Great trip for beginners

We had not kayaked before and this trip was just perfect for us. It was the right amount of time, the kayaking was not strenuous and made me comfortable as a beginner. Our guide was fantastic, we had an opportunity to learn about FL mangroves and wildlife, hotel pick-up was right on time. All in all....great experience and very easy to arrange.

Had a great time! Informative, beautiful! I will never look at mangroves the same way again. I know so much more about them now. Sarah was a great guide. The van came to the hotel to pick us up, we didn't have to worry about anything. We had never kayaked before they went over everything and everything was provided. Perfect!

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.

Educational and Fun Tour

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

Nice Eco-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
Tue, Jul 15, 08   3:30 PM kenbridge Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
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.
