We had a BLAST!

The night we went out on our trip was perfect in all ways! Our guide James was amazing, polite and very informative! He made us feel at ease being first time Kayaker's he showed us many examples of sea life including some ugly fat thing that smelled like a rose. We would highly recommend it and look forward to doing this again.

Can not recommend this tour company

There are several reasons why I can not recommend this tour company and in fact would vehemently discourage anyone from using them.

The trip and the guide were completely unprofessional and unsafe. The tour operator and owner of the business was more concerned with getting his money than the safety and enjoyment of his clients. We asked before we took off if the winds were too strong and he just pooh pooh the idea. That evening there were 25-30 mile an hour winds and several times the gusts were so strong that one had to pull with the branches of the mango trees to keep from being blown backward. He rowed first and had no concern for everyone behind. He never checked to see if we were ok and only went back when others in the group told him someone was having trouble.

He did not go out to help a woman who had never kayaked before and had fallen way behind and was unable to get herself back because of the wind and the darkness. It fell to two of the other guests to make sure that she could get back to the dock. He was busy relieving himself.

We didn't get to see the sunset because he forgot until we reminded him and then he just told us to watch it in the clouds. Because the winds were so strong there was not much marine life, we saw a sponge, some jelly fish, and a sea cucumber in 2 and a half hours.

Finally he has never returned our phone calls, and we feel we are entitled to a full refund. I will do everything in my power, (blogs, calling the chamber of commerce) to let others know NOT to use this tour company.

Great one on one fun and learning experience

My fiance and I were surprised to find out we were the only two in the group. So we got a private tour. Quick and through safety and paddle lesson on the dock, since both of us had been kayaking before and away we went. Our guide was great at pointing out all the details, and was very knowledgable. Because it was just the two of us he extended our tour a bit. Got to walk around the sand bar and found some cool horseshoe crabs. All in all I would use this outfit again in a heart beat.

We liked trip and really relaxing. We didn't see as much as hope in terms of marine life but it was really nice to be out on the ocean!

We had an excellent time on the Boca Chica kayak trip! It was absolutely beautiful and our guide was extremely knowledgable about the wildlife we saw. We got to hold starfish, sea cucumbers and sea urchins. It was an experience we will never forget!

My Husband and I took our 8 year old son on this guided tour and we loved everything about it. It was such an enjoyable day and educational at the same time. The tour guide was very interesting and knew his stuff. We can't wait to the night tour.

Have fun and get only a little wet!

This was our favourite activity during our stay in Key West. My husband and I loved the actual kayaking and the serenity of being in the mangroves. Our guide was extremely informative and very helpful when I constantly got my kayak stuck facing the wrong way!

He found conchs - big and small - jelly fish, regular fish and so much more for us to

see and sometimes handle. There were very young kids and my 75 year old husband in

the group so this was great fun for all ages. On a future trip back to Key West we will

definitely do this again.

Great Little Adventure
Wed, Dec 17, 14   10:30 AM Markleggett Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
My partner and I decided to book this excursion while on our pleasure trip to Key West. We really had a lovely time. I'm afraid that I have forgotten our guide's name (unforgiveable) but she really made it special. We enjoyed her excitement when she found a new creature to show us and she was exceptionally well spoken and clear. The tandem kayak was easy to use and we managed just fine. The rowing was easy this day (smooth water) but we were very glad we had hats and sunscreen! It is NOT HARD to do at all if you are of average health. We saw a stingray (yellow spotted), two sea cucumbers of different types, crab, fish, various heron, a weird shell-less snail (seahag or something), sea anemone and brilliant orange starfish! We really had a good time and were famished afterwards! Great trip out!

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.
