Would never recommend this

Guy that met us for the ride to the kayaks never introduced himself nor did anyone else with Blue Planet. Our group had two groups of three that had serious issues handling their kayaks, so we took at least 30 minutes to actually begin our tour, then we had to paddle like hell. We spent MAYBE 5-10% of our time in the mangroves. Don't know if this is typical or we were trying to make up for lost time. Our guide was patient with the ones that were having trouble and showed us some really neat sea creatures. When we got back to the dock, no one said they hoped we enjoyed it, sorry for the problems, hope we come back. Nothing. After we left, we got a good laugh at how obsurdly dyfunctional the whole thing was.

We had a wonderful private tour as there were only the 2 of us booked at that time. Our guide James was very knowledgeable concerning the eco system and the environment of the Florida Keys. We experienced the wildlife and the natural beauty of the water. He was able to answer many of our questions and we would highly recommend taking this Kayak Tour

Very informative guide,we enjoyed all the trip and the narrations.

You are able to see(and touch) close up the wildlife and animals.

The trip among the mangroves is something quite different!

We went out with Sarah as guide and as luck would have it, we were the only two on the trip. Sarah was a great guide and we saw interesting wildlife. The octupus was the highlight.

Relaxing, well-rounded water tour

We had a great time touring the coastal area of northeast Key West. The guide's knowledge was thorough & he provided a lot of background detail about the area & those that live there. Our favorite part was padding among the mangroves (sp?) - great fun!

Great Experience

It was my first time kayaking and it turned out to be great. Our guide was excellent in guiding us through the area in small groups. It was interesting to look at the mangroves up close. Along the way, we saw and held sea urchin, starfish, and a few other creatures. The kayaking activity itself was great but somewhat disappointed in the floura and faunas that I expected to see.

Loved everything about this trip!

We went kayaking in two doubles. We packed water, but happily accepted more bottles of water when offered more by the co. They offered the whole group extra water because it was so hot and humid the day we went, and they wanted to make sure everyone stayed hydrated. The heat didn't bother us once we were in the mangroves which were beautiful. We were able to see plenty of life on our trip: sea urchin, sea cucumber, lemon shark, nurse shark, sting rays, jellyfish, tree crabs, parrot fish, and a number of different birds. Our guide would use the net to pick up some of the wild life and let us look closely. We were experienced with kayaks, and didn't have any issues. There were some less experienced, and our guide was very helpful with them, and paced so they would be comfortable. We debated on whether to just rent kayaks vs a guided trip. I am so glad that we chose the guided trip. It was very informational, and our guide was able to spot wild life that I know we wouldn't have noticed otherwise.

Educational, fun kayaking trip
Sun, Feb 1  1:10 PM keenleyside Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
My husband & I really enjoyed our kayaking trip into the mangroves of Boca Chica! Our guide was Sarah who showed us a variety of sea creatures such as sea stars, sea cucumber, some type of anemone & even a baby nurse shark. With the exception of the nurse shark, she scooped each creature up & let us all hold it while she provided information about it. Very hands on! The scenery was beautiful and even though paddling through the mangroves could prove a little tricky for those of us less experienced paddlers we never felt rushed. When one member of the group proceeded to fall into the ocean ( as he was trying to stand-up paddle his kayak) Sarah was quick to come to his aid & he was safely back in his kayak & we were back on route. All in all it was a very enjoyable experience & we would both recommend it to others as well as participate again ourselves if ever back in Key West.

Good tour

The tour was very nice. We were able to see several of the mangroves natural inhabitants. I would definitely recommend this tour to those experienced with a kayak and a desire to see some creatures you'd normally not find on your own. The only downside would be if you are in a large group and some of the group have not kayaked before. We had a couple who indicated that they had experience but obviously did not. Also, there were about 12 people in the group. That is too large to fully enjoy. Much of the time was moving across the open water and through the mangroves. A lot of time was spent jostling for position to hear the guide and then trying to break apart from the group to keep moving forward. The only other issue was the Full Moon on our tour. It made it impossible to view any of the bioluminescent plankton. That was a bummer. If you have the ability to pick a time without such a bright moon, you may be able to see even more. Overall though, a fun thing to do if you've "done it all" in Key West and if you're adventurous.
