great way to see the gulf side of the keys, the mangroves were our favorite part. The guide was knowledgeable and took his time explaining the area. We learned a lot and enjoyed the paddle. We would recommend this company and trip.

A good break from the touristy things

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a change of pace from the usual touristy things to do in Key West. You get an up close look at the nature surrounding the islands which you probably would not have otherwise. The tour guides are in tune with the environment and are very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this.

Disappointed
Mon, Jun 28, 10   4:30 PM messypsych Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We are a family of 4 with two 6 year old twin boys. We were really excited about this trip and overall had an ok/good time but definetely disappointed. First of all the guide James was obnoxious, condesending and did seemed to not want to be doing his job. I was expecting to see a lot of fish and other wild life. We saw very little. James did not try to make it fun and did not seem to enjoy children. Usually people find my boys entertaining so even if it was a bad viewing day, with our boys it should be very fun. The boys later on said it was kind of boring and too long.

I would not do this trip again.

Awesome! Romantic! Amazing! Fun! Wow!

I have been kayaking before, but my husband never had been. He was slightly nervous--but he needn't have been! Chad was fantastic! he put my husband at ease and his patience, relaxation, and simple instructions had my husband acting as a natural. My husband enjoyed it so much that he is dying to go again!

We loved everything about our experience and have been telling all of our friends and family. We loved the beautiful scenary and the relaxation of being on the water at night. Chad made the experience fun and exciting, while keeping the calm and romantic element. We loved seeing sharks, sting rays, lobsters, shrimp, fish and these fantastic worms that were illuminescent. Its amazing to see the sparks and underwater nightlife of the bacteria and to watch the spark follow your kayak paddle. We saw so many birds, so much wild-life. We really loved paddling through the mangroves and loved having the headlamps so that we could see everything around us.

The whole experience was fantastic! I have been kayaking numerous times, but this is by far one of my most favorite times. I would recommend it to everyone and everyone!

Definately bring bug spray as the bugs are nasty little buggers after dark!

Nice, leisurely tour

My son and I had a really nice time. The guide was super. She gave us a lot of information about the local flora and fauna. If I had it to do again, my son and I would get the one-person kayaks, not the two-person. It was difficult to coordinate with two people, and even the inexperienced kayakers did fine in the single boats. It was great fun!

good trip leader a must
Thu, Jan 22  10:30 AM Mdstep Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We took this eco- tour in 2014 and loved it. Our 2014 trip leader was very informative, friendly and knew the marine life and eco-systems. However, our 2015 kayaking trip was totally different. The trip leader had us just paddle around the mangroves. If we had questions, he would reluctantly answer them and only very briefly. The only good thing in 2015 was the nice weather.

Highlight of Our Visit
Mon, Apr 14, 14   6:45 PM mdhurst Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
This surprise activity was the highlight of out visit to Key West. James was thorough with explanation and finding critters to see and touch. We quickly got the hang of paddling which allowed us to enjoy our surroundings and we covered lots of water. (No sore arms the next day!) We highly recommend the sunset trip and the full moon was spectacular. The sounds were ever changing with the slight breeze. Going into the mangrove was was a little scary and very exciting. The trip was much more interesting and fun than what was expected.
