Don't Miss This!

I was nervous about doing a kayaking tour because I'm not especially strong or athletic, but James and the team made me feel very comfortable, gave me enough instructions without boring me to tears, and led me and my family on one of my favorite travel adventures ever! We explored mangrove swamps, paddled across the most beautiful water I've ever seen in my life, and met a good variety of interesting animals. James knows his stuff about sea creatures and made the tour fun AND informative. We got some fantastic photos and made some amazing memories! I'm hooked on kayaking now and would absolutely take this tour again.

We loved our Boca Chica trip with Chris! He was an excellent guide, putting us all at ease and sharing his love of the shoals with us. We wish the trip could have been longer! Next time we are in Key West we will definitely be back at Blue Planet Kayak for another day on the water to explore the mangroves and undersea life from a kayak.

Great day!

I happened to pick up one of your brochures at dinner at the Banana Cafe, and am so glad I did. Our family ( kids aged 13, 18 and 23) had a GREAT time kayaking through the mangroves. We were fortunate to have a great guide, perfect weather. Loved that we were picked up and dropped off directly at our hotel, and really enjoyed the kayaking. Glad we had individual kayaks -- we all had great fun! Thanks so much for a perfectly wonderful afternoon!

Cool trip into the mangroves
Wed, Mar 28, 12   10:30 AM manypets Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This was a nice balance of some hard paddling for 15 minutes to get out to the mangroves, and then lots of quiet paddling surrounded by mangroves. Our guide, an old hippy who is really into the biology, was great at finding sea cucumbers, live conches, etc for us to examine, and telling us about the ecosystem. I suspect the tour might be very dependent on which tour guide you get, and we really liked ours.

Katie did a very good job of explaining the plants and animals we saw. Lots of information and sights to see. No prior experience needed.

Awesome kayaking, but noisy
Fri, May 7, 10   10:30 AM maggiepearl Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Although we thoroughly enjoyed the kayaking trip and our guide Chris, the maneuvers by members of the local Naval Air base were quite distracting. Between the F-18s and other military aircraft, we could barely hear Chris at times the noise was so ridiculous. It seemed like such an intrusion to our peaceful little kayaking trip. But I must admit, touching all the slimy little creatures almost made up for it!

Great way to experience Key West
Fri, Jan 23, 09   5:00 PM macdonp Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Other
Great way to get to know what is around you in Key West.

Opted for the two person kayek which was useful to chat with your partner as you explore the different areas and follow your guide.

Certainly make sure you keep warm with a few different layers of clothing, ideally, wear some waterproof materials. We got caught with a nearby boat that generated waves that went over the kayek and we got wet, but all apart of the experience.

I would certainly recommend this activity. Enjoy!

Great guide, wonderful up close look at marine lif
Wed, Mar 28, 12   1:10 PM LynnMGray Male 60-69 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The guide was great, the canoes were adequate, and the routes through the mangroves were very interesting.

We had a great time even for a windy day, 20 knot winds. I particularly liked the guide showing us the marine life up close and sometimes in hand. I would recommend this tour to friends. regards Laurence Gray, Kingston, Ontario.

Perfect--something for everyone
Tue, Sep 30, 14   10:30 AM LynneEitel Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
So nice to warm water paddle. Eric was an exceptional guide. Queen conch, red starfish, polka dot batfish, sponges, mangroves, crabs, cormorants, nurse shark, jellyfish, conservation, orienteering, sandbar swimming...great activity for all ages!

The world looks so much better from a kayak:)

Fun & Educational Activity

Great experience, we were picked up at our hotel at the scheduled time, our driver was extremely friendly. Although we were told to bring supplies, water and sunscreen were offered to us, as well as a locker and waterproof bags for our belongings. Our guide, Chris, was patient with everyone's lack of skill and he knew a lot of interesting facts about the area. Although I hate anything to do with boats and water, I didn't feel like I was in danger at all during the excursion. The tour was well worth the cost (which was very reasonable).

Best part of Key West Trip!
Sun, Dec 1, 13   4:45 PM luanne43 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This was the best part of our Key West trip. The shuttle picked us up and then we kayaked to and thru a mangrove island on Stock Island. We crossed the channel to a bird island where they were all flying in at sunset for the evening...I cannot begin to tell you how many species of birds that flew just feet away from us. And, (before sunset and after dark) the sea life was amazing in the crystal clear waters as well as on the mangrove trees...sting ray, octopus, starfish, sea cucumber, gar, 3 different types of crabs, several types of sponges, all on the serenity of the sea with a super knowledgeable and nice guide, Chad. My 12 year old daughter had her own kayak. Thanks for making our trip even more special...memories we'll never forget and if we're back in the Keys, we'll definitely be a repeat customer.
